I’m Not Interested In Wilder’s “Hype” – Anthony Joshua


Anthony Joshua, has warned Deontay Wilder that he is only interested in signed fights and not “hype”.

Joshua is preparing for his unification clash with WBO title holder Joseph Parker on March 31, as he can move one belt away from becoming undisputed champion.

Wilder who is WBC king, will be watching from ringside as part of the Sky Sports team, but Joshua says the American should think twice about stepping between the ropes if he defeats the New Zealander in Cardiff.

“He’s been at my [Wladimir] Klitschko fight and I’ve watched him in Sheffield when he fought Audley Harrison.

“He’s flying over to come and watch me fight Joseph Parker, and this is what it’s about – it’s building up to that big clash.

“I’m a unified heavyweight champion. We’re talking about undisputed heavyweight champion, and that’s what we’re building towards.

“Yes, he’s more than welcome, but the difference is – when Klitschko come over to watch me in Manchester, we had signed a deal. It was signed and sealed, provided I won.

“With Wilder, I’m just not into the hype. If he wants to come over, get in the ring and all that stuff – I just prefer it if he had a fight in place to talk about, because if not, it’s just hype,” Joshua told Sky Sports.
