Deontay Wilder believes Anthony Joshua will not win a rematch against Andy Ruiz Jr. However, the WBC heavyweight champion belt holder was still curious to fight Joshua despite losing to Ruiz.

Wilder said Joshua lacked confidence in facing Ruiz in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, on the December 7 rematch.

“Certainly,” Wilder told BoxingScene.com. “I want to fight with Joshua while he is still in the (heavyweight) division. If he keeps losing every time he fights, if it becomes like that, then the fight will never happen. But so far, there is still a chance.”

Joshua-Wilder was the most awaited fight in boxing before Ruiz defeated Joshua on June 1 at Madison Square Garden. Unexpectedly, unseeded Ruiz knocked down Joshua four times before winning the TKO over the British superstar in the seventh round.

“Even if he loses against Ruiz, it is still an opportunity,” said Wilder, who then wanted to fight Ruiz first. “Even if he loses again to Ruiz, I still want to fight him. But he can’t lose again after that, or he will really fall. “

” But it will be interesting to see what happens. He knew this, this rematch was an important battle for him, that he had to win this fight. “

“I don’t think it will be the end for him if he doesn’t win it, but it will be a long journey if he doesn’t win. We will see, but I still want to fight him.”

33-year-old Wilder (41-0-1, 40 KO), from Tuscaloosa, Alabama, and 29-year-old Joshua (22-1, 21 KO), from Watford, England, must face many opponents each before the fight they become a viable alternative again.
