WBC heavyweight champ Deontay Wilder would have to fight WBA and IBF champ Anthony Joshua sooner following recent developments. Wilder has not had much luck locking down top fighters to defend his title. His proposed fight against Luiz Ortiz was supposed to be a major fight as two undefeated top rated fighters clash. However, with Ortiz being found wanting with doping allegations and the fight cancelled, Wilder is slated to face BermaneStiverne on November 4 in a rematch.
Boxing fans are eager to see Wilder fight top rated heavyweights and not the man he took the title from. The low level of opposition he has faced in his career has been a major talking point so the fight against AJ would have to happen sooner.
