Anthony Joshua is already playing mind games ahead of a possible showdown with ‘Bronze Bomber’ Deontay Wilder, telling the American to fight him when he is man enough.

The British-Nigerian boxer had been tipped to fight Wilder in 2019, but somehow the fight did not materialize before the Wilder was arranged to fight Tyson Fury.

Deontay Wilder claimed that Joshua stylishly avoided him stating that he did well to duck the fight.

Joshua will be in action on December 12 when his WBA, WBO and IBF heavyweight world titles will be up against Bulgaria’s Kubrat Pulev.

The champion who is of Nigerian descent has further reiterated that he still wants to take on Wilder despite Fury holding one of his belts. Joshua told the Off The Cuff show on DAZN via Dailymail:

“He (Wilder) is another challenger. The offer still stands when he's ready and he's man enough to not lie, be real.
“It wasn't nice when they were trying to tarnish my name. It'll be good to get (him to) stop (the) PR stunts and get a fight underway."

At the moment, Wilder is battling to get a legal stance to enforce a possible rematch with Fury as the trilogy bout was abandoned after they failed to agree on a date with Fury's team.

Should Joshua emerge victorious on the weekend and Fury win his legal battle against Wilder, the stage will be set for the two heavyweights to meet in a fight for the undisputed crown.
