Deontay Wilder rips Anthony Joshua after first career loss

Deontay Wilder

Deontay Wilder was feeling some schadenfreude after watching Anthony Joshua get upset by Andy Ruiz Jr. on Saturday night.

Wilder, who is the WBC heavyweight champion, ripped Joshua on Twitter for losing to Ruiz. Wilder said Joshua “wasn’t a true champion” and questioned Joshua’s career.

Joshua, previously 22-0, was often viewed as the best heavyweight in the world prior to his loss to Ruiz. Wilder, a knockout specialist who is undefeated, was the fighter fans wanted to see face Joshua. The two went back-and-forth but never made the fight happen. Now that Joshua has lost, a fight between them is no longer as attractive as it once would have been.

Wilder is set to face Luis Ortiz and then have a rematch with Tyson Fury after that. Meanwhile, Joshua’s next fight is likely to be a rematch with Ruiz. Wilder and Joshua may fight one day, but it won’t carry the same intrigue now that Joshua has lost.
