Deontay Wilder has bragged about being the “worst nightmare” to Anthony Joshua after the latter defeated Andy Ruiz over the weekend in Saudi Arabia.
The fight between Anthony Joshua and Andy Ruiz, saw Joshua win his belts back from Ruiz after he suffere a defeat to him in June.
Many boxing fans were impressed with how technical Joshua was although it made for a pretty boring fight. In a recent interview with TMZ, Deontay Wilder slammed Joshua for his fighting style and insinuated that it was actually quite cowardly.
“He didn’t want no engagement,” Wilder said. “He was just scared. You got a 6-inch height advantage, you got an 8-inch reach advantage. Why is you running from the smaller guy?”
Wilder went on to say that he would destroy Joshua in a potential fight and that he knows it wouldn’t be particularly close. These two have completely different styles and Wilder thinks his punching power will be too much to handle.
“He definitely don’t want me, for sure. I live in his dreams, I’m his worst nightmare,” Wilder said. “A lot of people read into [Joshua’s] bulls**t and we can understand and identify and we know it’s bulls**t coming out of his mouth. We just don’t have enough toilet paper to wipe it as it comes.”
