Speaking to October Red Youtube channel, Wilder’s trainer, Malik Scott, has revealed his man’s reaction to the stoppage:
He said, “He [Wilder] was like ‘we needed that’.
We both said the same thing because at first it was looking like it was getting ready to go the distance so when the knockout came I called him on FaceTime and he was like “I’m glad he got that, we needed it done just like that”.
So we’re both satisfied, the fight is bigger to me than it was because of the knockout, so shoutout to AJ to going out there and getting the job done.
Joshua and Wilder could collide in a huge heavyweight showdown in January according to Eddie Hearn. And going off recent performances you would have to make the hard-hitting American the favourite to take the win.
