Promoter Eddie Hearn is currently in New York as he prepares for Matchroom’s first ever show in the US headlined by Danny Jacobs and Luis Arias. As reported earlier, Hearn also has an important business to attend to as he meets with Deontay Wilder’s management team today, Thursday.

The hype behind Joshua-Wilder is there but it still lacks build up and promoting. Wilder is not a household name in the US despite him being the WBC World heavyweight champion. He needs a big fight that will be promoted with a great deal of interest and that can only happen against Anthony Joshua.

He’s doing a great job using Anthony’s [Joshua] name, I don’t mean this with disrespect, to grow interest and raise his own profile. And I believe his profile is growing,” said Hearn.
