ANTHONY JOSHUA has told Deontay Wilder to “stop living the fantasy” and accept who would be the bigger draw in any potential title unification fight.

A clash between Joshua, Britain’s IBF and WBA heavyweight champion, and WBC belt-holder Wilder for the undisputed world title would be one of the biggest bouts in world boxing.

Yet verbal blows between the pair via the media aside, there has been no serious negotiations between either fighter’s camp.
