Deontay Wilder defeats Bermane Stiverne by first-round knockout

The IBF and WBA Super champion Joshua recently defended his belts against Carlos Takam

Wilder knocked late stand-in challenger Stiverne to the canvas early on in the first round, before flooring him again and securing a win with a stream of punches.

Asked about the prospect of a fight still being on the cards, Hearn told Sky Sports News: "I think 2018, we want to see Deontay Wilder against Anthony Joshua, no question". At all. In fact, it happened in the first round.

It wasn't a fight many wanted to see considering that Wilder won a one-sided decision when they met in January of 2015.

"My belt says the heavyweight champion of the world".

"I know I am the best but I wanna prove I am the best".

"A king doesn't chase a peasant, I don't chase peasants, I want Joshua".

Joshua and his camp have hinted at potential fights with former heavyweight champ Tyson Fury and even Dillian Whyte before a possible unification bout.

WILD AMBITION Deontay Wilder is fighting this weekend - but could he REALLY beat AJ?

Three people shot, one dead in shooting at Chicago Starbucks
Police believe the deceased victim was the intended target and the other victims did not know the victim. The shootings occurred about 8:15 p.m.in the 4700 block of North Broadway Street, police said.

Just like Golovkin-Canelo and Mayweather-Pacquiao before it, Wilder-Joshua is what the fans, broadcasters and media want.

After knocking his opponent out in a brutal first round at the Barclays Centre in Brooklyn, the U.S. boxer called out to his British rival: "I declare war on you". You want to do [Joshua-Wilder] at a soccer stadium in the United Kingdom, let's do it. Deontay Wilder will put Anthony Joshua to sleep the same way he just put Stiverne to sleep. I've been waiting for a long time, I know I'm the champion, I know I'm the best.

Stiverne stepped in to take the fight at late notice after serial cheat Luis "King Kong" Ortiz failed another drugs test. The world wants Joshua, the world wants Wilder. I want Joshua. If he don't give me the fight we have other plans ... why should I go to England to fight a peasant without the king on the contract? "No more dodging, no more dodging, no more excuses".

"I am ready to go anywhere in the world". "Make a date, don't wait", Wilder said.

It was as yet unknown why their hearings were adjourned by the court, which deals with cases involving lawmakers. The prosecutor has asked the National Court judge to issue an worldwide arrest warrant against them.

Whether the Matchroom boss has a change of heart following Wilder's explosive win remains to be seen but there are many in the sport who would rather see Joshua share the ring with Wilder than with United Kingdom rival Tyson Fury - as proposed now.
