Carl Froch gives his prediction on who would win in Anthony Joshua v Deontay Wilder

Anthony Joshua v Joseph Parker -  World Heavyweight Title Fight

Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder have been in negotiations for some time, but much to the frustration of boxing fans around the world, a deal has still not been completed.

However, latest developments suggest a deal could be made very shortly.

Wilder has taken to Instagram the last few days, where he has even offered Joshua a $50 million guarantee for a fight. Whether that figure is legit or not, it still shows signs of progress.

And Eddie Hearn provided some more good news to boxing fans on Thursday when he announced that both parties had made offers.

When asked whether the fight will happen, Hearn replied: "I believe it will. I do believe it will. The negotiations are opening up now. We've made an offer, they've made an offer.

"There are other models and offers to explore, more details to explore. But the conversation is ongoing."


With a fight between the two looking like a certainty in the near future, boxing experts have been making their predictions on how the fight will go.

The latest man to do so is Carl Froch, and although he thinks it would be a close fight, Froch feels that Joshua will just have too much for the American fighter.

"I believe he (Joshua) beats Wilder," Froch explained. "I think it's a tough one for him. It could go either way but I think AJ's got too much for him.

"Don't get me wrong if he gets hit on the chin by one of Wilder's canvas-scraping uppercuts, and what I mean by that he throws punches from all sorts of angles, and he does a lot of things wrong, but he punches very hard, so if he catches Joshua, Joshua could be in serious trouble.

"But I think Joshua will be too good for him."

Froch also urged Joshua to take the fight, as the world would be 'his oyster' once he defeats Wilder.

"When he's beaten Deontay Wilder the world's his oyster, he's undisputed heavyweight champion of the world," Froch stated.

"He can do what he wants, he can have a couple of steady defences and it quietens up all the critics and all the people that want to see him maybe get beaten or maybe be in hard fight, it quietens then, silences them down so I think strike whilst the iron's hot, the fight's there for him, if that 50 million is there for the taking, go and take it, go and win the fight."
