Is Wilder v Joshua On The Cards?

Could a clash of two unbeaten heavyweights be on the cards?

On December 12th Anthony Joshua has the chance to extend his unbeaten record to 15-0 when he takes on his old foe Dillian Whyte.

It’s a clash that the whole of Britain is waiting for, can the #2 WBC contender defeat an opponent who defeated him as an amateur.

If Joshua wins then his potential to become the mandatory challenger for the current WBC champion, Deontay Wilder, improves and Wilder, with a record that reads 35-0 with 34 wins by way of the big knockout, has promised to honour his commitment to fight mandatory challengers, remarking about fighting Joshua,

“Most definitely. Any fighter that has excitement behind him, that the fans love, that’s who I want. He’s moving up in the rankings. They have their plans for him, and I’m the champion now. We have our plans. Any man that’s climbing the heavyweight ladder and they become the mandatory, they’ll have to go through me. I’m going to be around for a long, long time, and that’s a promise. Every time I’ve made a promise, I’ve kept it.

“That’s definitely a fight that I’m looking forward to when the time comes.

“I’m sure the fans will be looking forward to it as well. I’m looking for all comers. Everybody must go through Deontay Wilder. January may be a date for me for sure. We’re looking to get an opponent. I’m looking to go against some of my rival opponents. I’m also looking forward to my first mandatory bout as well. People are going to be very pleased about it. I said I was going to be an action champion, and I’m looking forward to get back in the ring now.”


Could Joshua be pitched with Wilder in the next twelve months or so or is that too soon for the Watford fighter?
