Anthony Joshua calls out Deontay Wilder and congratulates Tyson Fury

Anthony Joshua says Deontay Wilder has changed his tune in the wake of the Tyson Fury fight.

Heading into Saturday night’s boxing match between Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder, most of the boxing punditry predicted an easy win for Wilder — heavyweight boxing champion Anthony Joshua included.

Coming out of the 12 round epic, Fury silenced those doubters, rising to the occasion in just his third fight back after a two year stint of boozing and drug taking. In the immediate aftermath, there’s been numerous angles pushed by the public.

Naturally, a rematch between Fury and Wilder has been proposed, with the controversial nature of their draw — as well as a long discussed fight between Wilder and Joshua. Certainly, it’s the latter that Joshua is targeting, as today he took to his social media to respond to a story that hinted Wilder was more interested in that bout than a Fury rematch.

“What took this fool so long? Like we ain’t been interested?!! 🙄” Joshua posted. “Anyway well done Fury! they wanted to get you because they assumed you was finished!! I’ll give you a fair one when your ready! Either one of you!”

It’s believed Joshua’s promoter Eddie Hearn is set to engage in talks with Wilder’s team next week.
