Both fighters are undefeated though Wilder has more experience as a professional than Anthony Joshua owning 37KOs in 38 fights while Anthony Joshua owns (19-0, 19 KOs) and both will really love to lay down their titles for this fight.

“When I hear stuff like that as a champion, as an aggressive champion and as a confident champion, I look at that as a lack of confidence,” Wilder told BoxingScene.

“He’s talking about ‘sooner or later’ or he’s talking about how long I’ve been a pro and how he needs more time. That’s a sign of weakness in your mentality to me. If you’re a champion, you must be prepared and you must be ready at all times. That’s what it’s about, being a champion. And if you’re not prepared, if you’re not ready for anything that comes your way, you need to give up the belt.”

Anthony Joshua made mention of the differences in their experience Ann this didn't go too well with Wilder who thinks that Joshua should be a more confident champion after taking down the more experienced and Career legend Wladimir Klitschko just few months back.

“When he tells me about how long I’ve been a professional, then look at Klitschko,” Wilder said. “Klitschko’s been a professional way longer than I, he’s got way more knockouts on his record than I, he’s got way more wins on his record than I and he’s been around a really long time. So when he’s talking about how I’ve been a professional and he needs more time for me, people don’t wanna hear that. I definitely don’t wanna hear it, and it just shows a sign of weakness.”

Anthony Joshua will face Carlos Takam (35-3-1, 27 KOs) defending his IBF title this weekend at the Principality Stadium in Wales, while Deontay Wilder will defend his title in a rematch with Haiti’s Bermane Stiverne (25-2-1, 21 KOs) at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.
