Deontay Wilder: Joshua doesn’t want to fight me, it’s obvious


Former world heavyweight champion American Deontay Wilder (43-2-1, 42 KOs) has made it clear that he does not expect to fight his British counterpart, also former division champion Anthony Joshua (24-3, 22 KOs), in the future.

Earlier, Joshua’s promoter Eddie Hearn announced a plan for the ward, according to which Anthony should fight three fights in 2023: on April 1 (most likely against Jermain Franklin), a summer rematch with Dillian Whyte and – in the case of two wins – with Deontay Wilder in the fall-winter .

However, Wilder is confident that Joshua doesn’t want to cross paths with him in the ring.

“Joshua doesn’t want to fight me, it’s obvious. I don’t know why everyone keeps asking about this… Everyone should have understood when he was offered $50 million (per fight) and he turned it down. Not before, not now, not in the future – Joshua just doesn’t want to fight me.”
declared Deontay in conversation with Eli Sekbek.

Earlier it became known that Wilder and Ruiz agreed to fight, but there is a problem.
