According to WBC heavyweight Deontay Wilder (39-0, 38 KOs), he's been pressing Anthony Joshua (20-0, 20 KOs) to fight him for nearly two years time.
Joshua, who holds the WBA, IBO, IBF world titles, will face WBO champion Joseph Parker (24-0, 18 KOs) in a high states unification on March 31 at Principality Stadium in Cardiff, Wales.
Wilder has business of his own to take care of, when he faces Cuban puncher Luis Ortiz (28-0, 24 KOs) on March 1 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.
Wilder, should he beat Ortiz, will be ringside for the Joshua vs. Parker showdown and he fully intends to confront the winner for a public challenge.
The Joshua vs. Parker winner will have a lot of pressure placed on their shoulders to face Wilder next.
However, it appears that Joshua will likely face WBA mandatory challenger Alexander Povetkin in the summer. Povetkin has already been added to the undercard in a featured position, against Olympic bronze medal winner David Price. Povetkin is a huge favorite to win that fight.
Wilder himself was due to face Povetkin in 2016, but their contest was called off with less than two weeks to go to their date, because the Russian Olympic gold medal winner tested positive for a banned substance in a pre-fight drug test.
"The big fight is me and Joshua, of course, and that's who I want," said Wilder to Sky Sports. "I've been calling him out for almost two years now. A lot of people think this just started, but it didn't, it started years ago."
"I told people to do their research and their history, then they'll come up with the facts instead of the fiction. But, I want to unify by all means necessary, whether [Joseph] Parker has it or Anthony [Joshua] has it. It doesn't matter who has it, I want to unify and I can't be clearer than that."
