World Heavyweight Champion, IBF, WBA, WBO and IBO Heavyweight Champion Anthony Joshua has reacted to recent statements made by Deontay Wilder.
In a series of accusations made by Wilder against former opponent Tyson Fury, Bronze Bomber admitted that he was offered a lot of money to fight Joshua, but he turned down the tempting offer, deciding on revenge with the Gypsy King.
“The truth will always come to the surface. I have gone through a lot, but at the same time tried to treat with irony what was said about me. Now he confessed. We made him a tempting offer, but he wanted to fight Fury. To be this way. If this is what he wanted was good. But he put my name in the mud, “Joshua told Sky Sports.
“When Wilder tried to mold me into a bad person who didn’t want to promote our sport or fight certain fighters, I had to deal with a bunch of unfair accusations. But now he told everything himself. We offered him a really good deal, but he wanted to fight Fury. People can take it however they want and understand what is right now. “
