Wilder wants Joshua
One fight boxing fans have always wanted to feast their eyes on is Deontay Wilder vs Anthony Joshua.
A firefight which is guaranteed to end before the 12th round, Wilder vs Joshua is one of the most exciting fights to be made in boxing.
And Wilder hasn't given up hope of it happening.
He said: "I would love to do that fight in Africa.
"It's still the number one fight in the world for everyone. Everywhere I go, people always talk about me versus Joshua."
"I think it would be an amazing place to have it, to go back home. To go back to the motherland. A continent full of our people. I can just see that being an amazing fight, win, lose or draw."

Deontay Wilder's last fight
Tyson Fury came out on top in one of the greatest fights in the history of boxing by recovering from two knockdowns to beat Deontay Wilder.
Wilder was battered down in the third and it looked like another early night for the American.
However, the 36-year-old former WBC champion rallied incredibly to drop Fury twice in a magnificent fourth round.
But Fury survived a terrifying fourth-round battering to KO his nemesis in round 11 in spectacular style on a wild Las Vegas night.
