WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder is not impressed with Anthony Joshua’s biggest accomplishment –an eleventh round stoppage of Wladimir Klitschko in April of 2017.
While the win was impressive, there were some critics who felt the victory was tarnished with the fact that Klitschko was already 40-years-old, inactive since November 2015 – and coming off a twelve round decision loss to Tyson Fury.
Wilder is facing Fury this coming fall.
The win over Klitschko, which saw 90,000 fans pack Wembley in London, made Joshua a superstar.
Wilder was in talks to face Joshua this fall, but their negotiations fell apart and now Joshua is facing Alexander Povetkin on September 22 at Wembley.
But Wilder credits Fury with making a deal with him in very easy fashion.
