Joshua: I’ve Been Watching Wilder

share on:

Speculation continues to build about a unification fight between Deontay Wilder and Anthony Joshua, with the Brit saying he has been watching the American.

The IBF champion is focused on another unification fight against Wladimir Klitschko which will be at Wembley Stadium on April 29.

Joshua has described his fight against Klitschko as defining in his career, and looks to build his reputation in the United States by looking to face WBC titlist Wilder.

Speaking to Sky Sports News HQ, he said: “Fingers crossed that I beat Klitschko, then we can look down the line to competing in America against the likes of Wilder.

“He’s been bubbling nicely stateside. He’s on my radar and adds to an exciting mix. I’ve been watching him for a long time and he is very talented, an Olympian who came into the game late but managed to stamp his authority on the sport.

“The United States is the mecca of boxing and we are trying to build an American audience, a bit like [Ricky] Hatton, [Lennox] Lewis and [Naseem] Hamed managed to do.

“You’ve got the UK market and then the other territory is America. I am going there soon to promote and build the Klitschko fight and see the interest.

“I want it all, I want the attention and live for the glory nights. We are building stuff all the time so we won’t be denied when agreeing these big fights.”
