ANTHONY JOSHUA has hit back at Deontay Wilder’s dig about the British boxer and blasted “Who the f*** is he… he’s not a psychologist.”

This means fans will continue to wait for the heavily anticipated bout between the Brit and the American.
To keep light at the revelry Wilder gave his say on whether Joshua would face another defeat.
The 38-year-old said: “I worry about every fight he is in. We question Joshua about his identity.
“Eddie Hearn built Anthony Joshua, he wasn’t born a champion, he was made a champion. “
AJ has won 29 fights in his professional career and has suffered three defeats which saw him lose his heavyweight titles.
But Joshua has since recovered from consecutive defeats against Oleksandr Usyk with wins over Jermaine Franklin and Robert Helemius.
The Brit bit back at Wilder’s comments and said: ” Who the f*** is he? He’s a boxer, not a psychologist.
“The boy has had 50 fights and he fought Jason Gavern in his 30-something fight, I probably fought him in my 12th.
“We are different, my identity is strong. If they’re looking for weaknesses and gaps, then they need to stop looking over here because I’m solid.”
But Wilder continued to say how if he had the same opportunities as Joshua he would still have been able to keep his heavyweight titles.
The America boxer lost his WBC Heavyweight title to Tyson Fury in 2020 after two consecutive defeats.
Wilder added: “They did an amazing job of promoting him and getting him to the top.
“I would’ve been the undisputed heavyweight world champion many years ago if I had the opportunities he was given.”Anthoy Joshua is set to face Otto Wallin in Riyadh on December 23rd[/caption]
