Anthony Joshua Fires Back At Deontay Wilder: I’m Not One Of The Tomato Cans You Knocked Out

If it wasn’t clear enough, Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder still don’t like each other.

Although Wilder is set to fight Tyson Fury for the WBC heavyweight title in a trilogy fight on July 24, that didn’t stop the American from taking recent shots at old rival Joshua.

Earlier this month, Wilder said the following:

“My focus is definitely on Fury… Once I do that [and beat him], then you already know what [Joshua] I want,” Wilder said. “But, from what I’m hearing, they’re already making up their excuses. You know we’re going to hear about mandatory [fights] and all that other bullsh-t.

“But I want them to keep the same energy – they tried to make the Fury fight. He said, ‘It ain’t about the man, it’s about the person with the belts,’ right? We’re going to hold their word to that.”

Wilder only continued with the shots while speaking to media recently to which Joshua — who takes on Oleksandr Usyk meanwhile — finally responded:

“I’m an elite level fighter, not one of the tomato cans he’s knocked out,” Joshua told Sky Sports (via Michael Benson). “He better watch what he’s saying because when the day comes for me and him, I know what I’m capable of doing… He ain’t an elite level fighter.

“I’ve never seen a fighter going to war with one weapon – his right hand. Top level, that doesn’t work. As we’ve seen now, he struggles at top level and there’s a lot more of us waiting for that opportunity to kick his arse.”

Wilder will undoubtedly have a response sooner or later.
