When the fight is over, the victor will leave the ring as the WBC champion and "the man that beat the man" to become (or retain) the lineal title with Anthony Joshua waiting across the pond with the WBO, IBF and WBA straps.

Clearly seeing the fight as just another hurdle to negotiate in his bid to face Anthony Joshua to become undisputed champion, Wilder added: "It's definitely the most important [fight of his career], but not the most hard".
