Joshua Tells Wilder To Be Realistic

Anthony Joshua is imploring potential opponent, Deontay Wilder needs to be “realistic” with what he wants from a heavyweight unification fight.

Joshua is still hoping to line up a fight with the WBC world heavyweight champion, but may end up facing WBA mandatory challenger Alexander Povetkin.

In a conversation with Sky Sports, Joshua told reporters he’s not growing impatient, but believes the benefits are there for all parties in this deal.

“It’s not frustrated, it’s just I’ve spoken about it, I’ve said my piece,” Joshua told Sky Sports.

When asked about if there’s a deadline, Joshua claimed, “No, I’m still training, but in terms of a three-month camp, we’ve got until the end of the month, but there’s still a few more weeks. It’s just the nitty gritty I think.

“Everyone has seen the gold at the end of the rainbow, and everyone wants a piece. It’s not a problem, there’s enough in the pot for everyone to eat, but just be realistic and that’s all it is.”

“There’s so many out there for me to box and I’ve been doing it back-to-back, so it’s no problem,” he said.

“Then when I beat Wilder, the next question is – when are you going to fight Fury? The questions will never stop, and I just keep on knocking them down.”
