Soon we will have the opportunity to watch the match between Deontay Wilder and Joseph Parker. This match is important for many reasons. If Wilder wins tonight, as well as Anthony Joshua, we could potentially see a fight between these two boxers in the near future. In the conversation before the match, Wilder emphasized that it is very difficult to be focused on the match with Parker when you know that you potentially have a chance to face Joshua. It's been Wilder's dream for a long time.

“To be honest, it’s I wouldn’t say easy. You know, if I could put it, if I could demonstrate the level of it, I would say it’s been in the middle. It’s been really in the middle because I have Joseph Parker in the front of me. You know, I never look past a fighter, but I do window shop. I do look through the glass window a little bit. But it’s really been a medium type of environment or level for me because, you know, we’re here for Joseph Parker, but everybody want AJ. You know, that’s been the biggest fight in the world. And it still is. It’s been a moment when it’s been hot and cold, hot and cold and hot and cold and hot and cold."- Wilder said, as quoted by boxingscene.com!

Deontay Wilder reacts

Joshua emphasized that there is hype around their fight and excitement. Boxing fans always react positively to the mention of the match between Joshua and Wilder. It would be a real spectacle that would attract everyone's attention. Deontay is looking forward to it, and hopes that there will be an agreement in the future and a match between the two of them.

“And every time the talks is talked about, the level just goes up. … What I found about the talks about me and him is that no matter when it’s talks, it get cold, but then when it get back up, everybody gets excited, no matter what. It’s like we haven’t lost anybody that’s not interested in it, you know, at all. You know, sometimes things can linger on too long, but nobody finds interest in it no more. They’re like, ‘Oh, whether it happens or not, we don’t care.’ But when it’s talks about me and AJ, the excitement automatically just come outta people. And I’m looking forward to it if it happens. But at this moment in time, my whole mentality, my whole mindset mentally, physically, emotionally, I’m set on Joseph Parker. I’m definitely not looking past him at all.”
