Wilder calls out Joshua after savage TKO win

When Stiverne returned to a vertical base for a second time, Wilder ran at him with raw and unbridled ferocity, before unleashing a salvo of punches that caused the Haitian-Canadian fighter to disintegrate to the canvas.

He let Wilder know he was there and shouted some verbals at him straight after he scored a 1st round KO over Bermane Stiverne.

Dmitry Bivol won the WBA world light-heavyweight title in a wide-open division to signal his intentions, securing a 10th knockout in 12 fights by stopping Australia's Trent Broadhurst in the very first round.

Talk has been rife of Wilder facing British heavyweight Anthony Joshua.

Just like Golovkin-Canelo and Mayweather-Pacquiao before it, Wilder-Joshua is what the fans, broadcasters and media want. Do you accept my challenge?. A king takes kings.

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".

"I declare war upon you [Anthony Joshua]. Is you up for the test?"

"A king doesn't chase the peasants".

"I want Joshua. If he doesn't give me the fight we have other plans".

It was a supreme display by Wilder, who was itching to make a statement as he goes in search of a bout against Anthony Joshua. "No more dodging, no more dodging, no more excuses ... make the date, don't wait". "Don't you want to see one champion, one face one name?"

Ortiz could be almost 40 by the time he contests titles again while England's Tyson Fury is five or six stones overweight and a long way from title contention, despite all his regular promises on social media of winning back the titles in 2018.

Maybe Dominic Breazeale. The American is No. 6 in the WBC rankings and fought on the Wilder-Stiverne undercard, registering an eighth round win over fellow Joshua victim Eric Molina. Why should I go to England to fight a peasant without the king on the contract?
