American boxer, Deontay Wilder has come for Anthony Joshua after his heavyweight rival was stunned by Andy Ruiz Jr. in one of the biggest shocks in the history of heavyweight boxing.
Joshua was knocked out in seven rounds making Ruiz to win the IBF, WBA and WBO titles previously held by the former.
On the occasion of the defending champion’s US debut, at New York’s Madison Square Garden, Joshua was dethroned as the world’s leading heavyweight by a significant underdog who took advantage of becoming a late-notice opponent to secure a life-changing win.
And Wilder, who has been accused of avoiding Joshua, took to Twitter to say:
“He wasn’t a true champion. His whole career was consisted of lies, contradictions and gifts. Facts and now we know who was running from who!!!!”
