Deontay Wilder retains world title with first round knockout over Bermane Stiverne

Joshua is keen on the fight and is planning a summer showdown against him next year

Ruthless Wilder knocked down his opponent three times in the opening round before the referee jumped in to stop the scrap.

Wilder now boasts a record of 39-0 with 38 knockouts and, alongside Britain's Anthony Joshua, is one of the most feared boxers on the planet.

The unbeaten WBC heavyweight champion took full advantage of that opportunity Saturday night, when he destroyed Stiverne in their second fight.

However, the WBC champ has not really made great progress with his purses as he earned $1.5m (£1.1m) for fighting the little-known Artur Szpilka in January 2016. "Everybody wants to fight Anthony Joshua and you will see him fight everybody".

The Olympic bronze medallist turned down £3m to fight Dillian Whyte, instead accepting a fraction of that to beat Stiverne for a second time. I've been waiting for a long time.

However, Joshua's trainer Robert McCracken has previously said he would personally like to see Joshua fight Kiwi Joseph Parker the current WBO heavyweight champ before Wilder. The victor of Joshua-Wilder is the real heavyweight champion. Deontay Wilder is Anthony Joshua's worst nightmare. "So the fight should happen where the biggest prize is". I want Joshua. If he doesn't give me the fight we have other plans. The boxing fans deserve it.




Lou DiBella, who regularly promotes Wilder's fights, also agrees that Vegas would be the better spot for the fight to take place if they want to make more money, saying: "And this is called prizefighting. We don't want to wait".

He told Sky Sports: "I was really interested to see the weight of Deontay Wilder on the scales [220 pounds].I texted that to Anthony today".

"A king don't chase the peasants", Wilder said. No more dodging, no more excuses. "I told y'all I'm mobile, I'm hostile, I am the king baby and no heavyweight can compare to me". Make the date, don't wait. He unloaded a brutal four-punch combination - right, left, right and another left as he was falling to the mat.

"I had a text from his promoter tonight, asking if we fancy making that fight next".

Wilder would have preferred to face Ortiz (27-0, 23 KOs), but he tested positive for two banned diuretics (chlorothaizide, hydrochlorothiazide) in a random urine test conducted by the Voluntary Anti-Doping Association on September 22, and was dropped from the fight.
