Wilder Laughs: Joshua, Hearn Definitely 'Begging' Now To Fight!

Anthony Joshua's team are "begging" for a heavyweight unification fight, according to WBC world champion Deontay Wilder.

Joshua holds the IBF, WBO, IBO and WBA titles while Wilder recently retained his WBC belt in a draw with Tyson Fury earlier this month that turned into one of the fights of the year.

Fury, who was down twice in the fight, used his jab and a lot of movement to frustrate Wilder and stay away from most of the champion's big swings. In the end the scores were 115-111 for Wilder, 113-113 for the draw and 114-112 for Fury.

Joshua is scheduled to fight again on April 13th at Wembley Stadium in London, and Wilder is their top choice for the opponent's slot.

The WBC has sanctioned a rematch, potentially pushing a clash between Joshua and Wilder further into the distance.

Wilder told Joe Rogan's podcast: "They're definitely begging now. He's trying to reach out, all of a sudden, his management trying to reach out to mine.

"But he could have had this opportunity. He had many opportunities. He could have fought Luis Ortiz, he could have fought me, he had a chance to fight Fury as well.

"People want to know who's the best now. Especially after seeing this Fury fight. I've been trying to show people who's the best. I always say I'm the best. I'll forever say I'm the best until I get defeated."

Wilder was controversially awarded a draw with Fury after a dramatic fight in Los Angeles, and the American expects the rematch to live up to its billing.

He said: "I still feel the excitement. It was amazing. I'm just ready for the rematch. If people were excited and enjoyed that one, just imagine the rematch. It's going to be amazing."
