WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder (40-0, 39 KOs) is not even worried about a unification bout with IBF, IBO, WBA, WBO beltholder Anthony Joshua (21-0, 20 KOs).
Wilder has placed his entire focus on Tyson Fury (26-0, 19 KOs), who fights on Saturday night in Belfast against Franesco Pianeta.
Should Fury win the contest - then it's very likely that he'll face Wilder in the fall. Wilder is traveling to Belfast and plans to be ringside for the fight.
According to Wilder, he feels Joshua has damaged his name in the United States by not finalizing a deal to fight him in the fall.
The two sides were unable to reach an agreement - and now Joshua is facing mandatory challenger Alexader Povetkin on September 22nd at Wembley in London.
"These guys have lied about so much, about so much stuff it's crazy," Wilder said.
"They also said that Joshua signed the contract. When [Joshua's promoter] Eddie [Hearn] sent the form, Joshua's name was not signed on the contract. It was Eddie Hearn's name signed on the contract. You know man, at this point we're done with the situation, we're satisfied at where we're at, all of our focus is on Tyson Fury right now. We're not thinking about Joshua no more.
"He damaged his name in America and the people are waking up over there in the UK too. Everyone knows who tried to make the fight, who really wanted to fight. A blind man could see the situation with this, and we're done with it. My main focus in on Tyson Fury."
And when it comes to Fury, Wilder expects a tough contest - but he also expect to stops Fury by the midway point of the fight.
"Fury can be a problem for anyone, he's tall, he's rangy and he's awkward," Wilder said.
"I really see this Fury fight going to the mid-rounds, I don't see it going the distance. It's definitely going to be a knockout, that's what I do. I think it's going to be great fight. He's going to come in shape. He's still the undefeated lineal champion and we're treating him like that. I'm taking him very seriously, I'm taking my camp very seriously."
