Anthony Joshua says Deontay Wilder’s only weapon is a powerful right hand and has vowed to brutally expose his American rival if they finally share the ring.

Wilder wants to resurrect talks for an undisputed world heavyweight title matchup against Joshua, if he regains the WBC title in a third fight with Tyson Fury in Las Vegas on July 24.

But Joshua has dismissed Wilder as a serious threat to his WBA, IBF and WBO titles, insisting that the Alabama man has already shown his limitations in a stoppage loss to Fury last February.

“He’s not an elite fighter, in my opinion,” Joshua said. Sky Sports News.

“He’s good. They’re the heavyweights, so they always know that one hit can change the course of a fight.

“But I’ve never seen a fighter in the heavyweight division go to war with just one weapon, which is what they say his right hand is.

“When do you get to the top level? Trust me, that doesn’t last any longer. That doesn’t work.

“As we’ve seen now with certain elite fighter fights, he fights at the top level, and there are many more of us waiting for that opportunity to kick his butt as well.”

Wilder suggested that “excuses” have already been made to avoid a fight against Joshua, who is preparing for a mandatory WBO title defense against Oleksandr Usyk, and Tottenham Hotspur Stadium is expected to host the fight in September.

“Definitely, without a doubt [I want the Joshua fight]Wilder said Sky sports.

“No excuses, no mandates, nothing in the way.

“As I see, they are already making excuses. They already have a mandatory plan in advance.

“Nobody really wants to fight someone like me, and I don’t blame them.”

Predicting a victory over Joshua by knockout, Wilder said: “In a devastating way.”

Joshua pointed to his track record as proof that he is willing to take on any opponent, saying Sky sports: “This is the first time I’ve talked about Deontay Wilder, so I don’t know what excuses he’s thinking I’m making.

“I’m a fighter of yesteryear. Look at the resume, I’ve been with all of them. The new school and the old school, and there’s still so much more to do. I’m fighting a great fighter in Usyk.

“I’ll fight all of them. Wilder is just another in the pecking order, no problem.

“I don’t know what excuses you’re talking about.

“Talk is cheap, the cheapest thing to buy on Earth is talk.

“I’m an elite fighter. I’m not one of those tomato cans that knocked out.

“You better watch what he’s saying and reality check, because when the day comes when we confront him and me, I know what I’m capable of.”
