Fury Slams 'Weightlifter' Joshua, Begs Wilder not to Finish him off Before He Does

Joshua's promoter Eddie Hearn had proposed Wilder should face another Briton, Dillian Whyte, a former Joshua victim, before any potential match, leaving the American to growl: "A king doesn't chase the peasants, a king takes on kings".

That is according to WBO champion Parker's promoter David Higgins, who has "exchanged emails" with Eddie Hearn.

The "common ground" Hearn speaks of is nearly certainly Parker and Wilder accepting whatever purse they deem fit for a Sky Sports Box Office event, with further PPV revenue around the world (US or New Zealand) to be addressed.

My message was Joe would fight Joshua next and Hearn's message was that Joshua would fight Parker next. But if you want to stay at home like a little girl, this king has no problem travelling to knock out the champion.

WBO heavyweight champion Parker on Wednesday spoke of his desire to step into the ring with Joshua early next year as he eyes the 28-year-old's IBF and WBA straps.

"I'm serious about becoming undisputed heavyweight champion and we're making sure these guys who are making noise will back up what they're saying. If Wilder's not making an offer, we'll do it on my terms".

"Let's present him with an offer, and see how they feel about that".

"That only goes to the champions: Deontay Wilder and Joseph Parker".

Already, 50,000 Haitian TPS recipients, who expect administrative decisions by Thanksgiving, are preparing for the worst. Congress is the only body with the authority to create a path to permanent legal status for TPS holders.

Joshua also said that he would preferably have an arrangement in place with Wilder by Christmas, so that he can begin his fight preparations in the first week of January.

Both heavyweights have spent the past couple of weeks calling out the British champion - on social media and in interviews - and Joshua has responded to both.

Adamant that he will resolve the issues and return to the ring next year, he claimed in a tweet that he could still beat Wilder and Joshua "even at 25 stone and after being out nearly 2 years!"

"I believe if I go to America or to Britain, I will beat them both and knock them out". "There has never been an offer".

"We basically want the biggest possible stadium and if Wembley is not available, the next best would be Twickenham".

"What we then have to do - which Eddie's doing - is fly out to the United States to make time". From our side, we are in it 100 per cent.

"Those (other) fights would be good to keep busy, but the ultimate fight is to fight Joshua".

Joshua's fight with Takam in Cardiff was a huge success and broke Muhammad Ali's longstanding record for the biggest indoor boxing crowd.
