Joshua: I'd Rather Talk Trash "Face To Face" With Wilder, Fury

For several months, Tyson Fury and WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder have been dropping verbal bombs on IBF, IBO, WBA, WBO heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua.

Joshua has rarely fired back any statements in return.

According to the British superstar, he would rather do the trash talking in a face to face manner with both boxers.


Joshua was in action last month, when he won a twelve round unanimous decision over Joseph Parker to unify his four heavyweight belts at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff, Wales.

"When you're a fighter you can't let certain things slide," Joshua said about his rivals' trash talk to Sky Sports.

"Sometimes you use it as fuel but, at the same time, when you're hearing it constantly you have to let it slide off your back. It's hard, though. It's a balance because, even though I try to keep it professional and I don't want to bite back, I've got that fight instinct. Sometimes you need to give as good as you get.

"I'd rather do it face-to-face. That's what I'm waiting for. That's what I've always said. Even though Fury went through what he went through, I hoped for his return so he can fight soon. Wilder - we're looking at negotiations to see whether we can get that going. There's a lot of talk across the pond but it will be good when we come face-to-face."

Wilder was also in action last month, when he retained his title with a tenth round knockout of Luis Ortiz at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

Joshua and Wilder are currently in talks for a potential unification at a later point in the year. Most insiders do not expect that contest to happen next.

Fury, who has been inactive since November of 2015, recently announced his ring return for early June in Manchester, but no opponent has been finalized as of yet.
