Wilder: AJ Fight Is “Inevitable”

While Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder will not share the ring on May 18th or June 1st, the WBC world heavyweight champion believes their undisputed title fight is inevitable.

As Joshua undergoes his search for a new opponent for his Madison Square Garden, after Jarrell Miller failed a drug test last month, Wilder squares off with Dominic Breazeale at Barclays Center.

With Wilder preparing in his native Alabama, he wants fans to know that he and Joshua will go down.

“Believe me, this fight is going to happen,” Wilder told Sky Sports. “There will come a day, a day real soon, when there can only be one.

“The heavyweight division belongs to me and I’ve known that for a very long time now, but I’m not satisfied with what I’ve achieved so far.

“I want every single belt, I want to be the undisputed champion, and I want the day to come when there can only be one king and that man will be Deontay Wilder.”

 

“It’s the fight that sets me apart from everybody else,: Wilder said of a unification clash with Joshua.” I’ve fought and hurt every single person that’s been in the ring with me and still they still want questions answered.

“Bermane Stiverne, Alexander Povetkin, Luis Ortiz, and Tyson Fury. I’ve proven time and time again that I will fight any heavyweight, but when it’s as big as me and Joshua then it has to be right.

“Fury don’t want to fight me no more,” Wilder said of his December 2018 opponent. “He doesn’t want to feel my power no more.”
