Deontay Wilder has agreed to step aside so Tyson Fury can fight Anthony Joshua, allegedly. A new report says Deontay Wilder is stepping aside to allow a unification match between Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua with strict stipulations.
Deontay Wilder will be paid $10 Million and a guaranteed match with the winner for stepping aside, according to the report. It’s definitely strange to see Wilder accepting a deal like this considering his competitive spirit, but it also hasn’t been confirmed yet. On the bright side this means we possibly could see a Wilder vs Joshua match in the coming years.
