“I’ve been waiting on that fight [Joshua] for a long time now. I declare war upon you.”
It’s no secret that promoter Eddie Hearn has been trying to put a fight together with Wilder and Dillian Whyte, but the WBC World heavyweight champion has made it clear he is not interested.
“They are trying to give me a peasant in [Dillian] Whyte but I want the king, Joshua.
“A king doesn’t chase the peasants. A king takes kings. I want Joshua. If he doesn’t give me the fight we have other plans.”
