Tyson Fury pokes fun at Anthony Joshua before making major fight claim

New Zealand Herald boxing writer Patrick McKendry on Deontay Wilder's title fight against Luis Ortiz.

Yeah I know, it's more of a sentence fragment, but it keeps popping up everywhere I go and I can't help to notice it always contains some sort of backhanded compliment followed up by a slight that seems to erase whatever props showed up in the initial statement.

McKendry also says that if the Blues couldn't win against the injury-riddled Chiefs on Friday night, then they are highly unlikely to beat another Kiwi side this year - however he is 99 per cent sure Tana Umaga will be re-signed.

Wilder isn't pretty to watch and he does many things in an amateurish fashion and after fighting 10 years as a pro that's just who he is.

"Saturday was a great fight and Deontay showed plenty of heart", Hearn told Sky Sports. Wilder hit Ortiz with two vicious combos to the chin, which sent him to the floor in the tenth round.

He landed a couple of wild, yet vicious, haymakers on Ortiz who eventually crumbled to the canvas.

Wilder lauded the rapper with an Instagram post where he shouted her out for being the first woman to walk out with a fighter.

The second key takeaway from the weekend for the man who doesn't exist is that he shouldn't be expecting any favours - or even anything approaching justice - should his fight with Joshua go the distance.

However, Roach is the master of surprise and Quigg will give his all 'to prove that I was right to leave the United Kingdom and put my faith in Freddie.' *Valdez v Quigg will be televised live on Sky Sports late on Saturday night. This was the first round I scored for Wilder and he shaded the sixth with neither fighter doing much.

Back in 2017, Anthony Joshua and Wladimir Klitschko thrust the division back into public relevancy in one of the most dramatic and pulsating heavyweight bouts in years.

Australian fighter Browne is in the United Kingdom preparing for his showdown with British rival Dillian Whyte in London on March 24. "His promoter [Eddie Hearn of Matchroom Boxing] don't want that fight and after tonight they definitely won't want it". I really don't want to talk about the dude no more because I've said all I have to say. So Wilder doesn't have to be a heavyweight Hearns to beat Joshua or anyone else in the division. Whoever you think came closest to falling off the edge of cliff into defeat, does that make their victory even greater?

With Wilder having at last captured the imagination of the American market, a showdown with Joshua would vastly outstrip both Parker v Joshua - and a unification fight between Wilder and Parker.

" I've done enough calling Joshua out". "I wondered why it took so long for him to get a title shot and now we know".

The former unified heavyweight world champion has not fought since November 2015, but is targeting a return to the ring in the coming months.

"I nearly had him and I think I would've if there were a few more seconds in the round", Ortiz said.

Why does the boxing fan base refuse to acknowledge Wilder's achievements for what they are?
