In a report by the Standard, Joshua said that he wants to fight Deontay Wilder, the boxer who holds the WBC belt.

He said, “The reason why I’ve booked Wembley is to face Wilder, so if it’s not Wilder then I don’t know who can kind of fill that void

“I hope to be back there but it’s a fan sport.

“If the fans want me to fight someone and they’re interested they will come out, if they’re not interested then I’m going to end up struggling to fill Wembley.”

“Wilder, if he’s serious, then we’ll definitely keep April as the date to fight.”

A fight between Wilder and Joshua fight could occur in April, 2019.
