Deontay Wilder Drops Bombshell Theory About Anthony Joshua Retirement Plan

Deontay Wilder, the former two-time unified heavyweight champion, has made a stunning revelation about Anthony Joshua's potential retirement plans. According to Wilder, Joshua was ready to hang up his gloves if their highly anticipated two-fight series had not fallen through. Wilder's claim comes in the wake of his recent victory over Otto Wallin in Saudi Arabia, where he continued his career rehabilitation.

Rumours Swirl Around Joshua's Retirement Plans

Wilder believes that if he had defeated Joseph Parker, Joshua would have retired from boxing. The Bronze Bomber claims to have heard a rumour about Joshua contemplating retirement if he emerged victorious. However, the shock Parker win scuppered the £100million fight series between Wilder and Joshua.

Hearn Denies Possibility of Wilder vs Joshua Fight

Despite Joshua still expressing interest in facing Wilder, promoter Eddie Hearn has dismissed any chances of the fight happening. Wilder believes that Hearn is actively seeking other opponents for Joshua, suggesting that the promoter is not keen on the potential showdown between the two heavyweight giants.

Wilder Accuses Joshua of Running Scared

Wilder has accused Joshua of being afraid to face him in the ring, claiming that he made the British boxer feel relieved after his defeat. According to Wilder, Joshua was happy when he lost the fight because it meant he could avoid a showdown with the Bronze Bomber. These accusations further fuel the ongoing rivalry between the two fighters.

Mandatory IBF Title Challenger Next for Joshua

While Joshua remains open to the possibility of fighting Wilder, it seems that his next opponent will be mandatory IBF title challenger Filip Hrgovic. The undefeated Croatian has called out Joshua, and it is likely that the two will face off in the near future. However, Joshua has expressed his desire for a title shot and is willing to take on any opponent.

As the heavyweight division continues to captivate audiences, the anticipation for a potential Wilder vs Joshua clash remains high. Fans are eagerly waiting to see if these two boxing titans will eventually step into the ring together and settle their differences.
