As undefeated IBF Heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua 18-0 (18ko’s) takes to America to build his fight with Wladimir Klitschko 64-4 (53ko’s) he has stated his desire to unify the division by facing the WBC champion Deontay Wilder 37-0 (36ko’s).

Joshua has signed a deal with U.S broadcaster showtime and will be going over with his promoter Eddie Hearn to capitalize on their deal. Joshua v Klitschko will take place on April 29th and these plans could end up in the bin if Joshua falls short against the Ukrainian veteran.

“Fingers crossed that I beat Klitschko, then we can look down the line to competing in America against the likes of Wilder. He’s been bubbling nicely stateside. He’s on my radar and adds to an exciting mix. I’ve been watching him for a long time and he is very talented, an Olympian who came into the game late but managed to stamp his authority on the sport,” Joshua told Sky Sports.

“The United States is the mecca of boxing and we are trying to build an American audience, a bit like Hatton, Lewis and Hamed managed to do. You’ve got the UK market and then the other territory is America. I am going there soon to promote and build the Klitschko fight and see the interest. I want it all, I want the attention and live for the glory nights. We are building stuff all the time so we won’t be denied when agreeing these big fights.”
