Wilder Believes Fury Rematch Close, Joshua Will Be Next
Deontay Wilder is expecting his rematch with Tyson Fury to be made soon, then he says he will take on Anthony Joshua.
Speaking to UK radio station Talksport Wilder said the deal for the rematch is all but confirmed. Rumours are suggesting an April 27th showdown.
“Unless Fury backs out if it, or anything of that sort of nature, it’s definitely going to happen again.” Wilder said.
“But to my understanding, as of right now, everything is good. It’s looking like maybe Vegas, maybe Barclays Centre in New York, who knows?”
A lot of UK fans had been hoping to see the rematch take place at a stadium in the UK, Wembley, Old Trafford and the Millenium Stadium had all been mentioned as possible venues however Wilder explained why the fight will take place back in the States.
“It will definitely be back here, our pay-per-view prices are just way higher than over in the UK.
“You guys pay only like $25, but we can go from $50 to $100 easy and that’s with everything!”
Moving on to Anthony Joshua, Wilder is ready to take him on if he gets past Fury, for a shot to unify the heavyweight division.
“If he is ready, I am ready,” Wilder said, “like I said, he (got to) be fair, it’s got to be right down and that is the thing about it.
“They thought they were going to be the only people and everybody has to abide by their rules and rotate around them.
“But we had to show them! I had to grab my career and I had to go and do my own thing and that’s what I’m doing ”
