Deontay Wilder admits he only has a few more years in the sport before he hangs up the gloves and is only interested in the biggest possible fights before that day comes – but he’s not short of offers.
Wilder looks set to finally face Anthony Joshua in Saudi Arabia this December having been linked to a fight for years. At one stage, the two controlled all the belts in the heavyweight division and were in negotiations for an undisputed clash.
Fast forward to today and both men have lost their titles – but that doesn’t seem to have taken away the intrigue from the bout, with many still believing it’s close to the biggest fight in boxing today.
If plans fall through, or Wilder wins and fights on, there’s an offer for an all-American clash waiting for him.
‘AJ’ went on to face Andy Ruiz Jr who caused one of the biggest upsets in boxing history when he dethroned the Brit by seventh round stoppage.
Miller is looking at a shot at the big time once more and has been vocal with his callouts to those sitting at the top of boxing’s blue-ribbon division.
In a video captured by BroBible, ‘Big Baby’ says he would happily ‘f**k up’ ‘The Bronze Bomber’.
“I would f**k Wilder up. I would f**k him up. Wilder’s been asking about me – you know where I’m at buddy.
But there’s more money in me and him getting rid of the AJ’s, the Tyson’s, the Uysk’s and then me and him have an all American heavyweight clash. If we take all them out then we can do a bomb squad vs big baby and I’ll smash that dude up.”
Whether any top heavyweight would be willing to give the controversial American another shot at the big time remains to be seen.
