WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder will soon travel to Wales to watch his rival face WBO champion Joseph Parker where it is understood he will be ringside and possibly planning call out of Joshua afterwards.
Call outs and face offs in the ring after one big fight is over, to set up the promotion of the next big fight, is common place in boxing.
However the idea behind the scenes for Wilder to do this at the end of the month, should Joshua beat Parker, was thought to have been advised against doing so by his handlers.
That hasn’t stopped Deontay getting on the hype train a couple of weeks out from the fight in another way, as captured here by the guys at Fight Hype YouTube (hat tip):
Exploding toy heads side, surely he knows that finding the target on Joshua will be much more difficult in reality.
If ever there was a clash of styles between a more technical type fighter, like Joshua has become over the last year or so in particular, against a wild, unpredictable bomber like Wilder, this is surely it.
Both carry the one punch knockout power but deliver it in very different ways.
It should be interesting to see what Wilder has planned on fight night for Joshua vs Parker.
Expect plenty more stunts like the above.
