Anthony Joshua talks over Deontay Wilder fight to 'start next week'

That is because mandatories for Joshua's WBO, WBA and IBF belts will soon rack up and it might mean he loses one of the belts which will reduce the importance of the Wilder clash.

"Sometimes as a fighter, you just know when someone's got the beating of you, whether it be because of their style or their mindset".

Anthony Joshua defeated Joseph Parker by points on Saturday to unify the WBO belt to his IBF and WBA titles.

Still, Joshua struggled to raise a smile. If you look through my record from my 21 fights, there hasn't been an issue with fighting anyone.

"It is a fight Anthony Joshua really wants and I think he wants it this year", the Matchroom chairman said last week. We are on to the next one, in my eyes.

He predicted Joshua's next target, WBC champion Deontay Wilder whom he wants to fight to complete the set of belts, would beat the big Brit.

"Wilder. Let's go baby, let's go", Joshua shouted from inside the ring to raucous cheers from the 78,000 people packing Cardiff's Principality Stadium, also namechecking Tyson Fury as another possible opponent. "We are one away now".

With talks of a fight between Wilder and Anthony Joshua escalating, it seems as if Whyte will not get his wish.

In these situations it is day-by-day. "It is about tactics but there will be fire in the game, and it's at Anfield so the atmosphere will be good".

The jab was the key for Joshua against an often-retreating opponent.

Joshua and Parker embrace. "It's about seeing the punches coming too". I thought it was hard, but going the 12 rounds was light work. I said "mate don't be sorry, I'm proud of you".

This result was New Zealand boxer Parker's first defeat in his 25-fight pro career.

Joshua's run of 20 consecutive stoppages came to an end against Parker - but his path to the undisputed heavyweight crown remains clear.

Whyte brutally knocked out Lucas Browne the week before Joshua's win against Parker.

"But with them, they are so erratic and unpredictable, I don't know what to believe. I'm too unsafe. I'm the first of my kind, bringing a new style to boxing".

"We want to make it public that Deontay wants the fight, and we are prepared to come over, or meet here and get the deal done".

Barry went on to question the British Boxing Board of Control for approving Quartarone's appointment but Joshua painted an entirely different picture when he emerged later for the pre-fight news conference, flanked by a gleaming and growing collection of belts.

Parker did have some success with his raiding tactics and ripped a right hand through Joshua's guard in the fifth, before charging out again in the sixth and chasing AJ to the ropes.
