Deontay Wilder believes his”sixth sense” informs him that the”secret” reason Anthony Joshua lost to Andy Ruiz Jr – and the rematch will proceed exactly the identical way.
Shockwaves were shipped via the division when Ruiz Jr beat Joshua however he could regain the WBA, IBF and WBO titles once they meet again on December 7, live on Sky Sports Box Office.
“I truly don’t believe he is prepared for this. I am one of those people that he must prove wrong,” WBC winner Wilder exclusively told Sky Sports about Joshua.
“Many people have doubted me from the start and still do this. But I am one of those folks he must prove wrong.
“I understand body language, I am quite smart when it comes to [these matters ]. What his body stated because ring showed all to me that I need to view. The fighter would know within himself.
“The trick is still to be told. Because you would like to keep people guessing, and that’s OK. Can it be this? Or was it that? That’s why the fight is bigger. People don’t understand what to believe.
“Individuals will finally see what it actually was.
“If he is not correct, and people are saying one thing but he does yet some other, then folks will have their own perception of what they consider him later.
“Folks say’if he loses, it is more than’.
“There is more pressure on him. While I talk about his situation I feel emptied.
“Trust me, I have a sixth sense.”
An undisputed heavyweight championship fight could be hammered if Joshua defeats Ruiz Jr, and Wilder remains unbeaten in a rematch with Luis Ortiz on November 23.
Once they battled to a draw last year, Tyson and wilder Fury plan another fight for 2020.
Joshua’s promoter Eddie Hearn told Sky Sports this week:”I really don’t see the February struggle [Wilder vs Fury] could occur.
“The entire world is considering Joshua-Ruiz Jr, also I really don’t think anything will happen until this fight takes place. Ruiz Jr is with the [promoters] PBC and Al Haymon, therefore is Deontay Wilder.
“If Ruiz beats Joshua, they will be looking to earn an inexplicable battle [against Wilder], however, obviously if Joshua wins, that throws everything out. Who will rule out Joshua against Tyson Fury in Wembley next summer”
Joshua, asked if fights together using Wilder and Fury would ever happen, told Sky Sports last week:”Yes, 100 per cent. That’s like asking if a football team will play a different football team. Of course.
“We are in precisely the exact identical branch, in precisely exactly the same period. We must fight with each other.
“We’re all big draws in the heavyweight division therefore it would be enormous.
“I’d like to fight Wilder, I’d like to resist Fury.”
