Anthony Joshua eager to knock out WBC champion, Deontay Wilder

Anthony Joshua has revealed his plans to get a ruthless early knockout win over Deontay Wilder if they finally meet in an undisputed world title fight in 2020.

The rival heavyweight champions hold all four titles between them, with Joshua regaining his WBA ‘Super’, IBF and WBO belts in a rematch win over Andy Ruiz Jr, while Wilder defended his WBC strap with a seventh-round knockout win over Luis Ortiz.

Wilder has enhanced his reputation as ‘The Bronze Bomber’ in 2019, but Joshua insists he can diffuse the heavy-handed American.

Joshua is yet to decide on his next fight with mandatory title defences against Kubrat Pulev and Oleksandr Usyk, for his IBF and WBO belts.

Wilder, who already confirmed his rematch with Tyson Fury in February, has repeatedly called for ‘one champion, one face, one name,’ with Joshua saying he is willing to accept his challenge, if he emerge victorious against Fury.
