Anthony Joshua and Oleksandr Usyk are both ‘terrified’ to share the ring with Deontay Wilder it’s been claimed.
Joshua is currently in talks for a January showdown with Deontay Wilder although his promoter, Eddie Hearn, has admitted talks have been slow.
But Tyson Fury’s dad John, doesn’t believe either Joshua or Usyk truly want to face the hard-hitting American, Deontay Wilder.
Speaking about Wilder to Freebets, Gypsy John said:
“They’re all terrified of him.
“Tyson straightened him out three times.
“All those people will never get in with The Bronze Bomber. Usyk, AJ, none of them will fight The Bronze Bomber.”
Meanwhile the WBC heavyweight king, Tyson Fury faces the former UFC heavyweight champion Francis Ngannou on October 28th in Saudi Arabia.
