Anthony Joshua welcomes fight against Deontay Wilder or Tyson Fury

Anthony Joshua welcomes fight against Deontay Wilder or Tyson Fury

Wilder's co-manager, Shelly Finkel says the American is "very interested" in putting his WBC belt on the line against Joshua, who holds the WBA, IBF and WBO belts.

Wilder believes that he was the clear victor of the bout. Overall, it was a great fight and a result sure to be discussed for some time to come.

In his role as Fury's promoter, and alongside the British Boxing Board of Control, he has made a complaint to the WBC over the scores that meant their thrilling world heavyweight title fight, at Los Angeles' Staples Centre, concluded as a draw.

Wilder faced the two toughest opponents of his career this year including a spectacular knockout win over Cuban slugger Luis Ortiz in a Fight of the Year candidate in March. He would love Wilder next and he has always wanted Fury. "I take nothing away from this fight, but we won this fight", Wilder stated.

Fury doesn't think Wilder is as keen as him on a rematch.

While the fight played out exactly in favor of each fighter's strengths as Fury controlled by boxing with constant feints and awkward angles while Wilder (40-0-1, 39 KOs) picked his spots to land heavy counter shots which threatened to end the fight. I'll give you a fair one when your ready.

The previously-unproven Davison, 26, had been considered a potential weakness in Fury's preparations but in only their third bout together he oversaw a performance that suggests the fighter is again the world's finest heavyweight.

And promoter Warren is planning action in a bid to at least enforce a rematch, having been outraged by judge Alejandro Rochin's scoring, which contentiously had Wilder winning the first four rounds en route to a 115-111 success.

"If he wants to be professional and keep it in a private discussion, I'm open to it".

"But, I have to get rid of this guy (Flores) first".

If nothing else, both fighters dramatically raised their profile and proved that the heavyweight division is the glamour division of the sport.
