WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder appeared on Good Morning Britain today as he kicks off his press run with Tyson Fury for their upcoming bout in December. And when the topic of Anthony Joshua came up, Wilder made it abundantly clear how he feels about the other heavyweight titleholder...

“Aye, Joshua. Me and Fury bout to get this thing going on, baby. We about to see who’s the biggest and the baddest in the world. One champion, one face, one name — something that you was a coward to do in your own country!

“You was a coward! You was a coward, and you know this! Your whole team knows this. Each and every last one of you said different things over and over. You manipulate, you contradict, compulsive liars. Con artists!

“Enough is enough. If you didn’t wanna fight just say it! don’t drag these people along. And Frank Warren already got in your butt!”
