World heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua is no stranger to interviews and his own name being thrown into the media spotlight.

In an interview with DAZN-USA, Joshua talked about the dangers of unscrupulous managers and corrupt promoters in the sport of boxing. and pointed to the exploitation of boxing legend Mike Tyson to illustrate his point.

Speaking about the exploitation suffered by Tyson from people who tried to cash in on his reputation and marketability, Joshua also took a moment to poke fun at Wilder, taking on his best American accent and using a line made famous by the 33-year-old star.

Of the advice that Joshua warns about, he told DAZN-USA: "I just think something simple like 'Don't worry son - just focus on the boxing and leave everything else to us.'"

The interviewer interjected: "Eddie Hearn said that?"

"No!", insisted Joshua. "I'm not saying Eddie Hearn said that. But you know what I'm saying.

"I think it's important for a manager or promoter to educate his student. 'This is what you're going to do, this is how you're going to get on.' The better the student does, the better the manager or promoter looks.

"I think with Mike Tyson, the people that were around him around, if they had not tried to steal then people would have still been eating till this day."

It was here where Joshua made the dig at Wilder as he mocks the American for his emphasis on the line 'till this day' in a famous interview which has seemingly taken over the internet for many amused fans around the world.

You can see Joshua's mocking of Wilder and donning of an American accent above.

Joshua has yet to face off against the Bronze Bomber in the ring, but it still remains one of the most highly anticipated fights in the sport, and it seems just a matter of time before an agreement is settled between both parties for a blockbuster fight, whether it be in the United States or the United Kingdom.

Both with undefeated professional records, Wilder is fresh off the first draw of his career after a highly controversial tie with Tyson Fury earlier in the month.

Both boxers have incredible records, with Joshua recording 20 wins from KO out of 21 total fights, while Wilder similarly recorded 39 wins from KO out of a total of 41 fights.

With this brand new interview mocking Wilder, it only adds fuel to the fire that will get this fight underway for the whole world to see.
