Deontay Wilder has blasted Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury after both boxers agreed to train together ahead of a Wilder-Fury fight in February.

Joshua had in December offered to spar with Fury so as to help him beat Wilder when they meet for a second bout after their first ended in a draw.

Reacting to the plan against him, Deontay Wilder stated that they ought to be fighting against each other to determine the best between them, not teaming up.

Wilder told TheBoxingVoice: “I saw it. Look at those b**ches, that’s what I said, they’re all some b**ches. Who tries to team up on someone, you know?

“You say you’re the best, I say I’m the best, now you motherf***ers are trying to team up with each other. I guess it’s UK vs USA.

“It builds my confidence up, it allows me to hold my chest out and lift my head up a little bit more higher and walk through the room like I’m the man.” “When I see guys double teaming and trying to help each other out like that when the world’s trying to see who is the best out of the heavyweight division, it makes me feel good.

“So hopefully those guys get to work with each other and come up with a master plan to beat the impossible.

“I don’t think there’s a heavyweight in the division that’s got no type of plan, I don’t care what trainer they bring aboard or have in their camp.

“I’m one of my kind, the first of my kind. And people just have to deal with it, face of it, understand and look at the beauty inside of my craft which I display to the world.”
