Deontay Wilder put together a video clip for rival Anthony Joshua and his promoter Eddie Hearn at the weekend which has gained quite a bit of attention thus far.
As things stand, negotiations are still on going for the heavyweight super fight between Joshua and Wilder.
A match that would see all four recognized heavyweight titles on the line and crown one, undisputed heavyweight champion of the world.
Things took a positive turn last week when Joshua’s promoter Eddie Hearn said a contract would be sent to team Wilder last Friday.
But, no official updates have come since then.
What has come since then, however, is this:
Reaction has been coming thick and fast from boxing fans with people not knowing who to believe.
There is a clear feeling of USA vs UK in this whole Joshua vs Wilder negotiations saga.
Lets hope the fight gets announced soon:
Yes I strongly believe that AJ will not go past Wilder ? yes Wilder is relativ unknown but AJ was 2.
All this bullsh about money ! Box the guy without pay !!! I am the best?or am I ???
Let’s go ??

*Cue the fake twitter accounts with long numbers at the end replying to the tweet and trying to reaffirm the remarkable story that Wilder in fact doesn’t want the fight.*
