Deontay Wilder Rips Anthony Joshua Again: \'No One In U.S. Knows His Name\'

It's a great time to be a heavyweight boxing fan when you consider the de facto tournament that is set to continue in March. 

WBC champion Deontay Wilder (39-0, 38 KOs) faces top contender Luis Ortiz (28-0, 24 KOs) on March 3. Four weeks later, Anthony Joshua (20-0, 20 KOs) and Joseph Parker (24-0, 18 KOs) both put their perfect records at stake in a title unification bout on March 31.

The goal, of course, is that the winners would face off in late 2018 for a shot at declaring the sport's first undisputed champion to hold all four recognized titles simultaneously. For most boxing fans (and likely those running Showtime, which will air both fights), the hope is that Wilder and Joshua are the ones who advance and square off. 

While both feared sluggers have showed interest in eventually facing one another, Wilder has been more vocal. Joshua, who has arguably grown to become boxing's biggest star, closed 2017 by saying Wilder needs the fight more, equally for critical and financial reasons.
