Anthony Joshua Drops A Cheeky Swipe At Deontay Wilder After Tyson Fury Defeat

Anthony Joshua Drops A Cheeky Swipe At Deontay Wilder After Tyson Fury Defeat

Anthony Joshua has reignited his intense rivalry with Deontay Wilder by branding him a 'b***h' after his defeat to Tyson Fury.

Wilder, 34, was outclassed and dominated by Brit superstar Fury in their February rematch as he was stopped in the seventh round in Las Vegas.

And Joshua, who regained his championship crown last December, was once heavily linked for a unification clash with Wilder.

'AJ,' 30, admitted that there was a temptation to enter into full-on trash-talking mode after Fury stripped Wilder of the WBC championship.

The Brit superstar has now taken a cheeky swipe at Wilder, but has reiterated that he and the 'Bronze Bomber' are "cut from a different cloth."

Joshua told SI Boxing with Chris Mannix: "Oh yeah, oh yeah. I went into my drawer and pulled out my long list of things to say, I've got a lot of things to say about Wilder.

"But for sure, I think me and Wilder, as I say, are cut from a different cloth. He's what we call... it begins with a 'b' and ends with a 'h.'

"I'm not like that, I'm more of a man. I don't really get on the internet talking crap. The only times you've seen me talking recklessly is against Dillian Whyte and Jarrell Miller.

"Other than that, I'm an ambassador of the sport. I'm trying to be clean, representing my sponsorships, represent DAZN properly, I try to stay away from the typical stereotype of a heavyweight boxer.

"It's difficult, but I have it in me to fire up and talk recklessly when needed."

Wilder has revealed plans to trigger his rematch clause and complete a trilogy of fights with fierce rival Fury.
