Anthony Joshua: Wilder hasn’t been taught to box on his back foot

Anthony Joshua would bring the fight to Deontay Wilder – if the two of them ever met in the ring.

IBF, IBO, WBA and WBO heavyweight champion will be watching the fight between Wilder and Tyson Fury with a lot of interest, as he wants to face the winner.

“In terms of doing something similar, I wouldn’t have done what he (Fury) done in the first fight,” said Joshua to Sky Sports.

“Maybe I would have probably taken it to Deontay Wilder a bit more, because I don’t think Deontay Wilder has been taught to box on his back foot.

“He doesn’t know how to flow and move side to side, and move back and control the fighter. When Tyson Fury was edging forward, on back foot balance, Deontay Wilder was struggling to move forward with his right hand.

“It proved to be a very difficult fight for Deontay Wilder in the end.”

Joshua has studied Wilder enough that he believes the right strategy to get the win would be to come forward and punch.
