All battles between Filip Hrgović and Michael Hunter were agreed. The winner of this game will be the challenger of the IMF heavyweight belt, which is currently worn by Anthony Joshua.
However, the Americans gave up the fight with the Croats, and Khargovic’s promoters Karl and Nisser Solan responded to this, calling Hunter on Twitter:
“The wallet bid has already been held, so we had a fight. Helgovic signed the contract a long time ago, and Hunter is still looking for his pen! Maybe he realizes that his work before El Animal was difficult. Michael ·Hunter (Michael Hunter) are you?”
According to Yahoo Sports, he “goes another way and is expected to announce his plan soon.”
This means that Helgovic will look for a world championship game through another opponent. On the IBF table, Hrgović ranked fifth and Hunter ranked fourth. There is another Charles Martin, but he is not interested. Oleksandr Usik is in third place, but he must become a challenger to the Joshua WBO title.
All this brought Helgovic (12-0) to Joseph Parker. The former WBO world champion competed with Andy Ruiz Jr. (Andy Ruiz Jr) in 2016 with a score of 29:2.
He kept his belt in the next two games, but lost to Joshua in March 2018.
