Deontay Wilder believes Anthony Joshua and his team are ‘BEGGING’ for a heavyweight unification title fight.
However, the ‘Bronze Bomber’ is adamanthe will fight Tyson Fury once againbefore he can consider fighting Joshua.
Joshua holds the IBF, WBO and WBA titles while Wilder clung onto his WBC belt in a drawn fight with Tyson Fury earlier this month; which turned into one of the bouts of the year.
The WBC has sanctioned a rematch, potentially pushing aclash between Joshua and Wilder further into the distance.
Wilder toldJoe Rogan’s podcast: “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.”
Wilder was controversially awarded a draw with Fury after a dramatic fight in Los Angeles, and the American expects the rematch to live up to its billing.
He said: “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.”
