Joshua calls out ‘fool’ Wilder and Fury

"I'll give you a fair one when your (sic) ready!"

Joshua has the IBF, WBA "super", WBO and IBO heavyweight belts that Wilder is seeking.

Fury's promoter, Frank Warren, however, hopes to open talks over Fury-Wilder II.

Joshua has a Wembley date booked for April against an opponent yet to be named, with lengthy public negotiations failing between he and Wilder previously.

"First we need to find out what is happening with a Wilder-Fury rematch and whether the rematch clause we are hearing about is what it seems".

Anthony Joshua labelled Deontay Wilder a "fool" and called out the American and Tyson Fury following the duo's contentious Los Angeles draw.

He added: "If everything is in the paper, I have no desire to discuss anything and let him go fight who he wants". As far as AJ is concerned, he will fight anyone.

"Listen 100 per cent we'll do the rematch, but we're going to go away, recalculate, see what's going to happen, get back together".

The daily further quoted a source, " Priyanka has a few ad campaigns lined up, which she needs to shoot for in the coming week". On the other hand, The Cut has changed a line from the post wherein it had asked Nick Jonas to run away from the wedding.

It now remains to be seen what direction Wilder goes in, with a rematch against Fury and the victor facing Joshua later in 2019 one possibility. "It is a fight we definitely want for April and will work hard to make".

Fury slammed the scoring of the Wilder fight, saying he'd "never seen a worse decision" in his life.

In front of a 17,698-strong attendance, both fighters entertained from the opening bell when they both threw threatening punches and Wilder landed a hurtful right as they briefly fought toe-to-toe.

Yet boxing fans aren't entirely convinced that Joshua genuinely wants to fight either of the two heavyweights, having seen a fight with Wilder already fall through. "Now, Fury's the people's champion".

Meanwhile, Fury limited Wilder to 71 connects (six per round) and Klitschko to 52 when he fought against him (four per round).

"Before we were looking at Deontay Wilder, Dillian Whyte or Dereck Chisora if he beats Whyte for April 13", Hearn said on Monday.

The 30-year-old Fury said: "Everybody said Ben couldn't do it and he'd fold under pressure".
