On Monday, WBC world heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder joined Joe Rogan on his Joe Rogan Experience MMA Show.
While speaking to the UFC analyst, Wilder feels WBO, IBO, IBF, and WBA world heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua and his promoter Eddie Hearn are “begging” for him to take an April 13th unification fight at Wembley Stadium.
Wilder told Rogan: “They’re definitely begging now. He’s trying to reach out, all of a sudden, his management trying to reach out to mine.
“But he could have had this opportunity. He had many opportunities. He could have fought Luis Ortiz, he could have fought me, he had a chance to fight Fury as well.
“People want to know who’s the best now. Especially after seeing this Fury fight. I’ve been trying to show people who’s the best. I always say I’m the best. I’ll forever say I’m the best until I get defeated.”
When asked about his 12 round split-decision draw against Fury on December 1st, Wilder claimed to the comedian that: “I still feel the excitement. It was amazing. I’m just ready for the rematch. If people were excited and enjoyed that one, just imagine the rematch. It’s going to be amazing.”
