David Price: I Think Deontay Wilder Could Beat Anthony Joshua

Olympic bronze medal winner David Price could certainly see WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder (39-0, 38 KOs) beating out Anthony Joshua (20-0, 20 KOs) - if they ever step in the ring against each other.

Both Joshua and Wilder are scheduled for big fights in the month of March.

Wilder will defend against Luis Ortiz on March 3rd at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, while Joshua will stake his IBF, IBO, WBA world titles in a unification with WBO champion Joseph Parker on March 31 at Principality Stadium in Cardiff, Wales.


Price, who badly dropped Joshua during a sparring session which took place several years ago, appears to give Wilder the edge when break down the highly anticipated heavyweight clash.

"I think Deontay Wilder could beat him, simply because he's got a little bit more of an unpredictable side to him as far as his boxing is concerned. Joshua is more well-schooled, with a hands up defence. But Wilder is massively wild and his speed at long-range could beat Joshua to the punch. I would have them level and obviously Tyson Fury," Price told Sky Sports.

Price Joshua a lot of credit for lifting the sport in the UK - with frenzy type atmospheres being created when the British superstar fights in the ring.

Last year, a crowd of 90,000 hit Wembley to watch Joshua get off the floor to stop Wladimir Klitschko in April. And then in November, a crowd of 78,000 came out to watch Joshua score a stoppage victory over mandatory challenger Carlos Takam at Principality.

"It's fallen nicely for him, but he's taken it all on and transformed the sport. This type of mania you see when he's fighting, we probably won't see it again in our lifetime. I went to that fight at Cardiff and it was like when I went to the FA Cup final there with Liverpool. It was just madness and one person generated that," Price said.

[QUOTE=sotgoda;18425544]Wilder will beat AJ when they both meet just like Errol Spence will beat Thurman when they meet. Keep hearing AJ's delusional fans say he will just fight on the inside and beat Wilder. How? He needs to get past…

True.....Wilder has the more artistic pugilistic artillary while Joshua has standard powerhouse fueled fundamentals. Will it turn out like when an unorthodox Hamed finally met up with a sound funamental Barrerra, or will it turn out like an unorthodox Mayweather…
