Australian-based boxing journalist Anthony Cocks has been covering the sport for over 15 years for various print and online publications. He refuses to believe that Roberto Duran ever lost to Tommy Hearns and says that Jeff Fenech would destroy Chuck Norris, Bruce Lee and Muhammad Ali on the same night.

Eddie Hearn has launched a blistering spray directed at Shelly Finkel in the wake of WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder’s interview with talkSPORT.

Last Friday the undefeated American revealed contract negotiations for his rematch against Tyson Fury were almost complete and said he would happily travel to the UK to face unified heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua after that.

But he also added a caveat, saying that he already had two years’ worth of fights lined up after Fury as back-up in case the Joshua fight cannot be made.

Last year the very public negotiations between the Joshua and Wilder camps descended into farce, with allegations flying from both side across social media before breaking down entirely.

In an interview with iFL TV British promoter Hearn didn’t hold his ire back, singling out Wilder’s adviser Shelly Finkel for special attention – who he referred to derisively as ‘Shirley Winkle’.

“Can you imagine if I said that?” Hearn said. “It shows how much he [Wilder] wants to be undisputed though doesn’t it?

“No one asks him the questions. He was in an interview yesterday with Stephen A Smith on ESPN and they went ‘If they Fury fight doesn’t get made, do you think there’s a chance you could fight Anthony Joshua?’

“And he went ‘They don’t want it mate, they’re not interested’. Why didn’t someone say to him ‘Well Eddie Hearn has just said that he sent you six or seven emails to Shirley Winkle and they haven’t replied to one?’

“Because that f****r is so arrogant – Shirley Winkle – he won’t even reply to an email.

“And I’ve tried to be nice because he’s said to me ‘Eddie don’t say bad things about me in the media’ but f**k it. He won’t even have the courtesy to reply to an email.”
