Anthony Joshua urged by Deontay Wilder to fight him in the USA if he wants to be a global star

DEONTAY WILDER has urged Anthony Joshua to fight him in America and not in a Wembley showdown.

The WBC heavyweight champ puts his title on the line against Bermane Stiverne on November 4 while Joshua defends his against Kubrat Pulev on October 28.

And Wilder has told the Watford bruiser to face him in the States if he wants to become a global superstar.

Wilder told Sky Sports: “To be global, you’ve got to make your name in America and Joshua is not as big as people think he is over here.

“The UK is about the size of Texas. One state in my country, where people don’t know who Joshua is for real.

“If my name was brought up and Joshua came along it’s the same as if Joshua’s name came up, my name would come along.

Deontay Wilder is becoming frustrated that Anthony Joshua will not fight him

“It will be a great fight, but he is not that popular over here. I had to burst a lot of people’s bubble but he’s not.

“If he wants to be global, he needs to come to America to fight me, but to be honest, I don’t care where it happens.”

Wilder has already voiced his anger at Joshua and criticised the Olympic Gold medalist for not fighting him.

He begins the video by begging the question: “What the hell is going on in the heavyweight division?”

Wilder seems infuriated by Joshua’s latest comments in his interview with Sky, where he said that he wasn’t prepared to rush his career and would do things his way.

The 31-year-old American appeared to goad Joshua in his video rant, perhaps somewhat frustrated at missing out on the payday that went alongside the fight.

In the close-up shot Wilder slowly repeated the statement that he is the most-feared heavyweight in the division and questioned why it would take until 2020 for Joshua to build up the courage to fight him.
