Wilder Claims Check Is In The Mail
Deontay Wilder continues to try and call Anthony Joshua’s bluff. After posting a video on Instagram, initiating a $50 million dollar offer to Joshua, Wilder told TMZ that if Joshua doesn’t accept, he’s a coward.
“I just sent them what they wanted. They said they wanted 50 mil … and he’ll fight, you gotta be a man of your word.”
Wilder is now claiming that since he’d be putting up the money, the fight would take place in the United States. Originally Wilder was fine with coming to the U.K. for a stadium fight against Joshua in the late summer.
Joshua’s promoter Eddie Hearn is in New York for the Daniel Jacobs fight, and was set to meet with Wilder’s management team for negotiations, with Wilder telling TMZ that “I’m just ready to do what I got to do.”
