You know, one of them, he always come to camp on some basis or whatever. He always around. He in and out anyway. But we’ll see what happens. I think we’ve got a great team that’s gonna be formed. Once everything goes back to normal, hopefully it’ll be sooner than later, and I can get my team in order and we can move forward with our game plan for the third fight.”

“We’ve been having a lot of people reach out and different things and whatnot, you know,” Wilder said. “But you just have to be careful with that, because a lot of people see this time and they just want publicity. They wanna be able to say they was the name that, you know, they was the name that came in and stuff like that. And just look at it a different way. That’s how I’m looking at it, and that’s how I know boxing. Boxing is very crooked. It’s a dirty business.
“You know, you’ve gotta make sure you be careful. It’s a corrupt sport as well – very. … You’ve gotta be careful about the people that you bring around, what the intent of that person is trying to come in to help, especially when they never reached out before and wanna seize an opportunity. You know, I done seen so much, I done been around so much, I done had people tell me things, tell me not to go and do this and say this, and then they turn around and do the same sh*t they told me not to do. You know what I’m saying? It’s a lot of stuff go on in boxing. Who can you trust?”
