Joshua: I realized that the pursuit of a fight with Wilder plays against me

Джошуа: Я осознал, что погоня за поединком с Уайлдером играет против меня

Joshua confirmed that it still wants the fight with Wilder.

Anthony Joshua after he regained the titles WBA, WBO, IBF and IBO heavyweight champion talked about a possible unification match with WBC champion DevTeam Wilder.

“Of course I want that fight. I want to unify all the belts, but I’m not going to act rashly. I realized that the pursuit of this match plays against me. So I’m just gonna let nature take its course.

I would really like this fight. It will be hard, because you need to find time to hold the belt. I’m sure PBC was desperately rooting for Andy Ruiz to gather in one company all the belts, but we came and created difficulties.

Let’s see what happens. I realized that the pursuit of this fight is against me. When I have the opportunity to become undisputed world champion, of course I accept this challenge.

I work with great managers, great team. I’ll let them make the decision, because the pursuit of Wilder sometimes leads us to certain traps. So I’m focused on my own path, and if you have the opportunity to meet in the ring with Wilder, I’ll go through that door. But I’m not going to chase anything. Right now we are talking about waiting for the next opportunity.

It will be a hard road to stay on top. Heavyweight division getting better, and I want to continue to improve. Now I have to face my mandatory contenders. But the thing that I won, and I am the world champion in the heavyweight division. It’s so much more than the first time,” said Joshua at a press conference.

We will remind, the world Boxing organization has already stated that Joshua must fight against whiskers for 180 days.
