Deontay Wilder’s representatives have “no desire” for a meeting to negotiate a fight against Anthony Joshua.

IBF, WBA and WBO heavyweight champion Joshua, moments after beating Alexander Povetkin at the weekend, made it clear that his preferred next opponent would be WBC titleholder Wilder.

Wilder is first due to face Tyson Fury but Joshua’s promoter Eddie Hearn and his father Barry have sought meetings on a number of occasions to reopen negotiations, with a view to staging a Wembley Stadium showdown for the undisputed title on April 13.
