WBC Heavyweight world champion Deontay Wilder believes his “sixth sense” shows the secret of the defeat of Anthony Joshua (AJ) to Andy Ruiz Jr. at the first meeting – and why the duel will go the same way. In volume 1 duel on June 1, AJ was surprisingly embarrassed by Ruiz Jr. through the seventh round of TKO defeat. “I know the secret of AJ,” Wilder said.
The defeat made Joshua lose his WBA and WBO Heavyweight world championship belt. The British boxer wants to reclaim his championship belt in a December 7 duel in Saudi Arabia. “I really can’t believe he is ready for it. I am one of those people he has to prove wrong,” Wilder said exclusively to Sky Sports about Joshua.
“Many people doubted me from the start and are still doing it. But I am one of those people he must prove wrong,” he continued.
Wilder revealed the secret of Joshua’s defeat of body language during the fight against Ruiz Jr. in the ring. “I understand body language, I’m very good at things (these things). What his body said showed me everything I needed to see. Only a true fighter will know in himself, ” he explained.
In Wilder’s staging, Joshua’s duel with Ruiz Jr will be more exciting. “The secret has to be revealed. And that’s okay because you want to make people guess. Is this? Or what is it? That’s why the second battle is bigger. People don’t know what to think,” he explained. “People, in the end, will see what it really is. ”
In the position of the challenger, Joshua’s burden is heavier than Ruiz Jr. Because Joshua is a former champion who is very ambitious to win back the championship belt. “There is more pressure on him. When I talk about the situation, I feel tired,” he said. “Believe me, I have a sixth sense,” he stressed.
On the other hand, Wilder will undergo two repeat duels, namely against Luis Ortiz and Tyson Fury. Wilder will serve Ortiz on November 23. Next year, Wilder will take on Fury in February 2020.
The result of the duel will determine the fate of the two boxers to fight one day. Wilder wants to face Joshua if he is able to defeat Ruiz Jr. However, boxing promoter Eddie Hearn told Sky Sports this week: “I don’t see how the February fight (Wilder vs. Fury) can occur,” he said.
“If Ruiz defeats Joshua, they will be looking to have an unnecessary fight (against Wilder ), but it’s clear that if Joshua wins, it erases everything. “Who can frustrate Joshua’s duel against Tyson Fury at Wembley next summer?” Hearn asked.
