Deontay Wilder appeared on a recent edition of The Joe Rogan Experience podcast and explained his thoughts on Anthony Joshua’s current situation.
Speaking to the famed UFC colour-commentator on a recent edition of The Joe Rogan Experience podcast, Wilder spoke to Rogan about a range of topics including his history, his instant-class with Tyson Fury and in one notable segment – his thoughts on the British champ Anthony Joshua.
Rogan first gave his view on the current status of Joshua after him being left out to a certain extent as Wilder and Fury earned the praises of the boxing world earlier this month.
“It’s going to be incredible. And it puts Anthony Joshua in a terrible situation. Terrible. He looks awful. Terrible.
“He’s going to fight some guy and no one gives a f**k. It’s like whatever titles you’ve got, they’re bulls**t.
“Everybody knows this is where the real title is. It’s a wrap now.”
With the rematch between Wilder and Fury now seemingly an inevitability, Joshua will no doubt be left to one side for at least a few months – something his team have apparently tried to remedy by pushing for a fight with ‘The Bronze Bomber’.
Wilder then went on to explain how the team of Anthony Joshua have all of a sudden started to express direct interest in taking a fight with him on the back of the reaction to his showdown with Fury earlier this month.
“They’re definitely begging now. His management have been trying to reach out to mine all of a sudden,”
“He could have had this opportunity, he had many opportunities; he could have fought Luis Ortiz, he could have fought me, he had a chance to fight [Tyson] Fury.
“But people want to know who’s the best, especially after seeing this Fury fight, and I’ve been trying to show people who is the best. I’m always going to say I’m the best until I’m defeated.”
