Deontay Wilder talks Anthony Joshua in an exclusive interview!
On May 18, yet another Deontay “Bronze Bomber” Wilder (41-0-1, 40 KO’s) knockout victory went viral. Under the hot lights of the Barclays Center, the WBC heavyweight champion defended his title for the ninth time with a fresh demonstration of his vicious and awe-inspiring power.
In less than one round, Wilder near effortlessly blasted known tough-guy Dominic “Trouble” Breazeale (20-2, 18 KO’s) into oblivion!
Most thought that the Bronze Bomber would prevail by KO, yet the neck-wrenching speed with which it transpired was a shock to the viewing audience.
As was to be expected, the moment a mic was placed in Wilder’s face, everyone wanted to know when the dangerous Alabama native would face Anthony “AJ” Joshua (22-0, 21 KO’s). While this remains one of the biggest bouts to be contracted in the sport, the subject has grown a bit stale.
Regardless of how outside sources feel about the matter, Wilder doesn’t believe that Joshua himself is an impediment to making the prizefight a reality. While granting an interview to the popular YouTube.com channel, 78SportsTV the champ provided his very candid and upfront perspective on the issue.
“For me, I think the easiest fight that’s going to get made is probably the rematch with Fury. I just don’t feel that Team Joshua wants this fight right now. I can’t say at this point its Joshua, I got to say it’s his team now, you know, because Joshua has taken a lot of heat!”
Therefore as fight fans, we will just have to sit tight and see what comes next. Although, it’s probably not a good idea to hold your breath waiting on a Wilder vs Joshua announcement! Currently, it looks like Luis “King Kong” Ortiz (31-1, 26 KO’s) will get his rematch first!
