Deontay Wilder: Parker is Next

Deontay Wilder says he isn't looking past Gerald Washington but he is already window shopping and looking through a title unification bout afterwards.

The Tuscaloosan Bronze Bomber has already expressed his intention to unify boxing's heavyweight world titles. He recently reiterated that goal of his. However, Wilder doesn't want to unify with the winner of Joshua vs Klitschko, at least not yet.

IBF champion Joshua and former unified champion Wladimir Klitschko will battle it out for Joshua's belt and the vacant WBA title on April 29 in a massive fight in England. But instead of calling out the winner of that bout, Wilder is looking at an odd direction.

"I'm not looking past Gerald Washington. But I look through it. I'm window shopping. After Gerald Washington, we're going after the winner of Hughie Fury and Joseph Parker, which I'm predicting Joseph Parker to win. So, I'm going after Joseph Parker for the WBO title.Parker is next. His trainer hit me up. They want the fight."

Most fans want Wilder to fight the big names next, not Joseph Parker, with all due respect to him. The New Zealand fighter will defend his WBO Heavyweight title against Hughie Fury on April 1 in Auckland. 

Wanting to fight the winner of Parker vs Fury isn't the kind of unification that boxing fans want from Deontay Wilder. But the Bronze Bomber offers this explanation:

"Win those two belts. And at the end of the year, we combine two and two. That is four belts in all in unified division. One man, one face, one title. That is Deontay Wilder. That is what I see coming."

Sounds fair. But before Wilder even thinks about winning one or three more belts, he's got a handful in front of him in Gerald Washington, an opponent who almost matches his size and length and who like him is a knockout artist. Will Wilder get past Washington? Or will El Gallo Negro shock the world by knocking out the Bronze Bomber as he promised?
