The ‘Bronze Bomber’ also hinted he could be in attendance to watch ‘AJ’ make his US debut against Andy Ruiz on June 1
WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder has promised a future fight with Anthony Joshua WILL happen.
Wilder knocked out Dominic Breazeale on Saturday night, with a sickening right hand in the first round for the 40th KO of his professional career.
Joshua will defend the WBA, IBF and WBO belts against Andy Ruiz Jr at Madison Square Garden and fans are desperate to see a huge unification showdown with Wilder next.
Speaking in the third person, Wilder said he may be in attendance for Joshua’s US debut and called for his fans to be patient over a potential bout.
“I know a lot of people want to know when the Joshua fight will happen,” Wilder said after.
“We know that when the big fights happen everything goes silent.
“This fight will happen, the big fights will happen.
“I’ve got a lot of obligations to fulfil. If that date is open to me, you might see Deontay Wilder there.
“When it’s a good scrap that people want to see, you might find me there.
“I think it will happen. It’s going to happen. I believe in all my heart it will happen.”
It’s known that Oleksandr Usyk will likely be ordered as Joshua’s next WBO mandatory challenger – a bout which will be due at the back end of this year.
Unless he can agree a shock unification with Wilder, AJ will have to take this fight with the former cruiserweight king, or lose one of this titles, however he insists that is no problem whatsoever.
“100 per cent [I would fight Usyk], 100 per cent. I’m down like Bobby Brown,” Joshua said.
