Joshua sends strong message to Wilder ahead of Ruiz Jr. fight

Wilder and Joshua(L-R)

Anthony Joshua has urged Deontay Wilder not to “rob the fans” but agree to an undisputed world heavyweight title fight.

He has now appealed to WBC titleholder Wilder to reverse his decision to fight Luis Ortiz next.

“Let’s not rob the fans of a good fight. I am a fan of this sport and I feel like I’m robbing myself of a good fight.

Good luck to whatever he is doing, he said. But if he wants to come and see us  because he hasn’t announced a date or a venue  then we can have a conversation.”

Joshua and Wilder are unbeaten in a combined 64 fights, 62 of which have been won by knockouts.
