“The difference between me and him is I don’t just say what I say to please people. I mean what I say. I don’t do my negotiations in public. I don’t do business in public,” commented Joshua.
Joshua confirms that he’s had a meeting with his team about fighting Wilder. Earlier this week promoter Eddie Hearn confirmed he was flying to New York do promote Matchroom’s first ever show in the US but also meet with Wilder’s management on the side.
“We had a meeting and I said ‘are there any offers that came your way’ because Wilder seems to say that I’m ducking him and he’s really interested in fighting me. There hasn’t been any offers saying ‘look Anthony we got this venue on this date. We’ve got this broadcaster and that broadcaster interested in taking the fight and these are the terms and conditions of the fight’ I haven’t had anything like that.
“I’ve taken upon myself to sit down with my team to strategise what I’m going to do. I met Eddie and spoke to Eddie about what I want to do. Now Eddie has gone to America to talk about what we are going to do. That’s the process of how to make a fight,” revealed Joshua.
