Last week, Anthony Joshua called out another undefeated champion in Deontay Wilder, telling the "The Bronze Bomber" that he wants a shot at the WBC heavyweight belt and that it's time to "come see me."
Now with Wilder in New York City for an upcoming fight against Dominic Breazeale, he's recently responded to AJ by saying he's ducked every previous opportunity they've had to fight.
"We did that 5 times," Wilder recently told TMZ, "and they denied me! So, I don't want to hear him talking about 'coming to see me' because we came and saw you, ya'll still ran! Now you want me to come and see you? Nah, now it's on our terms. We'll come and see you when we want to come and see you."
Wilder then added: "They didn't want it, they wanted to stay behind the castle in England... so stay your ass over there - now you in my country, you were a big fish in a small pond and now you're here and if you have nowhere to go."
Meanwhile, Wilder's match with Breazeale will be his ninth defense of the WBC heavyweight title, set to go down this Saturday night (May 18th) at the Barclays Center.

Although he's set to fight Andy Ruiz Jr. in June following a failed drug test from Jarrell "Big Baby" Miller, the unified heavyweight champion of the world Anthony Joshua has made it perfectly clear that he wants a shot at the undefeated WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder.
TMZ recently caught up to Joshua who spoke with nothing but encouragement for Miller as well as his new opponent Ruiz Jr., while letting it be known that he wants the WBC belt from Wilder to add to his WBO, WBA, IBF, IBO collection.
"Wilder, I want Wilder," Joshua said to the camera, "He's got the belt... and if he's ready and wants to prove he's the best in the world, then come see me."
Meanwhile, Joshua vs Ruiz Jr. is set to go down June 1st at Madison Square Garden, where Joshua will reportedly earn $25 million in his US debut.
