Anthony Joshua has stated there must be a fight between him and Deontay Wilder and he will get in the ring for $50 million.

AJ called out the WBC champion, after his unification bout against Parker, for a chance to be undisputed champion.

Joshua said offers have been made to Wilder’s camp, but they are yet to receive a response.

“If it is a $100m fight and they are happy with taking 60-40, I’ll take 50-50. Give me $50m dollars up front and I swear I’ll take that fight tomorrow,” Joshua told Sky Sports.

“They’re not making offers like that, but they’re talking about it, so it’s not real. We offered them a lucrative deal and we are just waiting to hear if he’s serious or not.

 

“They like to jump on social media, rather than emailing us back in a professional manner. I don’t understand where they’re coming from, nevertheless, there’s many heavyweights out there that are serious.”

 

When asked if he expects the fight to happen, Joshua added: “It has to happen. There’s not really been many fights in the heavyweight division in history that haven’t happened when you’re talking about championship level.

“In terms of history, I think that this fight has to happen because it wouldn’t be great for this era of boxing if it doesn’t happen.”
