WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder has brought out a video of his closest rival Anthony Joshua where he tries to highlight a point made by the three belt holder.
Negotiations have been ongoing these past few weeks with re-drafting of contracts understood to have been made over and over again at this point.
After an initially frosty start to talks to try to make the heavyweight super fight, everything went quiet in the media these past couple of weeks.
Usually a positive indicator a fight is about to be made going off past boxing history.
However this video released by Wilder today suggests things could have hit a snag, again:
You see people talk the “G??D” talk but are not prepared to walk thru the valley of the shadow of Death. To come and get it. He said he once went to hell and back and he enjoyed it.

A lot has been made of the $50 million dollar offer and the initial clip taken from IFL TV with Joshua saying on camera he’s do the fight for the said sum.
Joshua’s promoter Eddie Hearn did say in recent weeks that talks had become more positive but it is unclear whether things are any clearer to be signed or not at this stage.
