“You make your money here in America. The mega boxing is here in America, it always will be”: Wilder

Joshua is heading in the direction of a unification, when he faces WBO world champion Joseph Parker (24-0, 18 KOs) on March 31 at Principality in Cardiff, Wales.

Once the Joshua vs. Wilder negotiations start, there will be an obvious push from the British superstar to stage their bout in the UK.

Joshua packed in 90,000 for last April's fight with Wladimir Klitschko, then 78,000 for October's fight with Carlos Takam, and over 70,000 so far for the bout with Parker.

Wilder believes the bigger money is not in the UK – and they should hold the fight in the United States.

“He’s talking about the percentages in England and stuff like that. Bro, 70,000 people may look good in a small country, but you are not getting the money like you are over here just compared to 20,000,” Wilder said to Daily Mail.

“You make your money here in America. The mega boxing is here in America, it always will be no matter what they are doing over there.”

Wilder believes that a big knockout victory over Joshua will create a downward in the British boxing market – which has absolutely been booming in the last two years – with Joshua's rise playing a big role in that boom.

"Once I knock him (Joshua) out, all of that over there is going to go down and it will be no more,” Wilder added.

“So choose your battles wisely, choose your places wisely. Where ever he feels like it is going to be comfortable for him, if he has the courage to beat me then so be it, I’ll be there, I’ll be waiting.”
