WBC Champion, Deontay Wilder Labels Joshua A Coward

Anthony Joshua’s representatives have made a “much-improved” offer for a world heavyweight title unification fight against WBC champion, Deontay Wilder but so far the overtures have been rebuffed.

The 28-year-old Joshua, who holds the WBA, IBF, WBO and IBO crowns, stopped Russian Alexander Povetkin at Wembley Stadium in September and is locked in to stage his next bout at the same venue in April next year.

Wilder, who is scheduled to fight Tyson Fury in Los Angeles on December 1, labelled Joshua a “coward” at a news conference on Monday for failing to secure a bout between them.
