Joshua goes the distance and wins in world heavyweight clash

Anthony Joshua (20-0, 20 KO) and Joseph Parker (24-0, 18 KO's) midnight will determine the owner of the titles WBA Super, IBF, IBO, WBO.

Anthony Joshua unified three of the world's heavyweight titles courtesy of a unanimous points decision against Joseph Parker at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff this evening.

"Today I got beat by a better champion, the bigger man", the 26-year-old said, speaking to Sky Sports.

Joshua refused to rise to Wilder's comments, including a previous remark when the American said he wanted a "body" on his record.

This is the only the second heavyweight unification title bout between unbeaten fighters, after Mike Tyson against Tony Tucker in 1987.

"When I watch boxing and I go back years ago and I see certain fighters win titles and they drop to their knees crying and all that stuff - I've never really done that but I think this will be a real emotional time because we're creating history".

Hearn, chairman and founder of Joshua's promoters Matchroom, told BBC Radio 5 Live's Sportsweek programme: "I think negotiations will start next week".

Just ask Deontay Wilder, who now holds the lone belt missing from Anthony's resume, the WBC heavyweight world title.

"This was about boxing finesse - I stuck to my word". I'm not in the business of hype, hype, hype.




"I would love to have another go".

A who's who of the fight world hit social media to complain. "I am the man". A matchup between the two would decide the undisputed world heavyweight champion.

Barry said the Parker camp had received plenty of positive messages. For me, that's not my thing.

"If they stepped up and were actually serious about the fight, and serious about a deal we are more than happy to offer them, it could happen next". That particular matchup is slated to be one of the biggest heavyweight fights of all time, and could very well take place sometime next year in Joshua's home of England.

Speaking to the Breakfast Club morning show on NY radio station Power 105.1 FM, the 32-year-old stated a vulgar ambition of wanting to kill an opponent when he is in fight mode.

"If his team step up, it could happen next".

Parker had noticeably increased his work-rate, although Joshua still held control and he got a quickfire combination going at the end of round eight which ended a quiet spell for the British star.

'It's hard to criticise him but he's still got a lot to learn.
