Deontay Wilder gets trolled for calling out Anthony Joshua on Twitter

Deontay Wilder v Gerald Washington

Anthony Joshua probably has a list as long as his arm (and his arms are pretty big) of potential opponents to fight next after beating Wladimir Klitschko last weekend.

The British star further cemented his status as one of the biggest stars in boxing with a brutal knockout of a man, who previously dominated the heavyweight division for a decade, in front of 90,000 people at Wembley.

As a result, he has become the man every heavyweight wants to beat. That is easier said than done, though, of course.

While Tyson Fury has been touted to go toe-to-toe with Joshua at some point over the next few years, any fight in unlikely to take place within the next 12 months.

In the meantime, Joshua has been called out by another world champion Deontay Wilder on Twitter.

The WBC champion was at Wembley to cast his eye over Joshua-Klitschko but seemed more concerned with starting a feud with Tony Bellew.

Wilder and Bellew clashed at weigh-in which led to increased speculation the pair could meet in the ring later this year.

However, Wilder reminded everyone that Joshua is still on his radar by tweeting Klitschko's conqueror a warning of his capability.

The American has won 37 of his 38 professional fights via knockout and sent Joshua a video of his most recent victory over Gerald Washington.

It was accompanied by the caption: "Awesome fight @klitschko but this is how you finish a fight...The WILDer Way. #WilderJoshua anyone? @anthonyfjoshua"

As you can see, The Bronze Bomber's latest victim fell to a brutal assault in the fifth round but fans didn't appear to think that video really portrayed the message he was trying to send.

Yes, it was devastating, however, it was also quite erratic and a quick look at some of the replies to Wilder's tweet indicate that boxing fans weren't overly impressed.

Funnily enough, we doubt Joshua will be quaking in his boots too much by his heavyweight rival's latest jibe either.
