Anthony Joshua to Deontay Wilder: Why wait? – You're starving the fans!

Anthony Joshua says Deontay Wilder’s decision to focus on a heavyweight rematch with Tyson Fury is only going to hurt the fight fans.

The British puncher, who faces Andy Ruiz Jr. on June 1st, was hoping to negotiate a December deal with his main divisional adversary.

Wilder has admitted he wants to seek out Fury for a second meeting, possibly for the back end of 2019 or early 2020, leaving Joshua in no man’s land.

With a massive undisputed unification at stake, Joshua has urged Wilder to come to the table in order to secure a huge contest for the 200 pounds plus weight class.

“Wilder is just starving the fans from an undisputed heavyweight championship fight,” Joshua told Sporting News.

A three-pronged round robin of match-ups would be the ideal outcome, potentially with the Wilder v Fury II winner facing Joshua next.
