Deontay Wilder Talks Potential Fights Against Joshua and Ruiz Jr

Last updated

Heavyweight Deontay Wilder recently discussed a number of topics during an interview with Marcus Watson on Instagram Live. One of the questions posed to the Bronze Bomber surrounded potential upcoming fights against Andy Ruiz Jr and Anthony Joshua.

‘Without naming the obvious that people obviously know [Tyson Fury], I’d love to fight guys I haven’t fought” Wilder began. ‘You know, the ones at the top who I haven’t fought, haven’t got my hands on, that’s what I want. I know that’s kinda lame a little bit, to not name a name, but anyone I ain’t faced at the top, I’m talking about you.’

Deontay Wilder on Top Targets

When asked if Ruiz Jr and Joshua were top targets, Wilder responded with “yeah. Any fighter that’s at the top that people haven’t seen me fight and people strongly want to see me fight, that’s who I want to fight” Deontay Wilder continued.

‘I can sit here and name names all day, that’s the easy part. I’m just gonna go to the top, if it’s someone I ain’t fought, that’s who I want to fight. I want to clean the division out. People think I’m gone or I’ve stopped boxing. I haven’t.’
