Wilder has placed his whole focus on Tyson Fury (26-0, 19 KOs), who fights on Saturday night in Belfast against Franesco Pianeta.Should Fury win the contest-then it’s most likely that he’ll face Wilder in the fall. Wilder is taking a trip to Belfast and plans to be ringside for the fight.According to Wilder, he feels Joshua has actually damaged his name in the United States by not completing a deal to eliminate him in the fall.The 2 sides were unable to reach an arrangement -and now Joshua is facing mandatory challenger Alexader Povetkin on September 22nd at Wembley in London.”These guys have lied about so much, about so much things it’s insane,”Wilder stated.
“They also stated that Joshua signed the agreement. When [Joshua’s promoter] Eddie [Hearn] sent out the kind, Joshua’s name was not signed on the agreement. It was Eddie Hearn’s name signed on the contract. You know guy, at this moment we’re made with the circumstance, we’re satisfied at where we’re at, all of our focus is on Tyson Fury today. We’re not believing about Joshua no more. “He harmed his name in America and the people are getting up over there in the UK too. Everybody understands who aimed to make the battle, who actually wished to combat. A blind guy could see the situation with this, and we’re done with it. My primary focus in on Tyson Fury.” When it comes to Fury, Wilder expects a difficult contest-but he likewise expect to stops Fury by the midway point of the battle.”Fury can be a problem for anyone
, he’s tall, he’s rangy and he’s uncomfortable,”Wilder stated.” I really see this Fury fight going to the mid-rounds
, I do not see it going the range. It’s certainly going to be a knockout, that’s what I do. I think it’s going to be fantastic fight. He’s going to come in shape. He’s still the undefeated lineal champion and we’re treating him like that. I’m taking him extremely seriously, I’m taking my camp really seriously.”Tags: Anthony Joshua Deontay Wilder vs. Fury Tyson Fury
