Anthony Joshua Broke Silence On Deontay Wilder, Tyson Fury Challenge!
Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury fought last Saturday for WBC Heavyweight title. The match ended in a controversial draw. Wilder sent Fury to the canvas twice, in the ninth and twelfth round. Yet, the British professional boxer dominated the rest of the fight.
Frustrated “Gypsy King” called WBC to sack the controversial judge Alejandro Rochin, who scored the bout 115-111 in the favor of Deontay Wilder. Many professional fighters stood by Fury’s side and criticizing scoring. Both Fury and Wilder challenged “chicken” Anthony Joshua at the press conference after the match.
Joshua replied the callout on his Twitter page. The current undefeated IBF, WBA, and WBO champion has already turned down an offer to fight “The Bronze Bomber” in the past. Yet, Anthony Joshua changed his mind. He is now willing to face either Fury or Wilder.

Anthony Joshua earned the score of 22 victories (21 KO), without losses or draws. The greatest success of his career is his 11th round victory over the legendary Ukranian Wladimir Klitschko. In September of this year, “AJ” defeated Alexander Povetkin. Joshua is set to defend his world title on April 13, 2019, on Wembley Stadium, London, England. Yet, his opponent is unknown yet.
According to Skysports.com, Wilder’s co-manager Shelly Finkel stated the team would like to negotiate about the match against Anthony Joshua again. Yet, he demanded from Joshua’s manager Eddie Hearn to “keep the conversation private and remain professional”. Hearn said Deontay Wilder remained the top option for the potential match against “AJ”.
What are your thoughts on this? Would you rather watch the rematch between Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury, or Wilder Vs Joshua title fight?
