Ex Heavyweight boxing champion, Deontay Wilder never stood a chance against Tyson Fury, Anthony Joshua has said. He recently revealed this while speaking to the press, and the world has been reacting.
According to him, Wilder was doomed from the beginning of his heavyweight trilogy fight because he clearly lacked the intelligence to carry out his game plan.
Anthony added that Wilder did his very best on the night but to deliver the right power and ferociousness, a good boxing brain is needed.
His words, “He tried, but to get that power and that ferociousness, you have to have it up here [points to his head].”
“Before you have it just here [clenches fists] at that level, you have to have it here [points to his head] as well.”
“Not in this day and age [can heavyweights jab for 12 rounds] because heavyweights are different.”
“I met the guy who makes gloves the other day, and he said that they never used to have to make special gloves. But now heavyweights are 17 to 19 stone and six-foot ten. The whole division is changed in the last, like, five years.”
“And before, fighters could jab like that for 12 rounds and get away with it. They’d get a bit tired, but they were conditioned because they were lighter.”
“But now, when you’ve got big guys [who are] six-foot seven, they get tired.”
