Deontay Wilder has been talking about the ins and outs of a potential deal with Anthony Joshua’s team, if the two heavyweight champions manage to arrange the fight that the world of boxing wants to see.

Wilder is the current WBC champion, whilst Joshua holds the WBA and IBF belts, and this fact hasn’t been lost on the American fighter.

In an interview to ESNEWS on YouTube, Wilder admits he may have to take the lower split of the purse, but in an amazing show of confidence, Wilder says whatever split he takes, even if it’s 90/10 in Joshua’s favour, then the same deal must be agreed by AJ’s team for the rematch when Wilder then holds the belts.

He claims Money his not his motivation now.

“I’m great,” he claims about his finance status referring to the money he’s made in boxing and making particular reference to the performance of his investments.

It also appears that as the fight will be likely made on Joshua’s terms that it will take place in the UK, and you get the sense that he is more than happy to come to Joshua’s backyard and try and take the belts off the Brit.

Wilder also says that some fans in the UK have given him support, stating he has “a lot of fans in England” and that some of those message him all the time willing him to knock Joshua out.

In another dig at Joshua, he also claims AJ’s last fight against Carlos Takam was “rigged” and says “That weren’t no TKO”, referring to the 10th round stoppage in Cardiff last year.

Wilder certainly believes in his ability, and lets hope when it finally comes to the two parties agreeing on a deal for the fight, that the American is as accommodating in his demands as he’s making out.

Wilder's confidence is admirable, but we already knew what, he recently said he'd knockout a prime Mike Tyson.
