WBC boxing champion Deontay Wilder has accepted Anthony Joshua’s challenge for a fight in the UK to decide who the undisputed heavyweight champion of the world is, after Joshua called him and his manager out immediately after his victory over Parker.
Joshua defeated Joseph Parker in a unanimous decision to add the WBO heavyweight strap to his collection at the Principality Stadium on Saturday night and Wilder responded through his manager Shelly Finkel.
“We want to make it public that Deontay wants the fight, and we are prepared to come over, or meet here and get the deal done. Deontay is ready to sign and come to the UK to fight this summer.”
Finkel also revealed that he would be in contact with Joshua’s team at Matchroom this week to discuss plans to pencil a date, and venue.
What a fight it will be!
