DEONTAY WILDER has taken an enormous swipe at Anthony Joshua over his “lack of stamina” after the Brit’s tenth-round stoppage of Carlos Takam on Saturday night time.
The American boxer advised AJ to “keep off these weights” because the pair put together for a possible showdown in some unspecified time in the future in 2018.
Eddie Hearn revealed the pair might be set to square-up within the coming months after Joshua retained his heavyweight titles.
Following the struggle at Cardiff’s Principality Stadium, Wilder advised FightHype: “He undoubtedly has stamina issues, we noticed that within the Klitschko struggle.
“If I used to be him, whoever his stamina coach is, they must be fired.
“There are a number of issues that Joshua is doing fallacious that is making him have these stamina issues.”
Wilder places Joshua’s lack of stamina all the way down to his muscular physique, saying that is boxing not weightlifting.
The American added: “Keep off these weights.

“He practice his physique to elevate, to elevate issues so the muscle mass going to be good for lifting however this sport you ain’t lifting nothing however your personal physique.”
Wilder went on to have his say on the AJ-Takam struggle, reserving reward for the Frenchman, saying: “Takam was a tricky dude.
“He got here in and he was like ‘you’ll be able to say no matter however I’m coming to win’.
“He bought my respect. He bought lots of people’s respect and he gained a number of followers.
