Deontay Wilder continues to jab Anthony Joshua over upset loss to Andy Ruiz Jr.

first_imgDeontay Wilder was quick to blast Anthony Joshua following the British boxer’s monumental upset loss to Andy Ruiz Jr., essentially calling for the former unified world heavyweight champion a fraud who “quit.”Well, more than a month later, the WBC heavyweight champ isn’t done jabbing at AJ. Speaking with TalkSport’s Jim White, “The Bronze Bomber” doubled down on his opinion that Joshua quit during his shocking seventh-round TKO loss to Ruiz at Madison Square Garden in New York City on June 1.“I think Ruiz beat him too easily,” Wilder said. “I don’t think Joshua knows how he lost right now. In my opinion, Joshua quit.Join DAZN and watch more than 100 fight nights a year”As a fighter looking in, understanding and reading the body language, he quit. I’m sad to say, he quit, though.”Wilder proceeded to pinpoint three tell-all signs that Joshua did indeed quit, including him spitting out his mouthpiece following his fourth knockdown of the fight, blatantly ignoring the ref’s instructions to come forward and finally looking to his corner for guidance, which the WBC champ believes was a “sign like I’m looking for a way out.””I don’t think he’s a quitter,” Wilder continued, “but it’s going to sound contradicting, but he quit that night.”“In my view, Joshua quit.” ❌“As a fighter reading the body language, I’m sad to say that he quit.” 💥“Ruiz beat him too easily, he doesn’t know how he lost that fight.”@BronzeBomber says Anthony Joshua quit in his big fight with Andy Ruiz Jr. pic.twitter.com/frz1pURAHr— talkSPORT (@talkSPORT) July 26, 2019MORE: The timeline that led to Ruiz’s historic upset of JoshuaWilder’s latest comments follow him ripping Joshua with a series of tweets in the immediate aftermath of him losing to Ruiz.(Warning: explicit language) He wasn’t a true champion.
