Deontay Wilder tells Anthony Joshua to either ‘fight or shut up’ in chilling video as he vows to ‘dethrone’ heavyweight champion


You said if the people want it then you want it. Well, the people want it. Do you? Or do y’all have some hidden agendas? Are y’all hiding anything?
‘We’re on it so either fight or shut up. Your promoter has talked so much. He says you’re gonna knock me out in three rounds? Let’s see it.
‘I’m ready to dethrone you, I will be heavyweight champion of the world, I will defeat you. Are you up for the challenge?’
Wilder polished off Bermane Stiverne in the first round to retain his WBC heavyweight title in Brooklyn and immediately set his sights on a huge showdown with Joshua, who defended his WBA and IBF titles against Carlos Takam last month.
Earlier, Wilder urged Joshua’s management team, particularly promoter Eddie Hearn to stop ‘ducking’ him and agree to a title unification bout.
‘I think Eddie is ducking me more so than Joshua,’ he told BBC Sport. ‘If Joshua’s a strong champion, a true champion, you guys in England should smoke him out, make him fight.
‘You should see if he’s the best. My heart says I’m the best, if I’m not I want someone to show me.’

Joshua would prefer to fight on home turf, as he has done his entire career, but has said he would be willing to make the trip across the Atlantic to face the Olympic gold medal winner.
‘Packing out stadiums looks good but the money and Mecca of boxing is in America,’ Wilder added. But if you want to stay at home like a little girl, this king has no problem travelling to knock out the champion.’
