Anthony Joshua Pinpoints The Reason Why The Deontay Wilder Clash Hasn’t Happened

Anthony Joshua Pinpoints The Reason Why The Deontay Wilder Clash Hasn’t Happened

Anthony Joshua has argued that a mega-unification bout with fierce rival Deontay Wilder hasn't moved ahead due to the location for the fight.

The 30-year-old Brit superstar recaptured his world heavyweight titles this month as he outboxed Andy Ruiz Jr in Diriyah, Saudi Arabia.

And 'AJ' has voiced his desire to rekindle a unification bout with WBC champ Wilder in 2020.

Wilder, who is scheduled to rematch Tyson Fury on 22nd February, has been keen to hold the bout in the US.

Meanwhile, Joshua has wanted the blockbuster title fight to be held at Wembley in London.

Speaking to iFL TV, the two-time unified heavyweight champ insisted that it "makes sense" for the UK to host the unification bout over the States.

He explained: "[Put] 80,000 people [in a stadium] or an arena that can hold 15,000 elsewhere? It makes sense to have it here [in the UK].

"That's probably what's holding it up, we want it here.

"Obviously, there's broadcasters, but we have to look what makes sense for the division.

"Sometimes you've got to go across the pond to make it work."

The 'Bronze Bomber' has also slammed his rival's performance against Ruiz after adopting a Wladimir Klitschko-style approach for the clash.

However, 'AJ' has since hit back at Wilder's taunts and argued that he silenced his harshest critics with his performance against Ruiz.
