'I'll Eat him' - Anthony Joshua Fires Back at Wilder

'I'll Eat him' - Anthony Joshua Fires Back at Wilder”

The 6-foot-6 Joshua (20-0, 20 KOs) scored a 10-round TKO victory over Carlos Takam two weeks ago, setting up a collision course with Wilder in a mega heavyweight unification match.

In what was a rematch of the first fight where Wilder won the title, the "Bronze Bomber" knocked Stiverne down three times before the referee called an end to the fight in the first round on Saturday (4 November).

"Obviously if he got through that, then that makes for a big fight with Joshua. When I beat [you, ] I'm not looking for a [rematch] because it's going to be so brutal the first time he'll say, 'enough.' It's going to be, 'No Mas, '" said Wilder, standing at a podium in a knee-length Chinchilla fur coat during the post-fight press conference. "Don't you see? I am the most feared". I want somebody to prove that to me. "Is you up for the test?"

"They are trying to give me a peasant in [Dillian] Whyte but I want the king Joshua". A king takes kings. He wants England's Anthony Joshua, the WBA/IBF champ, sometime next year, and was busy issuing challenges after disposing of Stiverne. "I just want to prove that I am the best".

Spencer Oliver is keen to see Wilder take on Joshua straight away though. No more dodging, no more excuses.

Wilder against Joshua has been billed as the ultimate test of each fighter's mettle. This time, Stiverne was ready to step into Ortiz's place, however, and Wilder will get his second bout of the year (and second bout since tearing his biceps and breaking his hand against Chris Arreola).

The home of English rugby is a realistic option, according to Eddie Hearn, who promotes the WBA and IBF heavyweight champion.

"I was really interested to see the weight of Deontay Wilder on the scales [220 pounds].I texted that to Anthony today", he told Sky Sports. I could literally quote his response, but it was something like "I will eat him". It's two-and-a-half stone now between those two. We know they want big fights for him, as we do for Deontay. The man, who was sitting in ringside, Tyson fury is also in the plans for next year.

"I had a text from his promoter tonight, asking if we fancy making that fight next". Anthony Joshua's just sold 175,000 seats in his last two fights.
