Wilder: We Tried Everything, Team Joshua Come Up With Lies!

According to WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder (40-0, 39 KOs), his team has tried everything possible to make the unification with IBF, IBO, WBA, WBO heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua (21-0, 20 KOs).

Things have been heating up since the Wilder vs. Joshua negotiations fell apart a few weeks ago.

They were in negotiations for the fall, but their discussions fell apart when both side were unable to reach a full agreement on the terms.

Joshua's promoter, Eddie Hearn, claims they were out of time to reach a deal - because the WBA ordered them to make a deal with mandatory challenger Alexander Povetkin.

Joshua will face Povetkin on September 22nd at Wembley in London.

But Wilder is not buying their story.

He says the WBA would have easily given them an exemption to go forward with a full division unification.

“Most definitely he could have gotten an exemption for this fight,” Wilder said. “That was the least of the worries right there because everyone wants it. When everyone wants it, then there’s nothing that could stand in the way of a fight of this magnitude. No possible way. Even when he’s announcing Povetkin, they’re talking about me. Everywhere we go, they’re talking about this fight.” 

“We’ve done everything. I can’t express how much I mean by that when I say we’ve done everything day and night, day and night, day and night. And the only thing they’ve done is try to come up with plans of distracting the fans and trying to come up with plans of lies.” 

“At the end of the day, me and Joshua don’t need each other,” Wilder said. “Not to survive and live. We’ve been doing that before we even met each other, and we’re going to do that after we’ve met each other. But for this fight to happen — for fans to see one of the biggest fights in world history and to see one champion, one face, one name — we definitely need each other.”

[QUOTE=FLY TY;18953146]Wilder and co. offered a $50 million guarantee with upside that was turned down. From the very beginning, he's also said he'd be willing to accept any lowball offer given to him, provided Mismatchroom accept that offer if he…

[QUOTE=Raggamuffin;18953463]They’re just trying to age Wilder. They love fighting who they think are old or inferior...like Wlad, and now world engine head Headvetkin. That’s the UK way of doing things. Avoid guys like GG, Wilder and Rigo and live life…

[QUOTE=MastaBlasta;18952432]I posted previously about bad contracts for championship fights, particularly fights that for sure are gonna be world events. AJ/Hearn team need to come a lot better in my opinion. If they don't, even though I want to see this…
