Joshua Claims He Wants A Face To Face With Wilder And Fury
Anthony Joshua has taken his fair share of barbs from both Tuson Fury and Deontay Wilder the past few months, and now the man one title away from being undisputed heavyweight champion has had enough.
“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.”
When asked if he would consider the same kind of social media tactics played by Wilder and Fury, Joshua claimed he wants to be more personal in his approach. “I’d rather do it face-to-face. That’s what I’m waiting for,” said Joshua.
“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.”
