My agent have met his men and they’re really going to meet again also, as well. It’s getting nearer,’ the American told TMZ.
‘I believe they will have a warm up battle because of the reality his execution was alright, and mine was extraordinary. You can play around with it various ways.
‘What I mean by play around with it, for example, is this could be a two-battle bargain. There could be one battle in America and one battle in the UK. We could have a battle where he has a warm up battle, and I have one also. In the event that they adopt that strategy, we could battle on that night.’
‘I will go anyplace and all over the place,’ Wilder proceeded. ‘To be completely forthright, he’s simply involving that opening until the point that I get (to him). He’s keeping that belt warm simply like Stiverne kept Sophia warm. That is the name I gave her. Sophia needs a sister.’
