Deontay Wilder Dares Anthony Joshua To Challenge Him In America

Deontay Wilder has dared his rival Anthony Joshua to come over to America for a fight with him as he is not ready to fight in Britain.

The WBC world champion spoke with the media as he attended Showtime’s Championship Boxing Event on Wednesday evening.

Both rivals have been into battle talks but are yet to agree on a deal for a bout.

However, Joshua, who holds the IBF and WBA world titles, has been confirmed to face the WBO king Joseph Parker in a historic unification clash in Cardiff on March 31.

Speaking at Showtime’s annual event, the unbeaten American took the opportunity to reignite talks of fighting Joshua.

“He’s talking about the percentages in England and stuff like that. Bro, 70,000 people may look good in a small country, but you are not getting the money like you are over here just compared to 20,000,” Wilder said.

“You make your money here in America. The mega boxing is here in America, it always will be no matter what they are doing over there.”

While there is a semblance of truth to that, boxing in Britain is undeniably booming too. But the 32-year old from Alabama, who has knocked out 38 of his 39 opponents, has predicted a chilling end to that rise by knocking down its patron.

“Once I knock him [Joshua]out, all of that over there is going to go down and it will be no more.”

“So choose your battles wisely, choose your places wisely. Wherever he feels like it is going to be comfortable for him, if he has the courage to beat me then so be it, I’ll be there,I’ll be waiting.”
