We won't fight unless you agree on 50-50 offer, Deontay Wilder to Anthony Joshua

WBA and IBF heavyweight champion Joshua is 20-0, all by knockout, after his prevail upon Carlos Takam in Cardiff in October.

A month ago, Wilder held his WBC crown by deck Bermane Stiverne in the first round to move to 39-0, and Joshua's promoter Eddie Hearn apparently held chats with the American's delegates about a potential meeting one year from now.

Joseph Parker, the WBO champ, is additionally in the blend for a unification session with Joshua in 2018, and the New Zealander is cheerful to make due with a 35 for every penny offer of benefits - an idea Wilder won't engage.

"[He is] their best need which is fine. In the event that they would prefer not to battle as of now, that it is alright.

"We're not [going to] pursue [anybody]. I'm not pursuing Joshua. On the off chance that Joshua [doesn't] need to battle, at that point that is fine. On the off chance that they need to have one battle each, and battle me next, that is fine.

"It is an extraordinary battle, it is one of the greatest battles on the planet and everybody needs it.

"It will be 50-50 or else we don't see a battle.

"In the event that they need to utilize parts, not to influence a battle to happen, at that point so be it. It isn't care for I am requesting more, I'm stating this is a 50-50 battle and that is the means by which it is. In the rematch, at that point we can discuss 60-40 parts or whatever. That is more adequate.

"The condition of boxing, the heavyweight division, we can at last say it is back, it is energizing, it's ablaze and to make it significantly more lit, and much all the more energizing will be the minute when me and Joshua remain amidst the ring.

"Every one of the eyes far and wide will watch. We will stop the world in a minute so as to see for the last time, who is the heavyweight champion of the world."
