Deontay Wilder slammed Anthony Joshua’s display against Andy Ruiz Jr on Saturday night – and said he doubts he will ever fight the British-Nigerian.
Joshua defeated Ruiz in a unanimous points win to regain three of the heavyweight world titles.
But WBC Heavyweight champion, Wilder was unimpressed and didn’t hold back in his criticism: “Joshua did what he had to do to get the win. He ran around the ring and was on his bike all day.
“Basically, he had Klitschko in the camp and he was a lot like Klitschko. That jab-grab-hold method. That’s all he did tonight.
“You want to dominate guys, man. Maybe I’m just too rough, too hard-core and too much of a dream for this time and era, maybe the world wants that nice s***.
“My mentality is so different from these other fighters. But when I think of myself as a champion, you want to come out there and whoop his ass.
“I’m not coming in, after losing to this guy, to just dance and grab and jab and hold. I’m going to show the world and convince them I am the very best and that no one is close to me.”
About a unification bout happening, the 34 year-old American said: “I don’t think we’ll ever see a unification bout. We’ll never see it, and I don’t want people to get their hopes up on it because it’ll never happen.
“They couldn’t say anything about fighting me. They couldn’t mention my name. They went around me.
“I’m too dangerous. You’ve seen what I do in the ring. I don’t play around.
“And they know if Ruiz can get Joshua out of there, imagine. That’s why they stayed away from me.”
