Tyson Fury dismisses Joshua-Parker fight as 'joke'

Joshua's words seemed to take a little dig at Tyson Fury who wants to fight him in the future

Anthony Joshua was taken the distance for the first time in his career but put in a composed performance to earn a points victory over Joseph Parker in the unification clash in Cardiff.

Joshua's win should move him closer to a bout against Deontay Wilder, the American who holds the World Boxing Council's version of the heavyweight title.

Ahead of Joshua vs. Parker, a lot of the talk surrounded WBC world heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder. "People say I'm unorthodox, I do everything wrong and I don't have proper technique, but the bottom line is that I have the ultimate power to knock everybody out, which is scary".

But Wilder did cause controversy over the weekend with a vile remark about wanting "a body" on his record.

As the home fighter and the headline name on the card, Joshua is set to pocket the majority of the fight purse. Fury hasn't fought since being suspended in 2016 due to drug and medical issues.

Parker was reluctant to talk to the Kiwi media on his way to the bus but did say he was grateful for the support he has received from New Zealand and Samoa.

Joshua said: "Wilder had the WBC belt when [Wladimir] Klitschko was still fighting".

"But with them, they are so erratic and unpredictable, I don't know what to believe".

The Hubble Space Telescope's Advanced Camera for Surveys acquired this image, which is via NASA , ESA, and P. van Dokkum, Yale. It doesn't fit the characteristics of a spiral galaxy, which typically have dense, central regions, spiral arms, and a disk.

"It is not really about Wilder, it is more about us sitting down over the next two weeks and planning out the rest of 2018".

Taking Joshua across the Atlantic would be more about promoting Joshua in the U.S. than acceding to Wilder demands. "I tried to speak to him when he came down the back and he had no idea or understanding of the question I asked him".

"I know fans want blood but sometimes it's just not there".

"I want[Deontay] Wilder or [Tyson] Fury". If Wilder's camp stepped up and were actually serious about the fight and serious about a deal, we are more than fair to offer them.

"Ref seemed too hurried to break them up at times", tweeted former undisputed heavyweight champion Lennox Lewis. "We have to sit down in the next two weeks and see if there's that fight in the summer". "[Promoter Eddie Hearn] said he'd make it".

I'd fight [Povetkin] next.

Almost a stone lighter than in his last fight, against Takam, he moved with noticeably more nimbleness, in and out of range, and generally looked sharper.

Barry Hearn, chairman and founder of Joshua's promoters Matchroom, said he thinks negotiations "will start next week" - but Bunce thinks there will not be a bout any time soon. As the affable loser said: "I fought good, but he was the better man on the day".
