Told that Joshua was eager to take him on, Wilder said: "Oh man, I can't wait for him either.

"I feel the same way about him (that I do Breazeale).

"Four months of negotiations and they knew they didn't want the fight. Stop. What more do I have to do for people?

"I've tried to show people and I'll continue to still prove that I am the best. I'll continue to give people the fights that they want to see. But they got to be in cooperation with my team as well too.

"Because fighters, I understand, they have choices. They have a choice to make whether to get in there with the man, the myth and the legend.

"I am that man that can knock you out, at any given time, any given round, any given minute, any given second."

Joshua's promoter Eddie Hearn said last week that there was "a clear desire from both sides to make the fight".

Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that Anthony Joshua's world heavyweight championship clash with Jarrell Miller on June 1 has taken a new twist as both fighters were involved in verbal exchanges during a press briefing.

A few days ago, both boxers came face-to-face with each other in the New York Stock Exchange as Miller pushed Joshua to provoke the champion but he remained calm.
