What did we learn from Anthony Joshua's unanimous points win over Joseph Parker to unify three versions of the world heavyweight title?

Whyte is also on the cards and has also expressed his interested in a showdown with Wilder after challenging him following his victory over Lucas Browne last month, but he may need to wait for Joshua to make his move before getting his wish.

Joshua and his opponent from New Zealand went into this fight unbeaten, but the British overcame Parker who has never been down according to the commentator of the fight.

However, the bout which i feel the whole boxing industry would and needs to see, is, of course, Deontay Wilder who holds the WBC world title. In response, Finkel, who has the authority to get the contest signed from the Wilder side, told The Telegraph: "We're ready".

If it's not Wilder next, Joshua will most likely fight in the United Kingdom again; possibly against Russia's Alexander Povetkin, who is No. 1 in the WBA and WBO rankings.

Eddie Hearn, the promoter of Joshua, has previously stated that Wilder's camp have been hard to deal with and that churning out a deal may not be a totally straightforward affair.

Defeating Wilder would see Joshua add the WBC belt to his WBA, WBO and IBF honours, but the fight is yet to be formally arranged.

For the first time in his career Joshua was underwhelming and didn't clear the high bar he's set for himself. That is not Anthony's fault nor would i ever blame him for the fact. "It's his (Joshua's) call on how many times he wants to fight this year". The jab of Joshua was the most impressive factor of the night, disrupting the flow which was required from Parker to gain any leverage in the action of the proceedings.

'These are two undefeated heavyweight champions, ' Finkel said. Tomorrow. I'll go for a run.

Wilder knocked out top contender Luis "King Kong" Ortiz in the 10th round to retain his title for the seventh time on March 3 in NY and is free and clear of any mandatory defense.

"If Wilder then fights in June or July against Breazeale, then our fight with Wilder would not take place until November or December". Beyond Wilder and Povetkin, the most unsafe tests are rematches against Parker and British rival Dillian Whyte. David Haye would also be an option, should he win his rematch with Tony Bellew.
