But Joshua feels that Wilder has played him in his hands.

He says: & believe me, I'd rather fight Wilder in two years. Because I know I will get better all the time. And when he is 33, he is the one who gets older.

& # 39; I had to push to fight against him because of all public demands. And I understand that.

& # 39; If it wasn't for the pressure that I can't hide as he can, I could fight Joe Bloggs and fight someone.

& # 39; Wilder is not under such pressure & # 39; n pressure because nobody knows him. Although it is not fair that I have been accused of avoiding him. & # 39; Joshua feels that he has been rushed since he became professional in the year after he won gold, as a late starter in boxing, at the London Olympics. & # 39;

He added: & # 39; It has been like that, because after only my third pro fight I was asked when I went to fight Wladimir Klitschko.

& # 39; Imagine two years ago when I defeated Charles Martin for the world title after eliminating Dillian Whyte.

& # 39; Compare the type of fighter that I was then to where I need to go now.

& # 39; Think about where I will be if I fight Wilder in a year or two. I will be much more sound. & # 39;

Joshua admits that he & # 39; are very impressed & # 39; was from Wilder & # 39; s spectacular first round KO from Dominic Breazeale here in New York last Saturday night.

It helps Joshua that Wilder takes all the heat for the final disappointment, after all previous failures to negotiate a deal have fallen.

Although his decision to recapture Ortiz, who was close to taking out the Bronze Bomber before he flattened himself, was not unexpected.

The giant TV companies that manage Wilder, Joshua and Tyson Fury separately will not be as unhappy as the public with the latest developments. The longer the wait, the greater the fight and the more the money.

Van Wilder is thought to be planning another rematch of a controversial fight – the December draw against Fury – before considering Joshua.
