Former world champion Antonio Tarver believes Deontay Wilder is taking a big risk by demanding an immediate trilogy with WBC heavyweight titleholder Tyson Fury and giving up the compensation he could get if he let the Gypsy King fight Anthony Joshua.
“Wilder made Fury fight him instead of Joshua. comes out in the ring and does not knock Fury out, then I think that even a victory by a close decision will not satisfy people who say: “I want to see Joshua – Fury fight now, instead of waiting.”
If I were Wilder, I would never give up $ 20 million. I don’t care when, where or how. If someone refuses $ 20 million, then you need to ask who is giving him advice. Who represents this guy when 20 million doesn’t look promising? A titmouse in hand is better than a pie in the sky. I would take 20 million, “said Antonio Tarver.
