Anthony Joshua Wins 4th Belt; Wants Fight With Deontay Wilder To Unify

Joshua was quick to call out Wilder after defeating New Zealand's Joseph Parker on Saturday to add the WBO title to his own IBF and WBA belts.

Higgins added: "I spoke to Eddie Hearn yesterday and he said he would be more than happy to help out with opportunities". There's no other heavyweight in the world about whom a plausible case can be made to beat Anthony Joshua and vice versa.

A fight with the undefeated WBC champion Wilder (40 wins, 39 KOs), would see the heavyweight division unified for the first time in history.

Joshua confirmed his status as the world's leading heavyweight, but expects criticism for his latest performance, as it did not have the usual explosive finish.

There have also been loose discussions between the camps of making it a two-fight scenario with the first at Wembley and the second on United States soil either in Las Vegas or NY.

"Thanks Anthony, I can't wait to meet you in the ring".

When Daniel Jacobs took middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin to points for the first time after a 23-fight knockout streak, Triple G went straight into a megafight with Saul "Canelo" Alvarez.

Astrophysicist Brad Tucker of Australian National University called Tiangong 1's re-entry "mostly successful". In mid-March of this year, it was evident that Tiangong-1 would return within a few weeks.

Joshua refused to rise to Wilder's comments, including a previous remark when the American said he wanted a "body" on his record.

Parker plans on going for a run on Thursday morning as he looks to make the most of the tremendous shape he got into for the biggest fight of his career.

While Joshua plots another HUGE unification bout against WBC holder Deontay Wilder, it's back to the drawing board for Parker. In preventing Joshua from working him over, he neglected to try and put any hurt on his opponent. I saw it 117-111 Joshua.

Joshua's win means that he now holds three of the four recognized world titles, repotsBBC News. "I'll knock him spark out", he said of Wilder to the wild cheers of thousands in the Welsh capital.

Hearn said: "It was a awful thing to say and something I am sure he regrets, but in the heat of the moment, he is just trying to be famous".

Joshua and Parker are as we speak at polar opposites of the spectrum now, one on the edge of eternal greatness and the other rebuilding and picking up the pieces. Unlikely, but he proved to me that he is one of the best heavyweights out there, just a shame that the Italian referee hindered both men in reality.
