Watch: Anthony Joshua Mocks Deontay Wilder’s American Accent

Brits and Americans certainly have different accents and ways of speaking.

As someone from Ireland, I always enjoy the different accents in both countries as a neutral when visit or travelling to different part of each respective place.

As a neutral spectator, as it were, both accents are equally as interesting and cool as the other to me.

As it happens, two of the world’s top three heavyweights Anthony Joshua (a Brit) and Deontay Wilder (an American) have been in rather vocal and very public negotiations for some time this year for a possible unification fight too.

But alas, nothing has come of them yet.

I’m not sure will we see it anytime soon either. Likely the back end of 2019 could be the earliest but never say never.

In an interview with DAZN Joshua has let slip a jab at Wilder’s accent in the meantime however:

Wilder has been known to make fun in a playful way of the British accent in the past before his recent Tyson Fury fight.

Expect a response from the WBC heavyweight champion in the near future.

All in good fun and banter of course.

As for now, neither Joshua, Fury or Wilder have a confirmed opponent for their respective next bouts in 2019.
