Former WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder’s frustration might have driven him to a new level of anger as he joined Jarrell Miller recently to speak against Anthony Joshua.
Wilder had been professional with his mentioning of British former unified heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua.
A new Wilder commented on Miller’s recent battle of words with Joshua.
In his statement after his countryman Jarrell Miller told Joshua to stop choosing weak opponents, Wilder said he seconded Miller’s statement.
Wilder said, ‘I think I shocked a lot of people when I came with a cool, calm and collected attitude [to the press conference]. But that’s me all day.
‘There’s a time and place for all things and that wasn’t the time and the place to come out with all the “I’ve been waiting on you AJ” or say something like Jarrell Miller said.
‘I didn’t have to say anything, everyone said what needed to be said, especially Jarrell Miller. I can’t stand him one bit, but he told the truth about AJ.’
Negotiations to match Wilder and Joshua as opponents have continued to be fruitless, with both sides claiming the other side was the cause. However, Wilder’s prolific blames on Joshua might have started to sway public opinion.
Both men will fight on December 23 if things happen as planned, with Joshua boxing against Otto Wallin, while Wilder will take on Joseph Parker. Would Wilder and Joshua win, then the duo might face each other next year.
Wilder pointed out that Joshua’s form has declined.
‘By him saying what he said, enough was said,’ added Wilder. ‘I didn’t need to come to AJ. It seemed like a lot of other guys were already coming at him.
‘It seems like he doesn’t have the respect he once had. A lot of the guys coming up disrespect him and say anything to him.
‘And I think that’s kind of a frustrating thing for him, to go from one state of mind – everyone respects him – to now losing a few times and everyone now thinks you’re very beatable and we can beat you, so we’re going to talk trash to you and get to you.’See Dollar(USD) to Naira Black Market Exchange Rate Today!
