ANTHONY JOSHUA has been warned about the possible outcome of a clash with Deontay Wilder.
The former two-time heavyweight champion appeared to be on track to finally resolve his five-year feud with the American in a showdown in Saudi Arabia in December.
However, Saudi boxing bosses ultimately put an end to the fight – even though both parties agreed to lucrative deals.
The tentative plan at this point is for the duo to fail on the same Saudi card following their respective clashes on December 23rd with Otto Wallin and Joseph Parker.
And four-time heavyweight champion Evander Holyfield sees only one outcome of the fight.
The Real Deal tells ES News: “I think Wilder will get him.”
The 34-year-old AJ has made strides under the guidance of new head coach Derrick James in his back-to-back games against Jermaine Franklin and Robert Helenius.
However, these improvements did little to convince Holyfield that Wilder would not detonate one of his atomic bombs with his right hand to his chin.
He continued: “I think he’ll get him because of the big throw and because of the style that Joshua fights.”
“He holds back and is open, and when you are so open.” [Wilder] will give you the right hand.”

Joshua and Wilder have been blowing each other away since they held all the heavyweight marbles five years ago.
Watford star Joshua has remained silent on the long overdue showdown, something that cannot be said of Wilder.
The Bronze Bomber told Blue Blood Sports TV: “I just don’t know what’s going on with Joshua, bro.
“Maybe I have to goand sit down with him for real male sex.
“I don’t want him to feel like I have something against him, but I know he’s afraid of me.”
“Joshua – me and you, this is the biggest fight in the world, brother, what are you doing?”
“I really want to talk to this guy.”
