According to Wilder, his team tried every thing in their power to reach an agreement for an Undisputed fight with Anthony Joshua but all their efforts failed but in this case, a win for Ruiz Jr. will make it much more easier to negotiate a fight for Undisputed status.

“With Joshua we tried many, many, many times to get that fight to unfold, to make that dream fight happen for the fans,” insists Wilder. “To unify the division and have one champion. As you can see, that was a long process, a process where, you know, we had different mile markers being stretched. Once we completed (one mark), we had to do something else, do this, do that, you know what I mean. It was a lot.
“It’s a gladiator’s sport, it’s a man’s sport. I’m a man and I don’t have time for games. Being that Ruiz is under the same stable as I… it’s a much easier fight to make, and in my opinion a much more exciting fight.”
