Anthony Joshua insists that Deontay Wilder is planning ‘secret masterplan’ against Tyson Fury

Anthony Joshua insists that Deontay Wilder is planning ‘secret masterplan’ against Tyson Fury.

Anthony Joshua believes Deontay Wilder’s silence could point to ‘a masterplan’ in the works following his defeat at the hands of Tyson Fury.

Wilder, one of the most outspoken fighters in the heavyweight division, has been incredibly quiet since losing his WBC heavyweight belt in his rematch with Fury back in February.

Fury has already revealed a trilogy fight will no longer happen this year and he is seeking a new opponent to face in the coming months.

But Joshua feels Wilder could ‘be in the lab’ working out his next move and assessing everything that went wrong in that stoppage defeat by Fury.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Joshua said:

‘Either he’s putting together a masterplan – he’s in a lab right now, with his science glasses on, studying Fury’s every move,

‘Either he’s doing that, or he’s sitting at the edge of that lake, with his head in his hands and thinking, “What’s going on?”

‘One minute you’re on top of the world, and the next minute you’re not. That’s the name of the game we’re in.’

Wilder did enact his rematch clause after defeat in February but delays caused by the coronavirus pandemic has seen a trilogy bout delayed.

Fury’s camp insist the rematch clause expired this month and their attention is now turning elsewhere in the heavyweight division.
