Wilder Cancels Call, Pens Letter To Joshua
One day prior to Anthony Joshua’s fight against Joseph Parker, Deontay Wilder alerted the media that he would be holding a media conference call with co-promoter Lou-DiBella.
Now, with less than two hours until the call, which may have been regarding his next opponent. Wilder has cancelled the conference call, and sent this email to members of the press, accepting a challenge from Anthony Joshua.
“First of all, I want to congratulate Anthony Joshua on his win last Saturday night. Anthony, I am so glad we finally heard from you on Saturday and that you want to fight me as your next opponent and you want the fight to happen in the UK.“I accept that challenge and I am ready to come to the UK for my next fight. There is nothing on Team Wilder’s side to prevent me from fighting you next.“You also said on Saturday that your team is ready to meet with Shelly Finkel and Al Haymon from my side to get this deal done. They are also ready to meet with your team immediately. Let us know when – the sooner the better.“Thanks Anthony, I can’t wait to meet you in the ring.”
