Deontay Wilder has issued a warning to rival Anthony Joshua that he would be reluctant to leave America for their potential super fight, according to Daily Mail.
Despite the pair ’ s verbal melee being put on temporary mute with both facing opponents in March , they still look on a collision course for a summer showdown if they can get past their respective challengers.
Wilder has given Luis Ortiz a second -crack at his WBC strap after the Cuban failed a drug tests the first time around while Joshua , who holds the IBF and WBA world titles , will face the WBO king Joseph Parker in a historic unification clash in Cardiff on March 31 .
However , speaking at Showtime ’ s annual event , the unbeaten American took the opportunity to reignite talks of fighting Joshua .
“ He ’ s talking about the percentages in England and stuff like that . Bro , 70 , 000 people may look good in a small country, but you are not getting the money like you are over here just compared to 20 , 000 , ”Wilder said .
“ You make your money here in America . The mega boxing is here in America , it always will be no matter what they are doing over there. ”
While there is a semblance of truth to that , boxing in Britain is undeniably booming, too . But the 32 – year- old from Alabama , who has knocked out 38 of his 39 opponents , has predicted a chilling end to that rise by knocking down its patron .
‘ Once I knock him ( Joshua ) out , all of that over there is going to go down and it will be no more, ” Wilder added .
“ So choose your battles wisely, choose your places wisely. Where ever he feels like it is going to be comfortable for him , if he has the courage to beat me then so be it, I ’ ll be there, I ’ ll be waiting. ”
