American Deontay Wilder wants to take on Englishman Anthony Joshua this year, in the most important fight of recent times.
This was stated by Shelly Finkel, Wilder’s co-manager, in a newspaper report published by The Daily Star of England.
“Deontay made it very clear, there’s nothing, but nothing that gets in the way of this fight from our side. Since Joshua said he would fight Deontay, that’s all we want! Deontay has instructed us to make that fight.
“We are not talking to anyone else, we are not negotiating with anyone else. We want to fight Joshua, we are ready. Tell us what to do, we have not heard anything?
“Deontay wants this fight next. He said he will fight in the UK. There is no reason why this fight should not happen unless they do not want it,” stressed Finkel.
