Unified world heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua believe Deontay Wilder is a great asset to the heavyweight division and he hopes the American makes a comeback.
Wilder was last seen in February when he got owned by Tyson Fury in a WBC heavyweight championship fight that took place in Las Vegas. Wilder, 34, exercised his rematch clause for a trilogy fight with Fury, but it seems a third bout won’t be happening anytime soon.
Now an All-Britain mega fight between Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury is the boxing’s agenda, but that won’t be happening in the next 5-6 months at least.
However, Joshua thinks that Wilder must comeback under the bright light.
“I don’t know, so I can’t speak on everyone’s situation, but just from my humble opinion, after a loss, things change,” AJ said. “You distance yourself. The world is cruel. You’ve got to have a thick skin. Either he’s putting together a master plan – he’s in the lab right now, with his science glasses on, studying Fury’s every move. Or he’s sitting at that lake, with his head in his hands and thinking, ‘What’s going on?’ One minute you’re on top of the world, and the next minute you’re not. That’s the name of the game we’re in.”
Just a year ago a potential Joshua – Wilde fight was the biggest event in the world of boxing, but the re-birth of Tyson Fury made this super-clash go away. At least for now.
