It wasn't a thriller but Anthony Joshua didn't deserve the boos

Joshua's words seemed to take a little dig at Tyson Fury who wants to fight him in the future

Joshua's words seemed to take a little dig at Tyson Fury who wants to fight him in the future

"Obviously when one guy's got the 76-inch reach and the other guy's got 84-85 it's very important to us when we do close the distance that we're able to work", Barry said. "I say my little prayer in the corner [before a fight], I pray for success and I pray for [my opponent's] health and I pray he'll be safe once he leaves the ring".

After Finkel's comments surfaced, Matchroom boxing responded by posting a video of AJ calling out Wilder to their official Twitter page.

Giuseppe Quartarone was the third man in the ring as Joshua added the WBO, to his IBF and WBA belts.

"I will go back, train hard and come back stronger".

"I'm throwing another one in the hat, that I think is a much better name".

I think it (Wilder fight) has to happen in 2018, otherwise we are going to hit some major problems with the politics and the mandatories.

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.

Who will Anthony Joshua fight next after defeating Joseph Parker?

The hand speed of Parker was on show in the opening round as he pushed out probing jabs at Joshua, who edged forward menacingly on the front foot. If Wilder's camp stepped up and were actually serious about the fight and serious about a deal, we are more than fair to offer them. "But they are so erratic and unpredictable, I don't know what to believe". If he was so interested in becoming undisputed champion, why didn't he say to Wladimir: 'This is the belt your brother had all these years. "I'm too unsafe. I'm the first of my kind, bringing a new style to boxing".

Gazza, 50, looked dapper in a grey suit as Joshua, 28, made his way towards him in the crowd.

Anthony Joshua doesn't share that desire with Wilder but he refuses to ridicule "The Bronze Bomber" for his remarks.

Parker's next steps are not known as of yet, but he had expressed is eagerness at a potential rematch with AJ shortly after the fight should it be accepted. Parker charged out for the sixth, chasing Joshua to the ropes, and both traded big punches as a tense duel turned into a brutal encounter.

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. As the affable loser said: "I fought good, but he was the better man on the day". Fury hasn't fought since being suspended in 2016 due to drug and medical issues.
