Eddie Hearn and Deontay Wilder Put Feud Aside During Awkward Ten-Hour Flight

Rivals Forced to Fly Together After Joshua-Wilder Fight Agreement

Eddie Hearn and Deontay Wilder, two heavyweight boxing giants, found themselves in an uncomfortable situation as they were forced to share a ten-hour flight together. This came just hours after Wilder agreed to fight Anthony Joshua in Saudi Arabia on December 23, putting an end to their long-standing feud.

Years-Long Rivalry

Hearn and Wilder were originally scheduled to face each other in 2018, but the fight fell through, leading to a war of words between the two. However, the recent agreement between Joshua and Wilder brought them together on the same flight to America.

Awkward Encounter

Both Hearn and Wilder coincidentally found themselves on a flight to Los Angeles, with a ten-hour journey ahead of them. Despite their history, they decided to put their differences aside and even posed for a photo together, signaling a new beginning.

Wilder's Comment

Wilder commented on the photo, stating, "Damn, this is wilder than Wilder. If you know the history, then you know what's understood; it doesn't have to be explained. I will title this picture 'Old Endings for a New Beginning'. Finally, the boxing fans will get what they've been waiting YEARS for. The only thing that stands in the way now is Dec 23."

Hearn's Account

Eddie Hearn shared more details about his encounter with Wilder, mentioning that they had a good chat and expressing his desire for the Joshua-Wilder fight. He also emphasized the importance of not overlooking tough tests leading up to the big event on December 23.
