I'm ready to fight Deontay Wilder or Tyson Fury: Anthony Joshua

08 December 2018

When they get to the promised land, the land of milk and honey, that's when they fight Anthony Joshua.

Wilder's right arm is his weapon and he was throwing it regularly against Fury though had persistent problems landing his shots. Do you not think if he fought Deontay Wilder over here, 80,000 people wouldn't turn up to see the rematch?

And speaking on Colin Cowherd's "The Herd" show on FS1, Wilder explained that he believes he deserved to have his hand raised on Saturday. You know, I don't make excuses.

He has lost his most weight which he could ever lose and he did that both physically and mentally and had given his most heavy and devastating puncher in the heavy weight division of heavyweight.

"Given that I am the smaller heavyweight, applying so much force and power, my power lasted over in the 12 round". I'm hanging in there with these guys with nothing but jabs...barely throwing the right hand because I wanted to reserve it for the fight - I didn't want nothing to happen.

"They felt they were the only people in heavyweight boxing that people cared about".

"The heavyweight division in America is down", he added. "If he wants to be professional and keep it in a private discussion, I'm open to it". You have to select the title, and I don't think fury did it. I predicted an early stoppage win for Deontay and I would still favor him in a rematch.

Wilder also said that despite the draw verdict, considers himself the victor in the first fight. "They got him winning, they got me winning and some got it a draw".

Showtime Sports president Stephen Espinoza said his network will support a pay-per-view sequel and is looking forward to getting it done after the fighters have time to recover from such a taxing fight. I don't know, " Fury said afterward.

"They said he wasn't going to sell any tickets. My kids have to make their own living and make their own way in life; they won't be living off my name or reputation because that's too easy a route", he continued. Me and Fury did it like true champions.

Wilder had lobbied for a fight with Anthony Joshua, who holds the other three championship belts.

Andy Chatterley, the chief executive and co-founder of Muso, said that they saw a "particularly high level of activity around the Tyson vs Wilder fight".
