Deontay Wilder Wins Arbitration, Tyson Fury Must Face Him By September 15th

By: Hans Themistode Despite promoter Eddie Hearn shouting from the mountain tops that a showdown between Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury was signed, sealed and delivered - Deontay Wilder patiently stood back and awaited the legal results. The former WBC heavyweight titlist suffered a brutal seventh-round stoppage defeat at the hands of Fury in February of 2020. Refusing to go away quietly, Wilder attempted to enact his mandated rematch clause. Yet, despite both sides agreeing to meet in the ring once more, Fury grew impatient as Wilder underwent surgery on his left bicep surgery paired with the uncertainty of COVID-19 forced several postponements. Unwilling to wait any longer, Fury claimed that he moved on and would instead pursue a showdown with unified champion Anthony Joshua. While the pair may have begun negotiating terms for a two-fight deal, Wilder was behind the scenes working with an arbitrator, Daniel Weinstein, to force Fury to meet him in the ring for a third time. Now, after taking several months to listen to both sides, Weinstein has ruled in favor of Wilder. According to reports, Fury vs Wilder 3 must take place before September 15th. The news of Wilder winning the arbitration comes at a bit of an awkward time. Just yesterday, Fury revealed that not only was his contest against Joshua taking place next but the British native even went as far as to give an exact date and location. “I have got some massive news,” said Fury on his Twitter account. “I have just got off the phone with Prince Khalid of Saudi Arabia and he told me this fight is 100 percent on August 14. All eyes of the world will be on the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. I cannot wait, I repeat, cannot wait to smash Anthony Joshua on the biggest stage of all time. This is going to be the biggest sporting event ever to grace the planet Earth. Do not miss it.” Wilder, 35, has sat sequestered on the sidelines since his stoppage defeat to Fury. While he has mainly remained quiet, the Alabama native has recently released several videos of himself working on his craft with new trainer, Malik Scott. https://twitter.com/MichaelBensonn/status/1393304484626026503?s=20 With Fury now obligated to step into the ring with Wilder in the coming months, Joshua could find himself standing across from former undisputed cruiserweight champion, Oleksandr Usyk. For roughly two years now, the Ukrainian has remained in the mandatory position to challenge Joshua. However, he was willing to step to the side in order to allow Joshua and Fury to settle their differences in the ring. Usyk’s contingency plan, involved a contest against former Olympic Silver medalist, Joe Joyce. The winner of their perceived showdown was set to be awarded with the WBO interim title and a mandated date with the winner between Joshua and Fury. Nevertheless, with Wilder winning the arbitration, he figures to throw an unexpected monkey wrench in the plans of everyone.

Demetrius Andrade On Canelo Alvarez Refusing To Fight Him: “You Can Give People The Opportunity To Make A Legacy But I Can’t Do That?”

By: Hans Themistode Reality is slowly setting in for Demetrius Andrade. The current WBO middleweight belt holder has always had an eye on a showdown against Canelo Alvarez. Following the Mexican native’s recent win over Billy Joe Saunders roughly a week and a half ago, Andrade took it upon himself to crash the post-fight presser. In a playful yet serious tone, Andrade congratulated Alvarez on the win and asked him when he would be given the opportunity to face him. Seemingly annoyed with his presence, Alvarez savagely lashed out at Andrade. “Get the fuck out of here,” said Alvarez. “You are a horrible fighter, horrible fighter. You are never going to get the fight.” https://twitter.com/BoxingInsider/status/1391278570291568642?s=20 As the curse words between both men continued, Andrade was escorted out of the building by security. Having had several days to digest the words of Alvarez, Andrade (30-0, 18 KOs) simply can’t understand why everyone else is getting the opportunity to prove themselves on the biggest stage while he’s forced to sit on the sidelines. “He’s a coward,” said Andrade during an interview on the Ak and Barak show. “That's some coward shit. You can give people the opportunity to fight and get in there and make a name for themselves, make a legacy but I can’t do that?” No matter how badly Andrade would love to get Alvarez in the ring, the 30-year-old is fully focused on a unification showdown against Caleb Plant. A win for the Mexican star would allow him to become the first undisputed super middleweight champion of all time. By and large, the resume of Alvarez (56-1-2, 38 KOs) is viewed as one of the best in all of boxing. In the case of Andrade, on the other hand, the Rhode native knows he hasn’t shared the ring with many of the top names. Although he won’t fulminate with anyone in defense of his level of opposition, Andrade is left incredulous when he compares his accomplishments and skillset, to several opponents that Alvarez has recently stepped into the ring against. “If you look at my record, okay but what did Billy Joe do to get that fight? You’ll go in there and fight Rocky Fielding but what has he done for the sport of boxing. What about (Avni) Yildirim? What has he done for the sport of boxing?” With Alvarez digging his heels behind his refusal to face Andrade, the former two-division titlist is seemingly running out of ideas. Although he’s tried on several occasions, promoter Eddie Hearn continues to pace up and down his office when trying to land a big fight for Andrade. On several occasions, Hearn has stated that he has attempted to drag several high-caliber fighters into the ring with Andrade including, Gennadiy Golovkin and Jermall Charlo. Now, with Alvarez also completely taking himself out of the mix, Hearn expressed his level of frustration. “Demetrius Andrade is the most difficult fighter I’ve ever had to make a fight for,” said Hearn during an interview with BoxingInsider.com. “By far.” The post Demetrius Andrade On Canelo Alvarez Refusing To Fight Him: “You Can Give People The Opportunity To Make A Legacy But I Can’t Do That?” appeared first on BoxingInsider.com.
