I want that fight - Anthony Joshua

IBF, WBA and WBO heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua (in the white trunks) says his team are preparing to make an offer to WBC titleholder Deontay Wilder that will stop the American from “whining” and set up a fight to become undisputed heavyweight champion of the world.
Joshua said: "I want that fight, no doubt about it. He was very vocal about wanting the fight before I was, because my objective was to accumulate every single one of the belts.
"Now I have done that, Wilder's my 100 per cent attention. We're about to make another offer to Wilder's team - a very good offer that should create a lot of interest from Wilder.
"Hopefully that will stop a lot of his talking and whining, and he can step up to the plate.
"I don't know about Wilder and how serious he is. If Wilder offered me the deal I'm going to offer him - to come and fight for four belts, with a great rematch clause and a great up-front clause - I would grab that with both hands.
"I would be over the moon with a deal like that, so it will be interesting to see how he takes it."
