WBC Heavyweight Champion Deontay Wilder believes he is on another level to IBF Heavyweight king Anthony Joshua.
The two Olympians have been on a collision course which looks to be a foregone conclusion within the next year or two.
Wilder is coming off the knockout win of Gerald Washington in February whilst Joshua is currently preparing for one of this year’s biggest contests against former ruler Wladimir Klitschko in front of 90,000 spectators at Wembley Stadium, London.
The true ruler of the division is one of debate amongst the boxing community but Wilder believes he is the man that stands above all others.
“I definitely feel like I’m on a whole ‘nother level than Joshua,” Wilder told Fight Hype “I’ve been in this game for a while now. I’m very experienced. I think I’ve seen every style to see, you know, the major styles that I need to see.
“I think I’ve seen it, I’ve learned it, and that’s what allows me to adjust in the ring and do my thing.
“I definitely feel and know that I’m in another league of my own when you compare the two of us. “
There is little doubt that the fight would capture the interest of fight fans worldwide with a knockout inevitable.
“I mean, if you look at Joshua, Klitschko, and [Joseph] Parker, Parker has the WBO belt, and you take those three and put me up on a chart and say which one would be the most exciting fight, a lot of people would think the Joshua fight would be the most exciting fight out of the three and I think I agree,” he said.
