Wilder attacks 'boring' Joshua's against Ruiz, sends tough warning to him on how great he is

- Deontay Wilder believes Anthony Joshua did not give enough in his victory over Andy Ruiz

- The WBC champion slams the Briton for adopting Wladimir Klitschko's "boring" tactics

- Wilder also claims Joshua's mentality in the fight was just to survive, not to win as a true champ

WBC heavyweight champion, Deontay Wilder, has launched a subtle attack on Anthony Joshua after the Briton handed Andy Ruiz his second career defeat to reclaim his heavyweight belts.

Joshua won the rematch showdown in Diriyah Arena in Saudi Arabia on Saturday night, December 7, albeit on a unanimous point decision.

The 30-year-old heavyweight champion landed a brutal flesh-cutting punch on Ruiz's upper left eye but was dragged to the 12th round by the resilient Mexican star before avenging his Madison Park defeat in style.

Reacting to the victory, Wilder who is Joshua's biggest rival in the heavyweight decision, fiercely slammed the Briton for using Wladimir Klitschko's "boring jab-grab-hold" tactics.

"Joshua did what he had to do to get the win. He ran around the ring and was on his bike all day," the WBC champ told The Athletic.

"Basically, he had Klitschko in the camp and he was a lot like Klitschko: that jab-grab-hold method. That's all he did tonight.

"When you land the right hand, you've tackled the distance. When you land that punch, you know you're in exact position for the second time around.

"But he was so hesitant... Joshua's mentality was to survive. The Klitschko method.

Wilder, who was linked with a mega money unification fight in the past, also boasted that he is the biggest face in the division.

"I think of myself as a champion... you want to come out there and whoop him. 'Im not coming in, after losing to this guy, to just dance and grab and jab and hold," Wilder said.

"Joshua had many times he could've gone for the finish after he landed the right hand.
