Anthony Joshua Still Dodging Deontay Wilder With Excuses

Anthony Joshua Still Dodging Deontay Wilder With Excuses


It's been almost halve a year now and this two, the WBC Champion and the IBF, IBO WBA Heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua (20-0, 20 KOs) haven't still yet reached an agreement for the fight that will certainly lead to unification of the Heavyweight division.

Deontay Wilder (39-0, 38 KOs) looks to be more ready for the fight than Anthony Joshua, say what you really want to say but it seems Anthony Joshua is really not ready to fight the wild WBC Champion yet, though slated to face the big Cuban puncher Luis Ortiz on March third, he still really wants to face Joshua.

However, Anthony Joshua prefers facing a much mild, less fierce and more probably beatable WBO Champion Joseph Parker, whose last fight was a decision victory over Hughie Fury, claiming he is more realistic than Wilder.

Deontay Wilder has not spoken much about Luis Ortiz, meaning, you can see he doesn't see him as competition but has been up again speaking of the ever ducking Anthony Joshua. Here is what he had to say.

"We’re not going to be looking like we’re chasing. When you’re talking about the best fighting the best, champion fighting champion, it shouldn’t be like a circus. Let’s make this fight happen, no matter what the terms are. It ain’t like I ain’t done nothing. I’m the longest reigning (heavyweight) champion in the game, so put some respek on the name," Wilder told The Guardian.

“But they know I’m a risk. They don’t want to risk their gravy train. They can make money off turds not doing nothing. What does that tell you? You’re really just running it as a business. You ain’t no champion. In that case give up the belt and you can still do that. Give me the belts. Or fight.”

Where I come from, if you really sure you are good, you don't let noise makers Tarnish the big name you have already created. I believe Joshua should be tired of the noise by now as I am, everyone wants to see a Joshua-Wilder fight not Joshua-Parker, so Just Make It Happen Anthony Joshua
