Wilder said that after he has dealt with Fury, he will unify the division with superstar Anthony Joshua.

He said: “I want to bring it back to the golden days of boxing.

It has not been back since 2004 with Lennox Lewis. Everyone knows that as the heavyweight division goes, so goes boxing.

I am willing to fight him (Joshua). This is not us – they know what we want. If we can’t come to an agreement there will be no fight. I’m moving on with my career. I can’t wait around.”

He also said that Eddie Hearn and Sky are milking Joshua to the British public.

The world knows I tried (to get the fight with Joshua). They are trying to milk the people in the United Kingdom. But after the next fight, I’m willing and I am ready.

I’m always ready. There will be one champion, and there will be one face. He goes by the name of Deontay Wilder.

Meanwhile, Anthony Joshua is in talks to fight Jarrell Miller at the Madison Square Garden in New York.
