Deontay Wilder Claims Team Joshua Bought The IBF Title From Charles Martin – “They Bough It For Sure”

Deontay Wilder got word of Anthony Joshua’s jabbing comments and the WBC World heavyweight champion responded by lashing out at Joshua in a recent interview with fighthype.com.

In the interview with fighthype, Wilder slams one of Joshua’s titles wins and claims that the current number one heavyweight boxer is a coward.

“He don’t say he’s the best, he don’t even know if he’s the best or not but he’s a champion. They bought that first belt from Charles Martin for sure,” said Wilder.

Joshua fought Charles Martin for the IBF title back in 2016 and won the belt via knockout.

The American continued his rant and stated that the heavyweight division is scared of him.

“You’re a champion, I’m a champion. The people say you the best, they speak for you. You’re a coward, you can’t speak for yourself. I speak for myself and I say I’m the best. So let’s see who’s the best.

“They were already terrified of me, and when I say ‘they’, I mean all the top guys in the heavyweight division. I’m not saying they’re all scared of me, I know some of them want to fight me and really feel they can beat me but I do put fear in these fighters’ hearts and they should have fear because I’m coming in to try and really hurt you to the point where you don’t even have a life to live,” told Wilder.

Wilder is defending his WBC belt on November 4th against Bermane Stirverne at the Barclays Center in New York.
