💣 Deontay Wilder backed to knock Anthony Joshua out

Posted by

Hall of Fame trainer, Teddy Atlas, is backing Deontay Wilder to defeat Anthony Joshua by knock-out.

The former champions could collide in Saudi in December although, Joshua, may face Dillian Whyte in August.

And Teddy Atlas has shared his thoughts on the potential fight.

Speaking on his podcast he explained:

“If I was backing (Joshua), I don’t know if I’d want to put him in with Wilder to be quite frank. With the kind of right hand Wilder chucks and the susceptibility (Joshua) has to getting hit with the right hand.

“It’s not a knock on him, but I think Wilder would knock him out.

“Joshua’s vulnerability for the right hand is one of the reasons (I think Wilder wins). Besides, the fact he’s made so much money. He doesn’t need to do this, that (with his money) you never (need) to see him with Wilder ever.”

Do you agree with Atlas? Let us know in the comments.
