Wilder v Breazeale booked for Brooklyn in May

Deontay Wilder to announce next fight against Dominic Breazeale

Regardless, Wilder-Breazeale will be the second heavyweight title fight in NY in two weeks; Joshua-Miller follows on June 1. I will bring pressure. "I'm not going to speak negativity on nothing, I'm just going to show". We can only take one fight at one step at a time so enjoy this.' By staying faithful to Al Haymon, his mysterious mentor at PBC, Wilder kept his future options open while continuing to work with his regular TV network in the US, Showtime. An impressive win over "Big Baby" would have potentially set up a fight with Wilder for the end of the year but with the 33-year-old seemingly set to turn down the chance, it appears as though we are back to square one.

Barry Hearn, father of Joshua's promoter Eddie, told The Daily Mail that Wilder's decision to snub the three-fight deal is proof the American wants nothing to do with unified champion AJ. I want to get him out of the way.

Wilder became increasingly intense at a news conference to announce the bout, making reference to an altercation with Breazeale at an Alabama hotel in February 2017 and once more threatening to kill his opponent in the ring with references to funerals, causing dislike amongst fight fans. Joshua holds all the other significant heavyweight belts.

Fast forward to the present day though and any sign of another golden era of heavyweight clashes between the three big men now looks consigned to dust.

Indeed, should Wilder pull off what he claims will be a "massacre" of Breazeale, another meeting with Fury eventually could happen.

However, Wilder has turned down both offers from DAZN, which means the highly anticipated fight against Joshua, as well as the rematch against Tyson Fury, will not be happening.

"The thing about having freedom is that it allows you to dictate your career", Wilder said Tuesday.

The British fighter from Watford is now top of the division with three versions of world titles to his name and he will make his American debut on June 1st against Jarrell Miller at Madison Square Garden. And as we've seen in the past, accomplishing that is easier said than done.

Optimism was high amongst boxing fans heading into 2019. "This is a personal fight for me".
