Holyfield Tells Wilder & Joshua To Fight

Evander Holyfield was in Barclays Center when Deontay Wilder defeated Luis Ortiz on March 3rd to retain his WBC world heavyweight championship.

Following the fight, Holyfield was asked by BBC Sport about a unification fight between Wilder and fellow heavyweight champion, Anthony Joshua.

Holyfield urged both fighters to get it done “while the money’s there”.

Joshua would have to go through Joseph Parker to make the fight happen, but Holyfield believes it will and needs to happen because of what’s on the table for them.

”If Joshua wins [against Parker], I think he and Wilder can both make about $250m [£180m] so why not make the money while the money’s there?

”In being a great fighter you make money because you have proven to the people you are the best out there.”
