World Boxing Council (WBC) heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder has launched a tirade against Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury about plans to team up against him.
In late December, Joshua publicly declared that he wanted Fury to beat Wilder and so offered to spar with him and help him prepare for their February 22 rematch.
Fury accepted Joshua’s offer replied though it seems unlikely it will actually take place.
Despite the collaboration not eventually happening Wilder stated it will only increase his confidence.
“You say you’re the best, I say I’m the best, now you motherf***ers are trying to team up with each other. I guess it’s UK vs USA.
“It builds my confidence up, it allows me to hold my chest out and lift my head up a little bit more higher and walk through the room like I’m the man.”
He added: “When I see guys double teaming and trying to help each other out like that when the world’s trying to see who is the best out of the heavyweight division, it makes me feel good.
