WBC heavyweight world champion Deontay Wilder still thinks that it’s too early for IBF champion Anthony Joshua to face former heavyweight king Wladimir Klitschko.
“I'm still going with the same remarks I made. I don't feel Joshua is ready for that fight yet on the experience level, but this is boxing and this is the heavyweight division. This division is based on power, so realistically if either guy hits the other the right way, they could knock each other out for sure. I'm still going to stand by my words, I really feel this is too early for Joshua.” - Wilder told boxingtalk.com.
Anthony Joshua will beat Wladimir Klitschko and go on to "take over boxing", says fellow London 2012 Olympian Errol Spence Jr.
