After his brutal first round knockout of Bermane Stiverne last night in New York, an emotional Deontay Wilder – strapped up with his WBC heavyweight title – was asked by SHOWTIME Sports reporter Jim Gray about a possible fight with unified heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua.

“I’ve been waiting on that fight for a long time now,” said Wilder. “I declare war upon you. Do you accept my challenge? I’ve been waiting for a long time. I know I’m the champion. I know I’m the best. Are you up for the test?

“A king doesn’t chase the peasants. A king takes kings. I want Joshua. If he doesn’t give me the fight we have other plans. The world wants Joshua, the world wants Wilder, I want Joshua. Joshua come and see me baby. No more dodging, no more excuses. Make the date, don’t wait.”
