Deontay Wilder sent a message to Anthony Joshua with a brutal knockout win against Bermane Stiverne in New York. The WBC champion retained his title thanks to a crushing uppercut and right hook that sent Stiverne straight to sleep. It was a brutal finish with just three seconds left in the first round, and on the back of two successive knockdowns.

Joshua covets Wilder’s WBC crown and there is talk of a summer 2018 showdown. And the undefeated American king talked directly to the IBF and WBA (Super) champion after the fight. ‘I know I am the best. Are you up for the test?,’ asked Wilder of Joshua.

‘I’ve been waiting on that fight for a long time now. ‘I declare war upon you. Do you accept my challenge?’ Eddie Hearn wants Wilder to fight Dillian Whyte before facing Joshua, but the 32-year-old wants the crack at Britain’s best.

‘They are trying to give me a peasant in Whyte,’ he said. ‘A king doesn’t chase the peasants. ‘A king takes kings. I want Joshua. If he doesn’t give me the fight we have other plans.

‘The world wants Joshua, the world wants Wilder, I want Joshua. Joshua come and see me baby. ‘No more dodging, no more excuses. Make the date, don’t wait. Let’s see who is the best.’
