Eddie Hearn has hits back at Deontay Wilder criticism after the Bronze Bomber accused the promoter of ‘milking’ Anthony Joshua

The Mexican heavyweight pulled off one of the greatest shocks in boxing history on Saturday when he inflicted the first defeat of Anthony Joshua’s professional career – taking his IBF, WBA and WBO titles in the process.

Wilder claimed Joshua is ‘mentally broken’ after the fight and that Hearn is ‘milking’ the British boxer, adding that he is forcing him into a rematch with Ruiz Jr that he does not want.

But Hearn has hit back this morning, claiming Wilder owes his own success due to Joshua’s profile.

‘Wilder should have a picture of Anthony Joshua up in his lounge that he walks passed every day and says “thank you very much for making me very wealthy”.

‘There’s no pressure on Wilder… I’m in New York and no one knows who he is.’

Wilder had no trouble defending his WBC heavyweight title last month against Dominic Breazeale, knocking out his opponent in the first round in New York.

The 33-year-old immediately slammed Joshua after his shock defeat on Saturday, tweeting on Saturday that ‘he wasn’t a true champion’ and that ‘his whole career was consisted of lies, contradictions and gifts’.

He then doubled-down on his criticism and targeted promoter Hearn, suggesting that he will not believe Joshua wants a rematch with Ruiz unless he hears it from the fighter himself.

‘This man has said so many different things. We ain’t listening to what Matchroom says. We only want him to do what’s best for him and his career, not Matchroom.

‘I don’t see how you can’t get it at this point. I don’t think it’s gonna happen. Did you see what just happened? This man is mentally broken. He quit. Joshua quit in that ring. To a challenger.

The two will meet again in either November or December after a rematch clause was activated

‘That’s the most disappointing thing about it. Being a champion, being boosted up so much, and you go in there and quit, that’s a sign. When he spat that mouthpiece out for the first time, that’s a sign.

The referee told him to come forward. He stayed. That’s another indication, “I don’t want to fight no more”.

‘He gave up. He quit. Because of so much pressure. His promoters put so much pressure on him. He probably didn’t want that much pressure on him. He shouldn’t have had to think about what I done.

‘It was a lot of pressure and people won’t understand that. I heard he was having a breakdown in the dressing room.’

Joshua will face Ruiz Jr again in either November or December, as there was a rematch clause written into the contract for the first fight and Hearn exercised it on Tuesday.

The 29-year-old has been taking time out to recover after the defeat and posted a motivational Instagram post early on Thursday, with the caption: ‘Don’t let success get to your head or failure get to your heart’.

He has denied that he suffered from a panic attack during the fight, and although he was floored multiple times at Madison Square Garden, leaving fans perplexed at how the multi-world champion was so comprehensively beaten

There were also claims that Joshua had been knocked down just weeks before Saturday’s fight by his sparring partner.

It was claimed European champion Agit Kabayel dropped Joshua, explaining the marks on his face seen ahead of his knockout defeat by Ruiz.

But Hearn told Sportsmail on Monday night that Joshua was not decked by any of his partners and that Kabayel was never involved in sparring.
