Deontay Wilder: Not Only Do I Beat Joshua - I'll Knock Him Out!

WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder (40-0, 39 KOs) is very confident that he will end the unbeaten run of Anthony Joshua (20-0, 20 KOs) in style.

Last Saturday night at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, Wilder retained his title with a stunning tenth round knockout of Luis Ortiz.

Wilder was in serious trouble in the seventh round, but rallied to drop Ortiz twice in the tenth for the stoppage win. Ortiz had also been down in the fifth round.


Wilder is now planning to be ringside for the Joshua's upcoming defense of his IBF, IBO, WBA world titles.

Joshua will stake his three titles in a high profile unification with WBO heavyweight champion Joseph Parker (24-0, 18 KOs) on March 31 in Cardiff, Wales.

Wilder is giving Parker a good shot to pull off the upset - but he admits that his fingers are crossed for Joshua to pull through with a victory - which in turn would set the stage for a major unification in the fall.

“I’m going to take the baddest man in the division! It’s just like going to prison when you want to find the toughest man in there to show to get him to go at you. You got to let him know in the prison – I come in peace," Wilder told Talk Sport.

“But, if you break this peace, I will show you when I come in the division and get the toughest man in the division. And not only do I win, but I knock him out. This is the fight, the biggest fight of our lives, the biggest fight of this history! It’s going to happen, all they got to do is make the fight.”

“It’s short and simple. Good luck on March 31, hope you prevail. Let’s give the world what they have been waiting for. Let’s give the world an epic fight, one that’s going to be in the history books for years and years to come. One that the next generation, and the next generation will be talking about because it was just that great."
