50 Cent, Wilder Unite To Send Message To Mayweather, Joshua

RAPPER 50 Cent responded to Floyd Mayweather’s claims that he would help Anthony Joshua improve his defensive technique with a video response alongside Deontay Wilder.

Wilder, the current WBC heavyweight champion, is rumoured to be on the shortlist of potential candidates to face Joshua next if Wladimir Klitschko opts against a rematch of their stunning battle at Wembley Stadium last month.

The Bronze Bomber is also unbeaten in his 38-fight career, with 37 knockouts to date, making an explosive unification showdown with fellow KO king Joshua a mouth-watering prospect.

And the 31-year-old clearly fancies his chances of an upset, teaming up with 50 Cent to send a cheeky message to Joshua intended to rile him up.

Watford born Joshua appeared at a meet-and-greet in London this week alongside undefeated superstar Floyd Mayweather – with the latter taking time to offer the 18-0 IBF, WBA and IBO champion some words of advice.

"He showed that he had heart [against Klitschko] but we have to bring him up to the Mayweather Boxing Club as we want to tighten that defence up until it's real, real sharp and real, real slick,” Pretty Boy Floyd said.

"I'm not trying to move his trainers out the way but there's things we want to tweak.

"Joshua's last fight went 11 rounds but really it could have gone three. He came out and the fight was going his way but then the fight shifted and I thought, 'oh s**t!' But this m****r f****r got some dog in him.

"After that fight he was praising his trainers but I gotta praise [him] as it was [Joshua] in there fighting. When he was knocked down on the floor, he got up and he kept fighting."

In response, 50 posted a clip ranting: “He’s talking about gonna be teaching Joshua some defence.

“I ain’t even gotta teach the champ [Wilder] no defence.

“You better get that n***** a gun.”

Last year, promoter Eddie Hearn confirmed it was likely that Joshua would fight abroad, possibly in 2017.

“I hope that one of the fights in 2017 will be in America, whether it’s against Deontay Wilder or another US opponent,” he said.
