“Eddie listened to what Dillian was saying and said ‘I want to fight Deontay Wilder’. Eddie then said ‘okey, this is offer I’m gonna make Deontay Wilder to fight you’ as a promoter would do and a good manager would do. Deontay Wilder wasn’t interested. Deontay Wilder said I ain’t got nothing to offer this guy but Eddie and Dillian are strategising in this way to formulate that type of money. It’s not about Deontay Wilder, it’s about the WBC belt, that’s what Dillian wants and I understand that.
I’m not aware of myself being involved in the deal with Dillian Whyte getting a fight for the WBC belt. Dillian Whyte is one of my rivals. He’s not one of my business partners. So any business relations we have happens with fists, not in a negotiation room,” told Joshua.
The unified champion confirms fight negotiations will progress once he travels to the states.
