Anthony Joshua Trash Talks Deontay Wilder And Tyson Fury

Unified world heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua has some choice words for WBC champion Deontay Wilder and former world champion Tyson Fury.

Joshua told The Independent in an interview what he would do if he had fought both Wilder and Fury, showcasing a good amount of trash talking.

"Wilder? I'd knock Wilder out, it would take a bit of time but I'd definitely knock him out. Parker would take a bit more of a pasting but I'd get to him. Wilder, I'd knock him out with one shot. Not like I'd go in there and bang but when I catch Wilder, I'd definitely knock him out... Fury is tall and I think he's a bit of a nut-job to be honest with you. I think he's just got a bit of a screw loose. Any man with a screw loose even if it is just in business, they just have a little something that you can't put your finger on. So with Fury, it would be tricky to figure him out. And Fury would be a real breakdown job, a real gruesome-type fight. Kind of like that Klitschko fight – I'll go to hellfire and back to get the win."

Currently, Wilder and Fury are the two biggest names in the heavyweight division that are linked to a fight with Joshua at some point down the road. There had been rumors that Joshua vs. Wilder could take place next, but reports are now suggesting that fight could take place in the second half of 2018.

Despite a large amount of trash talking between both Wilder and Joshua's promoter Eddie Hearn in recent months, it now appears that Joshua's next fight could be against WBO heavyweight champion Joseph Parker in a unification fight. Parker recently retained his title with a win over Hughie Fury, Tyson's cousin.

Joshua also retained his title back in October with a TKO win over Carlos Takam in a fight that drew nearly 80,000 fans to Cardiff, Wales.
