Video: Deontay Wilder 45-Minute Interview on Fury, Joshua, More

Heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder is on a business trip this weekend in Belfast. He’ll be ringside as a TV commentator for Saturday’s fight between Tyson Fury and Francesco Pianeta.

But even Wilder has something riding on the outcome of this matchup. If Fury wins, Wilder plans to challenge him to a fight they’ve already discussed — right then and there.

Wilder holds the WBC belt. Fury is the lineal champion, having beat Wladimir Klitschko in 2015.

Showtime Sports president Stephen Espinoza said the deal between Wilder and Fury is virtually done. The only details that need to be ironed out are the specific date and location.

Wilder said Las Vegas. Espinoza said that’s the natural option, but New York is another strong contender. Nov. 17 is a possible date, according to Showtime.

Both parties agreed that Showtime, which has shown 10 of Wilder’s fights, will get the Wilder-Fury bout — available on pay-per-view.

[QUOTE=KTFOKING;19029350]Seen two interviews posted here that were for 40+ minutes. I'm sure he did one with TBV as well but not sure if it has been posted. No way in hell would I be able to do interviews for that…

It's hard listening to a Wilder interview now. He's speaking from the heart and that's to be respected. But it's not entertaining or interesting. It's like he's always trying to convince people that he's worth paying attention to. I liked…

[QUOTE=alexjust;19029244]Of course he would if he believes that Whyte can beat Wilder. Charles Martin was overpaid at the amount not that far off 5 mil if I'm not mistaken. This is how Eddie bought the belt for AJ. Nice purchase,…
