Wilder calls out 'coward' Joshua before clash with Fury

Deontay Wilder remains eager to fight Anthony Joshua

Deontay Wilder remains eager to fight Anthony Joshua

When Fury held the WBA and WBO titles, he confronted Wilder in the ring after one of the American's title defences but it has taken almost three years for the fight to be made because of Fury's prolonged absence from the ring, during which he put on eight stone.

Deontay Wilder: I'm all about devastating knockouts.

This has infuriated Wilder and he did not hold back in his rant, telling Joshua exactly what he thought of him.

Fury said: "I am no challenger for no man, I am the lineal heavyweight champion of the world".

A potential bout between Joshua and Wilder seemed to be edging closer earlier this year with their respective teams locked in talks, but Joshua opted for mandatory challenger Alexander Povetkin, who he beat with a seventh-round stoppage.

Two months before they step into the ring for their world heavyweight title fight in Los Angeles, Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury went head-to-head in a verbal sparring match in London. "I want to feel the punching power".

The victor of the Wilder-Fury fight could face Anthony Joshua at Wembley Stadium in London next April.

"When I say I'll knock a man out it comes to pass".

Tyson Fury branded heavyweight rival Deontay Wilder a "little b****" as the pair's press conference ahead of their December showdown boiled over in London on Monday. Therefore, Joshua's choice to avoid the American once more has led many to suggest that he is following a set career plan, something Wilder has become increasingly frustrated with. I'm ready, you're banking on me having two fights in three years. A sport where two people with a pantomime dislike for each other can sit across the same table from each other and complain about how they're going to knock the other one's head off. I feel 10 of you. "We didn't pick to fight you, or you to fight us, because we thought you were easy". I can't lose this fight. I could've fought another ten bums if I wanted to. No matter who you bring, I'll take them out.

But as for Fury's chances, Finkel said: "When I was handling Klitschko, I didn't think he had a chance. He's not going to prove me wrong twice".
