For weeks now, there is one fight more than any other that has been on every boxing fans' lips - Anthony Joshua vs Deontay Wilder.
UK vs USA, unbeaten streak against unbeaten streak, a fight that if made, will undoubtedly be one for the ages, however, for now, it is still an if.
After two juxtaposing victories in the space of seven days for AJ and Wilder, the general consensus on how Wilder would fare in any potential dream clash with Joshua have for once begun to look more in favour of an American triumph, with AJ's first uninspiring performance coming against Carlos Takam just over two weeks ago.
Joshua has been a character who has, so far in his career, always been honest with the public, never shying away from speaking his beliefs.
His mindset is still the same as he addresses Wilder, who has persistently in the past 10 days talked a lot about how it is his destiny to knock AJ out in 2018.
"I am not in the business of making promises that I can't fulfil. I am working on getting this fight done," Joshua stated.
Thus far in his career, the unbeaten behemoth from Watford has repeatedly stated that in this business, talk is cheap, and he is of the opinion Wilder could be running his mouth to create hype for a contest that is becoming difficult to negotiate.
"If they are realistic about what they want, we can definitely make this fight happen."
Putting the onus back on the Bronze Bomber, AJ tells all that unlike Wilder, his team have dealt with the biggest name in the sport for the last decade Wladimir Klitschko and managed to secure a deal that suited both parties down to a tee.
"Providing Deontay Wilder is true to his word this fight will happen in 2018."
Joshua's parting shot at the unbeaten American will hopefully spur Wilder on to get this deal sorted sooner rather than later for a fight that waters the mouths of every spectator of heavyweight boxing today.
