Anthony Joshua, Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury accuse each other of avoiding the big fights but AJ warns his rivals: & The longer they leave, the worse for them & # 39;
- Anthony Joshua is preparing for his debut in the United States against Andy Ruiz
- Elephant in the room is the question why he is not fighting one of his rivals
- The fans of Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury claim they are being stunned
- AJ insists that he wants the fighting and thinks that he is improving if that is not the case
The question is the elephant in the room, looming over all three of them.
Why do you fight against these people instead of each other?
Last week it was Deontay Wilder who explained his explosion of desperate Dominic Breazeale in less than one round in the land of kinks.
Next week it will be Tyson Fury who warns himself not to be smug against someone called Tom Schwarz.

This week it is Anthony Joshua & # 39; s turn, to rationalize why his American debut will appear in the sacred Madison Square Garden in the other corner … … … … ..Andy Ruiz Jr.
The bronze bomber, the gypsy king and AJ continue to accuse each other of throwing each other away.
So now Joshua argues for his own defense, and he tells the boxing public that if it was up to him alone, he would box Wilder on Saturday night for the undisputed heavyweight championship of the world.
& # 39; I don't know why I'm not happening to Deontay & # 39 ;, says Joshua of the fight to become the undisputed heavyweight world champion who is still in the dark. & # 39; It's not about me anymore.
& # 39; It was all about me and him two years ago. Call it out. Wilder looks like a fool. All great profile building. All cash figures are thrown around. But nothing happened and now the fans who get the hard end of the stick are starving. I feel sorry for all the people who want to see it. & # 39;
Of the three failed negotiations, he said: & I offered him twice the money ($ 100 million) he offered me. It was a real television broadcasting contract from DAZN. We could have fought immediately if he wanted to. I can't understand why he won't fight. It's not honest people who say it's Joshua who challenges. He can't make the excuse to want more money. & # 39;

Wilder tells it differently, saying that all he ever wanted is a straight 50-50 split of the loot between two champions and that has never been offered. What he does not want is to be locked into the digital DAZN network by Joshua & # 39; s promoter Eddie Hearn.
Wilder & # 39; s co-manager Shelly Finkel predicts that two of his husband's next three will be fights against Fury and Joshua, while Hearn reiterates that & # 39; Wilder and AJ will happen next year. & # 39;
But after all the fake days – and with Wilder not claiming the ring on Saturday to call Joshua again, few will believe it until the contracts are set in stone.
Joshua admits: & # 39; There is also promotional side, the interests of managers. I don't think it's Wilder. It's the people around him. But if you believe that your hunter can become the undisputed world champion, then you go for risk and reward. & # 39;
He places Fury in the equation when he says: & Both Wilder and Wilder waste their own time. They are closer than I am at the end of their career – ten or eleven years of age as professionals. The longer they leave it, the worse they get.
AJ thinks that Fury and Wilder waste their time and have a better chance if they fight fast
& # 39; They won't get better, but I still have five years to improve my skills. I am not yet the finished article. Imagine me with another 18 months in my bag with tricks & # 39;
That said, Joshua must immediately influence the US market against Ruiz while avoiding this round slugger what he calls & quot; a potential banana peel that could ruin & quot; everything.
He adds: & # 39; Let's continue. We all say that the big fights must happen. & # 39;
Only sometimes do they take too long to happen – Floyd Mayweather v Manny Pacquiao. Sometimes they never happen – Lennox Lewis against Riddick Bowe.
And at best, with other so-called interim battles already in the pipeline, it seems like it will take a while before that poor old elephant is released from captivity.
* Joshua v Ruiz Jr will be broadcast live exclusively on Sky Sports Box Office on Saturday evening.
