Joshua tells Wilder 'I'll be watching'
Anthony Joshua has revealed he will definitely be keeping tabs on heavyweight rival Deontay Wilder's fight against Dominic Breazeale.
The unbeaten British fighter is currently preparing for the defence of his WBA (Super), IBF and WBO heavyweight belts against Andy Ruiz Jr at Madison Square Garden in New York on June 1.
However, with Wilder defending his WBC belt against Breazeale this weekend, Joshua has revealed that he will take time out to watch a potential future opponent in action.
In addition to a possible undisputed heavyweight showdown, AJ is also keen to see how Wilder fares against Breazeale given that he stopped him inside seven rounds when they met in June 2016.
When asked if he will watch the fight, the 29-year-old told Sky Sports: "Yeah, yeah 100 per cent.
"Styles make fights, I think Wilder will fare well against Breazeale. I think Wilder is too quick, he's a very, very fast heavyweight, but Breazeale is tough, took me seven rounds.
"I hope Wilder does it in nine, so I can be like 'hey I done it earlier'. You know how it is, comparisons and stuff, but yeah it will be interesting to see.
"You look at the small things, I look at the small details - when he's getting tired, how many right hands he throws in a round. I look at something different, rather than comparisons to the rounds."
