Joshua keen to give Fury and Wilder a fair contest

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.

The Olympic champion has responded to Wilder's comments that he is "very interested" in a colossal clash with AJ, and said he is ready whenever to go at it with the American and blames him for the lack of a fight in the past. He would love Wilder next and he has always wanted Fury.

Joshua has a Wembley date booked for April against an opponent yet to be named, with lengthy public negotiations failing between he and Wilder previously.

Wilder knocked down Fury on two occasions during the fight but Fury appeared to have done enough to win on points. But with Tyson, he'll travel - he'll go where the money is, for March, April. From where he's come from, I just really enjoy it.

"I could have given both fighters problems, if I had the chance to fight them". They said it wouldn't go ahead - well it did go ahead, didn't it? "Both the guys put on a tremendous fight", Deas told the BBC.

"I'll give you a fair one when your [sic] ready!" I've worked with Mike Tyson, Frank Bruno, all of those.

That Fury succeeded in performing to such a high level following a period of only 14 unremarkable rounds in three years that featured significant ring-rust, him gaining in weight to 27 stones, taking cocaine and contemplating suicide fully vindicated his trainer Ben Davison.

The champion began to fall short with jabs, and watched Fury comfortably take a left uppercut as he pursued the knockout while his left eye began to swell.

They are likely to fight again next spring, when Fury would become the favourite, posing a greater threat to Anthony Joshua's status as the world's leading heavyweight. I don't know how that was even possible to do but I was like a phoenix rising from the ashes.

I've never seen a worse decision in my life. He did a fantastic job. This performance showed he has convincingly recovered from that, and he may even again prove the best heavyweight in the world.
