Wilder reacted to the news by calling Joshua a "p***y" and a "coward" and he insisted he HAD agreed to a deal to fight the Watford champ.

WBA president Gilberto Mendoza yesterday gave Hearn and Joshua just 24 hours to agree to fight Russian heavyweight Povetkin or AJ will run the risk of being stripped of his title.

Hearn has come forward since and said that after many delays with the Wilder negotiations he is now looking to set up the fight with Povetkin.

Wilder took to his social media late last nigh, tweeting: “I knew I smelt p***y but damn @anthonyfjoshua I didn’t know the odor was that strong you coward ass b****.

“Had the world waiting for three months playing games just for this moment. You’re not a true champion you’re just a weak minded coward that’s holding hard metal."

Wilder’s comments came after actor, comedian and The Ultimate Fighter runner-up Brendan Schaub said that Joshua signed a fight with Povetkin to avoid Wilder.

He tweeted: “Details will come out but he signed to avoid @BronzeBomber, I try not to pick sides but Wilder agreed to EVERY demand Hearn/Joshua asked for. Frustrating would be an understatement."

Hearn instantly jumped on Schaub’s comments saying that Wilder didn’t even come back with a reply to the contract.

He wrote: “No he didn’t? He didn’t sign and he didn’t even come back with any comments.

Schaub replied: “Not what my sources say. Joshua put $50M tag on the fight. Deontay’s team guaranteed $50M.

"Then it shifted to $50M and fight in UK. Deontay agreed.

"Then offer was no longer on the table via Joshua camp. Joshua signed to fight Povetkin.”

And on it went, with Hearn replying: “1. No they didn’t guarantee the money. 2. We asked for a contract and they refused to send one. 3. What an earth are you talking about it was never $50m for a UK fight? Unbelievable – great source."

But things were about to get even better.

Wilder then stepped in telling Hearn to “stop with the bulls***.”

He wrote: " We did it all! you f*****s didn’t won’t this work you scared MFers . You talk s*** but can’t back nothing up you coward and now the ppl see the truth.

“I’m so happy it’s over now I’ve done my part the world seen that so stay in England with that BS.

Hearn responded: “You did it all..apart from none of the above. OR sign the contract OR even respond to the contract.”

Wilder then called Hearn a “coward” and said “f*** your offer b****.”

He finished: “Over here we understand and can identify a coward ass b****. I knew I smelt p*** lmao smdh.

"I’m so happy the Bulls*** is done and p.s. f*** your offer b**** we will have the last laugh I promise you this.”
