Not just ANY belt, THE CROWN JEWEL among belts. It deserves respect! There is no doubt AJ is the A-side… but u can’t just steamroll Wilder. This is the biggest fight that can be made for a reason… BOTH will bring extreme interest. two undeafeated champs for UNDISPUTED! 👍🏾 https://t.co/zYeIhofzjd— Lennox Lewis (@LennoxLewis) June 30, 2018 I’m very familiar with the process that gets in way of big fights. Negotiations are just that. Each side fights for what they want. It’s give and take… but the upside of #JoshuaWilder for the fighters AND the fans should make this fight a reality. Cooler heads prevail!— Lennox Lewis (@LennoxLewis) June 30, 2018Negotiations for their fight fell apart Tuesday when WBA president Gilberto Mendoza ordered Hearn to make a deal with Alexander Povetkin’s promoter, Andrey Ryabinskiy, within 24 hours for Joshua’s mandatory defense against Povetkin. Joshua (21-0, 20 KOs) and Povetkin (34-1, 24 KOs) are likely to fight September 22 at Wembley Stadium.Meanwhile, Wilder is expected to make his mandatory title defence against former Joshua foe Dominic Breazeale.This fight is without a doubt the biggest fight to be made at the Heavyweight division and the winner of Wilder-Joshua will be the undisputed Heavyweight champion, the first since Lennox Lewis.Advertisement AJ v Wilder the biggest fight in the HW division. They will BOTH make more than each ever has… because they BOTH bring a level of interest to match. It’s what fans want to see. Negotiations should reflect that! I would say 60-40 split in AJ favour at Wembley for first fight!— Lennox Lewis (@LennoxLewis) June 30, 2018 AdvertisementFormer undisputed heavyweight champion Lennox Lewis says that current WBC champion Deontay Wilder deserves a 60-40 split for the Anthony Joshua fight and accepted that Anthony Joshua is a far bigger draw for between them for this fight to be a 50-50 split of revenue.Lennox says that Wilder deserves far more than what Joshua’s promoter Eddie Hearn has offered him.
