The WBC champion didn't hold back when his giving views on Joshua. He branded the former world champion a quitter in a brutal rant.

"The most thing I'm upset about is he quit! He quit! When I'm in the ring, I don't mean good for nobody. You're going to have to kill me in the ring. He ain't been talking. His promoter [Eddie Hearn] has been talking. He can't fight for him," he said.

The Matchroom promoter has since responded to Wilder's attack while saying he should have a picture of Joshua hanging in his lounge.

"Wilder's spent his whole career using Joshua's name to build his own profile and he's still doing it," said Hearn.

"Imagine a promoter talking up his own fighter? I've over sold Anthony Joshua - the guy who won Olympic gold, won a world title in his 16th fight, fought Wladimir Klitschko at Wembley in front of 90,000 in one of the biggest fights of all time.

"Beat Dillian Whyte, beat Carlos Takam, unified at the Millennium Stadium in front of 80,000 people against Joseph Parker, defended his world titles against his mandatory Alexander Povetkin in front of 80,000 people at Wembley. How can you not over sell someone like that?

"Anthony Joshua has single-handedly changed the face of boxing worldwide and people like Deontay Wilder should have a picture of Anthony Joshua up in his lounge that he walks past every day and says 'thank you very much for making me very wealthy."
