Hearn says he ‘needs to vomit’ in live TV interview after seeing Deontay Wilder ruin Anthony Joshua’s £100m payday


EDDIE HEARN has launched a blistering attack on Deontay Wilder following his shock defeat to Joseph Parker – which left him sick to his stomach.

The Bronze Bomber blew his £100million showdown with Anthony Joshua with a lacklustre display against the former WBO heavyweight champion.

Wilder, 38, was dominated from start to finish and didn’t get going into the 12th and final round on the Riyadh Rumble.

It was, however, too little too late as Parker had already banked every round – which resulted in 118-111, 118-110 and 120-108 scorecards.

And Matchroom Boxing chief Hearn didn’t mince his words when reacting to Wilder’s display, which left him wrenching inside.

He told TNT Sports: “I’m just gonna go and vomit, I’ll be back in 20 seconds.”

AJ promoter Hearn reckons Wilder’s Saudi snoozefest is evidence that his past criticisms of the American were well and truly valid.

The 44-year-old said: “I said in the build-up I don’t rate him.

“Wilder had no idea, no clue.

“He lost 120-108, lost every round, and he’s there at the end putting his hand up saying he’s won the fight.

“He’s not right. That’s the reality.

“It was the most one-sided heavyweight fight I’ve ever seen.

“It’s ruined our plans [for the Anthony Joshua fight].

“We’ve got to go back into the changing room and let Joshua know Wilder has just lost to Parker.

“The future is not Deontay Wilder.”

Victory over Wilder – his fourth on the bounce since being KO’d by Joe Joyce – has breathed new life into the career.

The Kiwi said: “It was a dangerous and tough fight but everyone had other plans but this is God’s plan.

“The strategy was I got really fit and stayed calm and focused.

“Today we got the win and can have a Merry Christmas.

“I just want to get back to Samoa to see my wife and family.

“He caught me a few times, only on the guard, and even that really hurt.

“This win is massive because I have my whole team apart from Tyson Fury, Tyson thank you for all the help.”
