Deontay Wilder sets sights on Anthony Joshua fight – and it could happen sooner than you think

Posted by

Deontay Wilder has revealed that he wants to fight Anthony Joshua next.

Wilder returned to the ring in emphatic fashion, knocking out Robert Helenius and sending a warning to the rest of the heavyweight division.

He now appears to have turned his attention towards one of the division’s biggest names, one whose stock has taken a serious hit over the past two years.

Wilder has expressed a desire to take on former unified heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua – and he wants the blockbuster to be his next fight.

This is a fight that could have come to fruition while both men were reigning as the kings of the heavyweight division, but it never materialised.

They could now face off to determine who the third-best heavyweight on the planet is, behind current champs Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk.

The stakes are lower, but the intrigue remains. This is a fight that we’d absolutely love to see happen in 2023 – let’s keep an eye on things.
