He then went ahead to beat Jermaine Franklin in an explosive fight, knocking out the American in round seven.

And AJ’s promoter and Matchroom Boxing chairman, Hearn, has now stated that the former two-time heavyweight champion will triumph over Wilder in an impending bout.

Hearn told Boxing Social via Marca:

“I think if he can be a little bit more aggressive with the style that he’s adopted, with the way he’s improved his feet, his movement, his defence, his distance – I think he’s gonna be, it’s difficult to say unbeatable, but I think he beats everyone. I’m so confident he beats Deontay Wilder.”

Wilder’s trainer warns Joshua

Meanwhile, ahead of their proposed blockbuster heavyweight bout, Deontay Wilder’s trainer Malik Scott has fired a strong warning to Anthony Joshua.

Scott has boasted that Wilder is currently in a staggering shape and would not go that long before crushing the British-Nigerian.

The trainer stated that Wilder is in the form of his life and will be too dangerous for Joshua to take on.

Sports Brief earlier reported that Anthony Joshua is in high spirits after finishing off his last opponent with a brutal knockout punch and has wasted no time calling out his next one, a very household name.

Joshua delivered a vicious blow to knockout Robert Helenius in the seventh round. However, it appeared he intentionally prolonged the fight, having had opportunities in the fifth and sixth rounds of their encounter at the 02 Arena in London.

The victory scored over Helenius puts the Nigerian in good spirits ahead of the fight against Deontay .
