Joshua: Klitschko Made Our Deal Like True Pro, Unlike Wilder

WBA, IBO, IBF heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua (20-0, 20 KOs) is not impressed by the antics of WBC champion Deontay Wilder (39-0, 38 KOs), who is using social media and other online methods to chase down a unification showdown.

Joshua became the man to beat back in April, after getting off the floor to stop Wladimir Klitschko in the eleventh round before a massive crowd of 90,000 fans at Wembley in London.

He came back to action late last month, before 78,000 in Cardiff, to stop mandatory challenger Carlos Takam in the tenth round.

Joshua says he has no respect for fighters like Wilder, who are all over social media calling him out.

When he made his deal with Klitschko for their April encounter, he says neither one of them were using social media to create drama or call each other, and the entire deal was made behind closed doors.

“When I fought Klitschko he wasn’t on social media saying ‘I want to fight Anthony’, we worked on it behind closed doors, got a deal done and then announced it to the public. That’s how a true professional does business," Joshua told Gulf News.

“With the new era of boxing and what I haven’t got respect for is athletes like that. Fights can happen and I’ve been taking these fights since my 15th contest. 2018 is just around the corner and I hope a lot of people’s dreams come true with fights becoming a reality. I just hope we can make things happen. If not, my boxing still kind of moves forward and fights will happen, it’s just a case of when.”

Wilder saw action last weekend, at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, when he sensationally knocked out Bermane Stiverne in the first round of their mandatory rematch.

He now wants to get his hands on Joshua and hopes their contest can happen sooner than later.
