WBC Heavyweight World Champion Deontay Wilder sat down for an exclusive video interview with Brendan Schaub for the SHOWTIME Sports digital talk show BELOW THE BELT where the American champion opens up about the contentious negotiation process for a unification fight with IBF, WBA and WBO Champion Anthony Joshua. 

“It’s 50-50 straight across,” Wilder tells Schaub during the interview that taped Thursday in Los Angeles. “I am not accepting no flat fee… I am done with that.”
