Calls Out Deontay Wilder
… Fight Me Already!!!
5/6/2019 3:11 PM PDT
Joshua and Wilder have been trading verbal jabs for years but have never been able to come to terms on a fight contract. A Joshua vs. Wilder matchup could be one of the biggest fights in PPV history.
Anthony invited us onto his tricked out sprinter van in NYC moments ago … and walked us through his fight plans — including some tough talk for Deontay.
Long story short … Joshua says he wants to unify the heavyweight titles — and since Wilder is the reigning WBC heavyweight champ, he wants to fight Deontay as soon as possible to get that belt.
“If he’s ready and wants to prove he’s the best in the world, [Wilder] can come see me,” Joshua says.
As for Joshua, he’ll be fighting 29-year-old Andy Ruiz on June 1 — after his original opponent, Jarrell “Big Baby” Miller, tested positive for a bunch of banned substances.
But, Joshua says he ain’t holding a grudge — he hopes Miller can turn his life around and get right.
In the meantime, Joshua says he ain’t taking Ruiz lightly — despite the fact most people don’t know who he is.
Ruiz is 32-1 as a pro — and Joshua says he will NOT make the mistake of underestimating his opponent …. especially with the heavyweight title on the line.
