The WBC champion has not held back following his draw with Tyson Fury

Deontay Wilder said he hopes Anthony Joshua gets knocked out by one of his “second-tier” opponents in the near future.

The American made his feelings clear when asked about his heavyweight rival, following his disputed draw with Tyson Fury on Saturday night.

Negotiations for a fight between AJ and the Bronze Bomber broke down earlier this year, leading the WBC champion to his bout with Fury.

However, the way talks collapsed has undoubtedly left a bitter taste.

“I haven’t even thought about Joshua and them,” Wilder responded, “They’re getting what they deserve.

“They felt like they was the only one running this sport.

“Me and Fury came together to show the world what it looks like for the best to fight the best. Look at the outcome.

“They had their opportunity. It could’ve been me and Joshua that had that excitement going on, but their egos got the best of them.

“Let them continue to fight the second-tier fighters and hopefully one knocks him out.”

Deontay Wilder also carries some distaste towards Joshua’s promoter – Eddie Hearn – regarding the failed negotiations

Further pressed regarding how he expected Hearn and Joshua would have reacted to the success of his fight with fury, Wilder laughed and added: “They were throwing up, they didn’t wanna see this fight do well.

“They were already trying to downplay it. They want to be the global face of boxing, period. They don’t want no-one else to be equal to them.

“I don’t care what they do. Don’t worry about coming out now, you was already in hiding.

“Now you wanna come out of hiding because nobody’s talking about you guys no more? Enough talking about them, I’m excited about Fury.”
