Anthony Joshua and Joseph Parker

Deontay Wilder Calls Out Anthony Joshua and Joseph Parker

The WBC heavyweight champion wants a piece of Anthony Joshua and Joseph Parker as he calls out both men for a showdown.

Unification heavyweight title fights could be happening left, right and centre before the end of 2017 is over – with the division more open than it has been for a long time.

Anthony Joshua, Deontay Wilder and Joseph Parker currently hold the major heavyweight titles and Shannon Briggs will box for the WBA ‘regular’ belt later this summer.

Anthony Joshua and Joseph Parker are on Wilder’s hit list in particular, as the WBC heavyweight champion said on Twitter:

No doubt about it, the above fights are indeed matches fans want to see. There is a huge debate online at the moment about who will emerge as the best out of the current champions.

Hailing from different parts of the world in America, the UK and New Zealand there is only one way to find out of course.

Boxing News and Views’ Stewart Lawrence floated an interesting idea recently around the potential for the three boxers and a certain Tyson Fury to have a fight off in some sort of tournament.

Just imagine the interest that something like that would generate. Something along the lines of a ‘Super-4’ or similar for the heavyweight division would be gigantic.

However it is looking like Joshua at least will need to deal with his mandatory obligations first up.
