Wilder, Joshua face-off in Wembley

Deontay Wilder’s long-time trainer, Malik Scott claims the ‘Bronze Bomber’ would agree to fight Anthony Joshua at Wembley Stadium in London.

The former heavyweight world champion hasn’t fought since his shock defeat to Joseph Parker back in December and is desperate to get back in the win column in his upcoming fight with Zhilei Zhang on the 1st of June. A one-of-a-kind event was announced Monday as a squad of fighters representing Queensberry Promotions take on boxers from Matchroom in a unique five vs. five event to take place on June1 in Saudi Arabia.

In one of the more intriguing plot twists, Wilder— a long-time rival of Eddie Hearn’s prized fighter Joshua — will represent Hearn’s Matchroom.

Another defeat could spell the end of Wilder’s glittering career. However, a huge win in Saudi Arabia could put his name back into the world title mix.

A showdown with the winner of Tyson Fury’s undisputed showdown with Usyk is on the American’s radar, and he believes he would have an easier night against the Ukrainian.

That said, Wilder is also eyeing up a showdown with ‘AJ,’ and his trainer believes he’d be willing to fight the Brit in England.

Both Wilder and Joshua have been tipped to fight each other for a while, but the American claimed Joshua turned down a lucrative offer to do battle.

Speaking about a potential clash between Wilder and Joshua in the UK, Scott told Casino Online In: “If Joshua’s free, that’s a bigger name than Jared Anderson. Deontay for the right price and the right legacy would fly to Wembley to fight AJ faster than Superman changes clothes.

“Deontay would fight AJ anywhere. He went to Russia to fight Povetkin and he’ll fight anyone anywhere in the world. He’s a world fighter, not a fighter that just fights at home. I also believe Deontay wants the Tyson Fury fight before he retires, Fury is definitely on his hit list and he is very open to it.”

With a lot on the line next month, Scott believes ‘The Bronze Bomber’ is remotivated ahead of his showdown with the Chinese superstar.
