Deontay Wilder says Anthony Joshua was ‘made’ unlike him who was ‘born’ to box but reveals he still wants to fight AJ


Despite successive losses, it seems everyone is after Anthony Joshua, with Deontay Wilder the latest to call him.

Although Joshua and Wilder have never faced each other in the ring, they have a checkered past, having nearly fought in 2018 after ‘The Bronze Bomber’ offered ‘AJ’ $50 million to fight him, but negotiations have stalled. failed and the relationship between the two camps deteriorated. .

These days, however, with Wilder losing to Fury in his last two fights and Joshua having suffered back-to-back losses to Oleksandr Usyk, a clash between the two men could give them the chance to get back on top.

“I’m willing and able for everyone,” Wilder told the Last Stand podcast. “I still wanna kick that ass…

“I’m not going to deprive the fans of not making this fight happen. I really want this fight to happen. I just want to know if they are real.

In terms of negotiation, Wilder had an interesting view of how they could avoid a showdown between the two sides by taking the fight this time around.

“We’re gonna have to go to California and all of us light one up and discuss it man,” Wilder said.

“It’s a good idea. You can see Shelly Finkel pass it to Eddie Hearn, Joshua pass it to me. It’s so funny.”

If the pair meet in the ring, it’s clear that Wilder thinks he’s cut from a different cloth than AJ.

“They created Anthony Joshua,” Wilder added. “They did it. We were born to do it, not made. Same [in the 2012] Olympics, they gave him that [gold] medal.

“They bought a lot of belts. The way they moved him and prepared him for certain moments, he wasn’t ready for that.

For now, we’ll have to wait for a Joshua vs. Wilder clash as the Brit looks set to take on WBC heavyweight champion Fury.

Joshua’s team have accepted a 60/40 split offer, with a 50/50 split in the rematch if ‘AJ’ wins, for the fight to take place on December 3 and they are awaiting a contract from Camp Fury.
