Anthony Joshua seen to be mocking Deontay Wilder's next fight

Anthony Joshua v Jarrell Miller - Press Conference

After being ordered to by the WBC, American boxer Deontay Wilder will likely defend his belt against the mandatory challenger Dominic Breazeale in the coming months. 

Heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua has fought Breazeale before - knocking him out in the seventh round of Joshua's 17th bout back in 2016, however, the American boxer has built himself back up to secure another shot at the title.

Since the bout with AJ, Breazeale has had three fights with a 100% win rate.

After beating Izu Ugonoh in February 2017 (which won Ring Magazine's 'Fight of the Year'), his next fight was against Eric Molina, which was on the undercard of the Wilder vs Stiverne rematch in November 2017.

Last December, Breazeale fought again, this time against Carlos Negron, and won in the ninth round.

 

It will be Wilder's 42nd professional fight, and it comes after the WBC champion having difficult encounters with Luis Ortiz and Tyson Fury.

The showdown against Fury was controversial, as it ended in a draw, despite Wilder thinking that he'd done enough to win after knocking Fury down twice.

However, the majority of boxing fans felt it was Fury who deserved to take home the win.

The fight against Ortiz was equally as tough, going all the way to the 10th round before the American won via a TKO.

So with Wilder seemingly fighting Breazeale and then probably Fury again, it leaves the dream fight of Wilder vs AJ in the distance, but that hasn't stopped the Brit from reacting to the latest news.

A video of Joshua has been posted onto Twitter, mocking the news by doing an impression of rapper Soulja Boy's recent interview with Breakfast Club.

In Soulja Boy's video, he cries out 'Drake?!' in a response to the suggestion that Drake is bigger than him. Similarly, Joshua was filmed to cry 'Breazeale?!' when met with the news of the match-up.

Watch the funny video below.

The Brit has said that he would want a fight with Wilder to unify the division between them, but the American has insisted that the fight will happen, and that he has begun talks with Joshua's American broadcaster DAZN. 

Joshua is due to fight another American, Jarrell Miller, in the June of this year. He will be defending all three of his heavyweight belts against the contender.
