Deontay Wilder: I am the man to END Anthony Joshua's CAREER

Joshua is expected to face a huge 2018 with fights against Parker, Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder being talked about.

"I am a very proud African American male and proud to be a positive on in a society that tries to make us seem negative because of a few bad apples Anthony Joshua you should be ashamed of yourself and if you don't fight me you ['re] the dis [g] race [shaking my head] and how would your white fans feel about your racist comment saying the black race is superior or even better".

Following on from Joshua's title defence over Carlos Takam on October 28 and Wilder's first round stoppage of Bermane Stiverne a week later, talks have begun for a blockbuster unification bout in 2018, with both fighters' promoters meeting in NY last week.

"We have spoken [on Wednesday] and made our positions clear. This is a fight we want".

"We have heard rumours about what Charles Martin was paid", Higgins told Sky Sports. Joseph has said he was offered less than half.

Higgins insists he could slightly soften his stance of "not a cent less" than a 40-60 split in Joshua's favour, but wants to work with Hearn to deliver an acceptable fight purse for Parker. "You never say never, but not a lot [less]".

"We want a more collaborative, open-book approach, rather than pay us off with a low fixed fee and we don't know what the revenues are".

"I think Joseph Parker has the belt he vacated, so if he offered and wanted a crack back at his belt, we would be happy to talk to him about doing something at either Old Trafford or Manchester Arena".

"His [Parker's] frame of mind, we are very aligned, our camp".

While the New Zealand-based promoter wasn't prepared to disclose the exact offer received by Hearn, he stated that Joshua appears to want all the pay-per-view and ticket sales. I always show respect and carry myself with class by treating people how I want to be treated and in return I have my "Fellow" Black brother who I said nothing disrespectful too calling me a disgrace to my Race???? "It's a big pie and let's share it fairly".

At present Fury is awaiting an outcome next month from a UKAD hearing and must obtain his professional boxing license, then have one warm up fight at least before being in line for a Joshua bout.
