LONDON, United Kingdom - World heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua goaded his rivals in a series of provocative Twitter posts on Thursday, November 9, as he looks to line up his next fight.
WBA, IBO, IBF heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua (20-0, 20 KOs) is not impressed by the antics of WBC champion Deontay Wilder (39-0, 38 KOs), who is using social media and other online methods to chase down a unification showdown.
"This is a message to the weight-lifter, big Anthony Joshua - the tough man".
Joshua says he has no respect for fighters like Wilder, who are all over social media calling him out.
Speaking of Joshua v Wilder, Hearn told Helder he spoke to Shelly Finkel and Al Haymon (Wilder's representatives) in NY last week and covered all the possible bases.
Fury wrote: 'Wladimir I don't get why you're so bitter about your loss to the Gypsy King.
"Fighting to me is easy and slapping punks like you is even easier".
"So I really don't need to get fit for you, put it that way".
"I'll come to you and I'll punch your face in for you". [You're] Always banging on about your loss to AJ (Anthony Joshua) and how great he is, at the end of they day you lost to AJ by TKO in what was a 50-50 fight right until the end. The referee had to stop it in case you got caught or beat. Useless. No gas, no stamina, too many weights.
While fight fans are pushing to see Joshua take on Wilder after his first-round annihilation of Bermane Stiverne a potential all-British heavyweight clash is one which would be sure to draw little or no complaints. "You want to practice on a bit more speed and a bit less power".
Joshua has got several options open with his promoter Eddie Hearn now in discussions about a unification fight with the unbeaten American Deontay Wilder.
