“Once I get him out of the way I’m free. I’m free. Everybody know’s I want to unify. Everybody know’s who I want. 2018 is going to be a huge year. A lot of questions are going to be asked and a lot of prayers are going to be answered. I know one day things will happen and I think it will be next year. The public are going to force it and the people want it, the people want it now,” said Wilder.
The verbal warfare so far has been mild-mannered between the two. Despite the few headlines and comments, Wilder insists that he isn’t hating on Joshua.
“A lot of people think that I’m jealous or hating, he’s another black man. I’m happy for another black man. But if he’s a man of his word, he’s going to abide it. Joshua said if the people want it, then he wants it. Don’t be a hypocrite and say one thing and mean another. The people want it now,” told Wilder
Wilder says enough teasing the public, he wants to make the fight now. The American also believes that the fight needs to be hosted in the US, especially in Madison Square Garden, New York City.
