Deontay Wilder (38-0, 37 KOs) opened on IBF/WBA heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua with both barrels in criticizing him for saying he’s not sure if he’s ready to face him now. Wilder took that to mean that the 27-year-old Joshua is getting cold feet about wanting to fight him.
Wilder, 31, says Joshua is talking about not wanting to fight him until 2010. Wilder sees that as a ploy to try and wait him out until he gets old before he faces him in 3 years from now. Wilder says he won’t be old anytime soon. Wilder says isn’t sure if Joshua is scared or using performance enhancing drugs.
