"That's why I've got to put on my dancing shoes and be sharp with my feet", said Joshua after the last face-to-face appearance between the two before they meet in the ring.

The confusion of that situation with the WBC, coupled with the fact Wilder next faces Tyson Fury and likely has a rematch clause if he were to lose, makes it unclear if Whyte will ever get a shot at the belt.

Joshua will pocket more than £15m from tonight's match. The Englishman retained his WBA (Super), IBF, WBO (Super), and IBO heavyweight titles against Alexander Povetkin earlier today.

"We're in the same division, we're in the same era, it would be silly not to fight", Joshua said at a news conference.

The worry for the challenger as the fight wore on was that his best chance for a knockout looked to have passed him by.

Anthony Joshua has given Deontay Wilder a deadline of December to agree terms to face him on April 13.

"I'm a physical, strong guy".


"All I want to fight is serious challengers. I would fight Fury if he's ready". "We've both done a lot of talking and I'm here now", said Joshua.

But if we're being honest, a big part of what has made this new era so much fun, featuring three super heavyweights all standing above 6-foot-6 and all now claiming at least a piece of the heavyweight crown, has been how incredibly vulnerable each can be despite their obvious talent.

This fight saw Joshua returning to the scene of arguably his greatest triumph, an 11th-round stoppage of former champion Wladimir Klitschko previous year.

Another one landed in the third, nicely timed over Joshua's jab, with the Brit fully aware that he was now in a fight. So at the end of the day, we have to fight each other.

"If it's not Deontay Wilder then it will be Whyte here on April 13".

Joshua first wobbled Povetkin with a right hand, followed by a left before the telling left hook and right hand sent the challenger crashing to the canvas.

Promoters Haymon Boxing said in a statement reported by USA media that Wilder and Fury would meet at a venue to be determined. "It may have took seven rounds, 10 rounds or 12 rounds, but ultimately I'm going to be victorious because I know how to dig in".
