Deontay Wilder branded Anthony Joshua a “coward” live on television. Appearing on Good Morning Britain alongside Tyson Fury to promote his December 1st fight, the American was asked about the possibility of meeting British heavyweight Joshua in the ring.
Wilder, the WBC king, believes the Joshua camp don’t really want the fight.
“Hey Joshua, me and Fury are about to get this thing going on, baby,” he said looking down the camera. We’re about to see who the biggest and the baddest in the world, one champion, one face, one name, something you were too much of a coward to do in your own country.”
“You were a coward and you know this, your whole team know this. You said different things over and over. You manipulate, you are compulsive liars.
“The audience put their hard-earned money into this, this is an emotional sport. Enough is enough. Joshua had a career plan and Deontay Wilder wasn’t in it from the start.”
