Deontay Wilder tells Anthony Joshua: You’ll make more money facing me in America!
Deontay Wilder is adamant Anthony Joshua will secure a higher paycheck if he signs on for a massive unification between the pair in the United States.
Should Joshua successfully negotiate a four-belt battle with Joseph Parker in March, a huge clash for all the heavyweight marbles then opens up for late 2018.
Despite Joshua consistently selling out football stadiums in the UK, Wilder refuses to give the current king home advantage and says the biggest cash payouts of all lie Stateside.
“He’s talking about the percentages in England and stuff like that. Bro, 70,000 people may look good in a small country, but you are not getting the money like you are over here just compared to 20,000,’ Wilder said.
“You make your money here in America. The mega boxing is here in America, it always will be no matter what they are doing over there.
“Once I knock him [Joshua] out, all of that over there is going to go down and it will be no more.
“So hey, choose your battles wisely, choose your places wisely. Where ever he feels like it is going to be comfortable for him, if he has the courage to beat me then so be it, I’ll be there, I’ll be waiting,” he added.
Wilder knows the Pay-Per-View side in the US would skyrocket should the contest take place on American soil, with sales in the millions expected for the biggest top division battle since Lennox Lewis v Mike Tyson.
The 200 pounds plus division has been crying out for cross-Atlantic battle ever since and Joshua v Wilder presents a golden opportunity for both men to see their worldwide reputations considerably enhanced.
Las Vegas would be the instant favorite to host Joshua v Wilder at the 20,000 capacity T-Mobile Arena and would see another influx of UK fans invade the world famous strip should the encounter be agreed.
