Deontay Wilder blasts Anthony Joshua for fighting 'second-tier' opponents and hopes Brit rival is KO'd ahead of Tyson Fury rematch talks

Following his controversial draw with Tyson Fury, the Bronze Bomber laid into the WBA, WBO and IBF champ after negotiations for a fight between the duo broke down.


Both Fury and Wilder called for an instant rematch after their epic, where the Gypsy King was floored twice, but outboxed the 2008 Olympic bronze medallist.

Promoter Eddie Hearn is understood to be holding talks with the Bronze Bomber's team this week ahead of a potential bout with AJ.

But it looks as though Wilder is ruling out a clash against Joshua after claiming he isn't even thinking of him.

He said: “I haven’t even thought about Joshua and them. They’re getting what they deserve.


“They felt like they was the only one running this sport.

“Me and Fury came together to show the world what it looks like for the best to fight the best. Look at the outcome.

“They had their opportunity. It could’ve been me and Joshua that had that excitement going on, but their egos got the best of them.

“Let them continue to fight the second-tier fighters and hopefully one knocks him out."

Before adding: "I don’t care what they do. Don’t worry about coming out now, you was already in hiding.

“Now you wanna come out of hiding because nobody’s talking about you guys no more? Enough talking about them, I’m excited about Fury.”

And while many feel that Fury was robbed of one of the greatest comebacks in boxing history, Wilder took to Instagram to try to prove he should have got the decision.

The 33-year-old has showed 'video proof' that Fury failed to beat the count after he was sent crashing to the canvas in the 12th round.
