His rematch with Bermane Stiverne is still a few days away, but Deontay Wilder has already made a statement.

Wilder (38-0-0, 37 KOs), who beat Stiverne (25-2-1, 21 KOs) on points to defend his WBC heavyweight title in January 2015, said that he would hang up his gloves in case he loses his belt come November 4.

“The way I’m feeling about boxing right now, if Bermane Stiverne beats me, I will retire,” Wilder was quoted as saying by Boxing Insider.

“You can put that down. I will be out of the way.”

Should Wilder get the better of Stiverne again, it will only make the pathway clear for a mega-fight with IBF, IBO, WBA champion Anthony Joshua (19-0, 19 KOs) some time in 2018.

And, he seconds that.

“The ultimate goal is to get Joshua,” he said. “We’re not just going to be sitting up here and doing this and doing that.”

Joshua, meanwhile, is scheduled to defend his belts against Carlos Takam on October 28.
