Joshua ready to fight Wilder or Fury - when they are ready

Best of enemies Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury after the fight

Fury, the lineal heavyweight champion, returned from a two-and-a-half-year layoff to score two wins in a span of 10 weeks before facing Wilder.

Wilder twice knocked down Fury, but otherwise struggled against the Briton, who believed he should have won and was outraged with the judges' controversial failure to separate the pair.

If the mega fight does come to fruition it would see the victor - as long as there's no draw at this one - claim the WBC, WBA "super", IBF and WBO Heavyweight belts. I don't know what fight he was watching. They said he wasn't going to sell any tickets.

"I've worked with Mike Tyson, Frank Bruno - all of those". I'll give you a fair one when you're ready! "Both the guys put on a tremendous fight", Deas told the BBC. "Now, Fury's the people's champion".

The thrilling draw at Los Angeles' Staples Center between Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder was the latest classic in a heavyweight division that has emerged from its most forgettable era.

However, Joshua's promoter Eddie Hearn hinted he is travelling to Los Angeles to discuss a potential unification fight with Wilder for the Wembley date in the next year. Should Wilder fill the void, he is given a 2/1 chance with William Hill, making him the underdog against 4/11 favourite Joshua.

Arriving in Auckland from Las Vegas this morning ahead of his fight with Mexican-American Alexander Flores on December 15 in Christchurch, Parker spoke about how he viewed the fight, saying: "Watching that fight, I wanted to be in there". Fury is rated 11/10 against Joshua, according to Paddy Power, with the same company once again siding with AJ at 8/11.

After the bout, Wilder said he would prefer to target Joshua's titles in a bid to unify the division but would be satisfied with either a rematch against Fury or a chance to take on Joshua.

Other than Wladimir Klitschko, Whyte has arguably given Joshua his toughest test in the pro game, and he's a 10/3 shot to beat Joshua next year.
