Heavyweight banger Deontay Wilder (32-0, 32KOs) is willing to fight anyone, including former champion Shannon Briggs (56-6-1, 49KOs). The two powerful fighters traded words several months ago.

Briggs, 42-years-old, began his comeback in April after a near four-year layoff. Briggs has already piled up five wins and made a lot of noise with his public confrontations with unified champion Wladimir Klitschko.

Wilder is close to securing a heavyweight title fight with WBC champion Bermane Stiverne.

If Briggs continues to win and works his way up the ladder, Wilder is willing to fight him.

"I’m ready to face the world, whoever feels like they’re the best, I’m willing to challenge them and seeing what they’re capable of doing. If Briggs keeps fighting and he keeps winning, I want to fight him as well too. We’ll have to see, they have to keep winning and keep climbing. He still has to keep winning and climbing the ladder and if he does that, we’ll definitely meet," Wilder told On The Ropes Boxing Radio.
