British Boxer now holds four heavyweight titles

  • Anthony Joshua edged out Joseph Parker

Forget the hype, I'm about business so let's get the business done.

"I wouldn't want a body on my record".

Joshua unified the WBA, IBF and WBO heavyweight titles last night in Cardiff after overcoming a tough challenge from Joseph Parker. It would the first time since Lennox Lewis held the title in 2000.

Anthony Joshua called on Deontay Wilder to face him this year after his points win over Joseph Parker on Saturday.

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. "Wilder's Wilder, ain't he?" I pray for success and I pray for [an opponent's] health.

"When the ref came to the back, he couldn't speak English", Parker said, via the Telegraph.

"Why would I want to kill her son in the ring?" I just hope it doesn't happen to someone. It's for the better for everybody, and the sport. It's not nice to write about, is it? But he has taken a hiatus from boxing to get his life in order.

He added: "We're looking at all options but I would say with the experience we've made over the last three months, with the fan base and brand awarenesss that Joe and Duco have developed here in the United Kingdom, I think there is every chance our next fight will be here in the UK". I swear to you, it's no problem. But I wasn't disappointed that he didn't come. This was about Parker and about me.

"If they (Wilder's management) stepped up and were actually serious about the fight and serious about a deal we are more than willing to offer them, it could happen next", said Hearn junior.

"Without being big-headed, that's 100 per cent. I wouldn't rule out AJ fighting in America despite his comments last night". But with them they are so erratic, you just don't know.

"We want the fight, they want the fight, the public want the fight". I'm not talking about catching a body or killing someone or about the Africa map.

Eddie Hearn, Joshua's promoter, insisted after the Parker fight that Wilder's camp "don't want" a unification bout.

"These are two undefeated heavyweight champions". I don't get scared. A fight against Wilder would make everyone happy. I asked Eddie has anything been said? If we get two great fights, there will no doubt be a third. My career will still go on.

"It was a frightful thing to say and something I am sure he regrets, but in the heat of the moment he is just trying to be famous".

And he only improved those credentials further as he looked a class above his Australian opponent throughout in London, with Whyte eventually knocking him out in the sixth round. So I knew he was going to be determined. "He has to sacrifice a little bit as well". He worked methodically behind his thudding jab and watchful defence to "take the spirit from a champion", as he put it. It explains why Joshua tipped the scales at almost a stone lighter than he did for his previous fight. "I am the man".
