The new World Heavyweight boxing champion, Anthony Joshua has given a reply to his rival, Deontay Wilder, after the American criticized him for his ‘weak mentality’ in Saturday’s win over Andy Ruiz.
The British-Nigerian boxer Anthony Joshua has on the nigfht of Saturday, December 7, reclaimed his four (4) heavyweight belts that he lost to Mexican heavyweight Andy Ruiz on the first day of June, but shortly after his victory he was roasted by his undefeated rival, Wilder, who claimed Joshua’s win over Ruiz was like that of a ‘weak champion’, claiming Anthony Joshua was running around the ring to avoid being knocked out by Ruiz.
In his staement reacting to Wilder’s statement, Anthony Joshua said;
“That’s Wilder’s opinion.” A lot of people don’t have a good bone in their body to say a positive thing anyway. I outboxed the heavyweight champion of the world for 12 rounds. I don’t think I lost a round. Maybe one
“I come in there with a great game plan, I’m successful. Isn’t that good enough?
“You can’t box to keep everyone happy; you have to box for the win. And I feel like when I’m at home celebrating, he’s there talking about negativity. Negative energy breeds failure so I’m just going to keep a positive mindset and build on that victory”.
