Wilder to defend WBC title against Breazeale in May

Deontay Wilder punches Tyson Fury in the ninth round fighting to a draw during the WBC Heavyweight Championship at Staples Center

However, The Bronze Bomber yesterday announced he will fight his mandatory challenger Breazeale, 33, next on Showtime - seemingly confirming the DAZN offer had been rebuffed.

Deontay Wilder says he can not wait to battle Anthony Joshua for the world undisputed heavyweight title. "It's going to take some time, but I don't think it's going to be a long, drawn-out thing".

"We need to see one champion, one face, one name". 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. "It takes a lot of people and a lot of cooperation to make that happen", Wilder said about Joshua. I've been giving ya'll what ya'll want. One fight, one step at a time. Every man I've faced has landed on the canvas.

Wilder was in talks to face Tyson Fury in a rematch, but that fell through after Fury signed last month to fight under Top Rank on ESPN.

Wilder vs Fury 2.0 was ordered by the WBC, only for nothing formal to come to fruition, which has now led to the American searching elsewhere for his next opponent.

HP unveils Reverb high-res VR headset
Both versions will also ship with dual Bluetooth controllers, the ones previously featured with the previous VR headset. As for where the HP Reverb fits into the market, it's less expensive than the $799 / £799 / AU$1,149 HTC Vive Pro .

"Fury is in the worst position because he doesn't have a title so he has no pulling power and I think out of the three of them he is the most beatable".

So, while fight fans continue to patiently wait for a Wilder-Joshua fight or Wilder-Fury rematch, a Wilder-Breazeale matchup on May 18 followed by a Joshua-Jarrell Miller fight on June 1 await.

The two rivals looked as good as locked in for a rematch and both men were saying all the right things in regards to their pursuit of Anthony Joshua, who now holds three of the four versions of the world title.

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

Eddie [Hearn] has been pushing so hard to make the Wilder-Joshua fight but it just isn't there. After all, that's the confrontation fight fans and the media alike want to see. We made this offer to try and make it easier but there you go.
