AFTER his latest world title defence, WBC titlist Deontay Wilder ramped up the pressure on Anthony Joshua and promoter Eddie Hearn for a 2018 heavyweight unificiation with the IBF and WBA champion.

“Our paths must cross at some point in time. I’m saying why wait. Let’s make it now,” Wilder said. “There’s only so much I can say. I want to unify. Is he up for the challenge?

“I want to prove myself so bad. I never wanted to prove myself so bad. Not to me but to the world. Because so many people blame me for so many different things that don’t have anything to do with me. I tried to fight the best. I called out the best. The best haven’t accepted.”
