Deontay Wilder rips Anthony Joshua, promoter, says camp 'fears' him

"He would have been calling Wilder's name out".

"He can't take a punch, or I'm too fast, or he's too slow". How bad do you think he wants the fight if he don't come? It didn't happen. It landed, he put Joshua down.

DEONTAY WILDER cancelled his plans to square up to Anthony Joshua after being told he would not be allowed in the ring with him.

Speaking to iFL TV earlier this week, Hearn criticised Wilder for rejecting the gilt-edged opportunity to hype up potential clashes with Joshua and Dillian Whyte.

Haye touches on everything.

"Wilder should understand that if he fights Whyte now, he'll get a rematch clause".

"I'm not making the trip now".

The comments drew heavy criticism after the recent death of Scott Westgarth on February 25, one day after he defeated Dec Spelman in a 10-round fight.

"And I said I couldn't come if it wasn't possible".

These statements will have some very real, disturbing legal implications next time Wilder turns an opponent's skull into oatmeal, but there's no denying boxing needs a Drago-like villain right now.

If we're being honest, Wilder didn't look great against Luis Ortiz and was bettered in six of the nine completed rounds. "It makes sense for Wilder to box him now".

"Eddie Hearn's always talking about me being the only one to raise my profile".

"He walked into the ring but he said when he was on that stage and it was going up and down, he was just looking around and all you can see is like 80,000 camera phone lights". If Wilder can't win, Whyte would fight Joshua in an undisputed title fight. "Me and Parker are a little bit closer and that will make it more easier to come to negotiations if he wins that fight".

But as he continues to tackle bigger and better arenas - having sold 250,000 tickets for his last three fights - Joshua is becoming accustomed to being such an in-demand star.

Hearn said Joshua would have no problem inviting Wilder into the ring - so long as he beats Joseph Parker.

He has shown no enthusiasm to fight Whyte and outraged boxing fans this week by changing his mind about working for Sky Sports at Joshua v Parker.

"He fears me. He's scared of losing and he's stated many times that he fears losing. One minute you're the man, and the next you're not".

Fighters motivated by the fear of losing all that they've acquired monetarily, and in status, are unsafe. I believe Joshua wants to take away the play that Wilder has realized over the past four weeks. They proved it. They showed they don't want this fight. The board won't let anyone into the ring after the fight to do interviews. So for the time being we'll give him the benefit the doubt. And if Joshua destroys Parker in a one-sided fight, he'll have returned serve back to Wilder and it might even become hard once again to find those willing to stick their neck out predicting Wilder will beat Joshua if and when they fight.
