WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder believes he is the best heavyweight in the world. However, he won’t be acknowledged as the best, until he get into the ring and beats WBA/ IBF heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua.
In order for that to happen, Wilder must handle his business against Bermane Stiverne on November 4 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn.
Wilder discussed his desire to fight Joshua during a conference call on Wednesday:
“The ultimate goal is to get Joshua. We’re not just going to be sitting up here and doing this and doing that. I don’t see what’s the difference between me and any other guy,” Wilder said. “Joshua say he need more time; he ain’t ready. He wants to put himself in a better position. But you already fought a guy that got way more experience than I.”
Wilder just wants to show everybody that he is the best heavyweight in the world:
“I just want to prove to the world that I am the best. That’s all I want to do. That’s all I want to do. I don’t care about who’s the A side, who’s the B side, where the fight’s going to be. I don’t care about that stuff, just me in the ring,” Wilder said.
Joshua-Wilder is probably the best fight that can be made in boxing. These are the two most exciting heavyweights in the sport.
Hopefully, we can see it sometime in 2018.
