Wilder Not Listening To Joshua Prior To Fury Fight
While Deontay Wilder’s spotlight has been a bit brighter since his very public negotiations with Anthony Joshua, the WBC world heavyweight champion refuses to focus on Joshua prior to his December 1st fight with Tyson Fury.
“I haven’t seen any videos or anything like that. Whatever them guys are doing, let them do it,” said Wilder.
“We’re not focused on them, we’re not even concerned about them. When was the last time we even said anything about them?
“I don’t need him to bring status to me. My status came to me because I knock people out, not because of another man.”
“He was the one to obtain all the belts, he was the one that beat Klitschko, he is the man that beat the man,” said Wilder said of Tyson Fury, who he faces on December 1st at Staples Center.
“We’re looking at him as that. He may not have all the titles, but he is still considered the lineal champion of the world.
“If he wasn’t fighting me people wouldn’t be talking about if he needs another warm-up, if he’s ready and stuff like that. People are hesitant and want to complain because it’s me.”
