Deontay Wilder Is Fuming With Britain’s Anthony Joshua

Deontay Wilder has voiced his frustration at why he believes Anthony Joshua is ducking him after recent reports.

Wilder now has a new opponent in front of him on November 4th after previous opponent Cuban Luiz Ortiz tested positive for a banned substance under the WBC ‘Clean Boxing Program’.

Wilder will now face Bermane Stiverne in a rematch instead next month in New York.

But the WBC Heavyweight champion has his eyes already set on unification fights and super matches in 2018 – with the main name on his hit list being Anthony Joshua from London.

Joshua himself boxes at the end of this month in another sell out stadium event in Cardiff, Wales – that is expected to attract over 80,000 boxing fans on the night.

Although Wilder has never boxed in front of anywhere near these sort of numbers of boxing fans, he wants a piece of Joshua and is not afraid to voice his opinion.

He is angry with Joshua for in his opinion, claiming he might not be ready to face him until 2020. Speaking on Instagram here is Deontay Wilder addressing everything on his mind about Joshua:

One suspects when and if the fight between the two does happen, for it to be one of the biggest fights between an American and British heavyweight perhaps since Mike Tyson vs Lennox Lewis.

Both have immediate challenges in front of the first, however.
