I don’t care about Anthony Joshua – Wilder

World Boxing Council heavyweight champion, Deontay Wilder, said he is focused on beating Tyson Fury in his next bout and he has no business with Anthony Joshua.

Wilder insists his status as a world-class heavyweight has nothing to do with his rivalry with Anthony Joshua and that

The pair were primed for heavyweight division bout but negotiations broke down again earlier this month over a potential unification bout.

Joshua says he wants to face Wilder if the unbeaten American successfully defends his WBC belt against Tyson Fury on December 1, but the ‘Bronze Bomber’ insists he is not paying attention to the Briton’s comments.

In an interview with Fox News:

Wilder said “I haven’t seen any videos or anything like that. Whatever the guys are doing, let them do it,”
 

“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.”

Wilder insists his only focus is on beating Fury, who has fought just twice since returning to boxing in 2018 after a two-and-a-half year absence, which included a two-year ban from UK Anti-Doping.
