WBC Heavyweight Champion Deontay Wilder To Sacrifice Reward To Face AJ
The WBC Heavyweight Champion Deontay Wilder has made known his intentions of facing the Unified World Heavyweight Anthony Joshua for a unification fight despite having no favours in the financial part of the deal.
The 32 year old from Alabama had initially sent in a 50-50 deal to the Brits camp but despite having unfavorable offers sent back at him, he is now ready to go ahead with the fight, sacrificing financial rewards for legacy.
“I’m a true champion. If it takes me sacrificing a small reward for a greater reward in the future – then let’s do it. I did the same thing with Luis Ortiz,” he told Behind The Gloves.
“I came out on top. That’s the best thing I could have done in my career. The wave is crazy now for me.
“It’s going to be the same thing with this Joshua. He doesn’t know that.
“We are both building our legacy, the story is going to be told. The more they run, the more they look terrified of me, the more they keep dodging me – this is going to be written in the books.
“Every opportunity that I have had was always small. I always had to make an opportunity inside of the opportunity, just like I am doing now.”
