Deontay Wilder told to fight Anthony Joshua by Mike Tyson and not retire as legend says he would ‘love’ to see it

MIKE TYSON wants to see Deontay Wilder take on Anthony Joshua before he hangs up his gloves.

Wilder, 36, revealed in December he is considering retirement after losing to Tyson Fury for the second time in October.



But Tyson feels he still has something to give and should get back in the ring, despite losing his world champion status two years ago.

Tyson told Club Shay Shay: “I think Deontay Wilder should fight some other guys.

“He’ll do good, I just don’t want him to get discouraged.

“He should be very happy and be ready to fight somebody else right away.

“I would love to see that fight (with Joshua), yes.

“They’re gonna be winging. There ain’t gonna be much style, they’re gonna be winging.”

Wilder was frequently linked to a Joshua fight when the pair were both world champions, but a deal could never be reached.

And if a fight happened now, heavyweight rival Fury reckons Wilder would knock out AJ inside three rounds.

But the American could instead fight another Matchroom boxer – Derek Chisora, who is keen to face Wilder.

Joseph Parker is also eyeing a bout with the Bronze Bomber – the Kiwi is determined to beat an American on US soil.

So Wilder is not short of options and could even get a shot at becoming world champion again if he fights Joshua, though the Brit must first win his rematch with Oleksandr Usyk.
