Joseph Parker claims 'This is just the beginning' on arrival back home

Joseph Parker claims 'This is just the beginning' on arrival back home

Deontay Wilder in 2018? "Deontay is ready to sign and come to the United Kingdom to fight this summer".

Wilder, yet, the unified-heavyweight champion has insisted he's not leaving the U.K, effectively ruling out a fight across the pond.

After Saturday's fight, 32-year-old Wilder tweeted that Joshua's win was a "robbery" before pretending to call the Briton's promoter Eddie Hearn, telling him to "pick up the phone".

Joshua added the WBO heavyweight title to his WBA, IBF, and IBO belts on Saturday when he defeated Joseph Parker by decision at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff, Wales.

Alabama native Wilder, 40-0 (39KOs) stirred an unrelated controversy over the weekend when he once more claimed he "wanted a body on his record" - an idea he has peddled in the past and subsequently addressed in an interview with The42. "Deontay accepts the challenge".

Whilst this makes business sense and would be incredibly lucrative in Britain, I cannot see it doing Joshua's legacy any favors as people genuinely want to see if he can cope with the power and unpredictability of the American Heavyweight. There is nothing on Team Wilder's side to prevent me from fighting you next.

"You also said on Saturday that your team is ready to meet with [Wilder co-managers] Shelly Finkel and Al Haymon from my side to get this deal done", Wilder said.

Time is of the essence after the IBF ordered a bout between Dillian Whyte of Britain and Bulgarian Kubrat Pulev to decide who will become the mandatory challenger for Joshua's belt.

When asked if Joshua is afraid of WBC world champion Anthony Joshua, DiBella claimed that, "I think when everyone around you is afraid, it's gonna make you think too".

Talks of an Anthony Joshua v Deontay Wilder megafight at Wembley Stadium in the English summer is good news for Joseph Parker, who could feature in the main undercard bout in front of another huge crowd and global television audience.

"We want to relax and enjoy ourselves and look forward to the future and start planning some fights and get back into it straight away".
