Deontay Wilder
World heavyweight champion, Deontay Wilder has warned Anthony Joshua that he will knock him out, according to TalkSport.
Wilder is now unbeaten in 40 fights after stopping Luis Ortiz in a thrilling encounter in Brooklyn on Saturday, and has knocked out every man he has ever faced.
The WBC champion has regularly called out Anthony Joshua, who holds the IBF, IBO and WBA belts, for a super-fight.
And speaking exclusively to the Sports Bar, Wilder warned ‘AJ’ the pair will meet, with the verdict ending in a knockout in favour of the American.
He said: “I’m going to take the baddest man in the division! It’s just like going to prison when you want to find the toughest man in there to show to get him to go at you.
 
“You got to let him know in the prison – I come in peace.
 
“But, if you break this peace, I will show you when I come in the division and get the toughest man in the division. And not only do I win, but I knock him out.
 
“This is the fight, the biggest fight of our lives, the biggest fight of this history! It’s going to happen, all they got to do is make the fight.”
Joshua must first face WBO heavyweight champion, Joseph Parker on March 31 in Cardiff.
Should he triumph, a huge unification fight seems inevitable before the end of 2018 with the Bronze Bomber – with the winner being crowned the undisputed heavyweight champion of the world.
And the self-proclaimed ‘Baddest Man on the Planet’ sent one final chilling message to Joshua before his bout in Cardiff.
“It’s short and simple,” he said. “Good luck on March 31, hope you prevail.
“Let’s give the world what they have been waiting for. Let’s give the world an epic fight, one that’s going to be in the history books for years and years to come.
 
“One that the next generation, and the next generation will be talking about because it was just that great.
 
“That even the generations before talked about it in the past generations – something that can live on forever.”
