Deontay Wilder thinks Anthony Joshua was scared of a confrontation with Andy Ruiz Jr. last Saturday night in Saudi Arabia.
The “Wladimir Klitschko style” he used to beat Ruiz was boring with his holding and running for 12 rounds, thinks “Bronze Bomber”.
“I don’t want to see the Klitschko style. It was boring,” said Wilder to BSOTV about Joshua’s performance against Ruiz. “That’s what he was doing in doing enough to get by, but the thing about it is, you got a six inch height advantage, and you got an eight inch reach advantage.”
“Why is you running from the smaller guy? You’re punching, holding and grabbing like you’re afraid of a confrontation. He didn’t want no engagement. He was just scared,” said Wilder.
“If he was in there with Deontay Wilder, I would have come in there and demolished him,” said Wilder about Joshua.
