Hope he fights Wilder next. It looks like Fury will never get his act together so the only fight out there is surely the Wilder one.

Joshua is pretty much unbeatable to be honest. Somebody might come along in a few years that changes that, but he will have it handy the next 3/4 years.
I would disagree. I think he's the best at the moment but not by a huge margin. I think he's better than Wilder but Wilder could KO him. Joshua was rocked by Dillian Whyte. Would be really interested to see him in with a fully fit and focused Tyson Fury too.

Would like to see Wilder v Whyte and Joshua v Parker next, then the winners meet and by that stage hopefully Fury is in decent shape and can get a tune up fight or two in too.

I'd love to see him fight Fury too, but the big problem is that if he beats Parker and Wilder then there isn't going to be much of a challenge in the forseeable future. 

Most fighters get hurt at some stage, and with the power the heavyweights have its inevitable that you can be hurt in any fight.  Wilder caught him with a good shot but he took it well and he recovered well against Klitschko too.  Wilder could land one of his wild swings on him but Wilder will be hit harder than he ever has before and won't have the same size advantage he has had over the fighters he has previously fought.

Like the rest of you I would also like to see Fury get himself back on track.

I do think the fight will happen though - Serious money could be made of it and that'll get it over the line.....eventually.

Fury says he's coming back.

He changes his mind every week plus he isnt allowed to fight anyway.

I assume this tweet means that he is now allowed to fight

Fury says he weighs 25 stone at the minute . . . it's a long way back from that to being a Heavyweight champ especially against a young strong and fit Joshua. I just can't see it.

Will the young lad Dubois who dropped Joshua in sparring not be a shout over the next few years??

Dubois looks like a good prospect alright but is only 20 and you would imagine he'll have another 10 or so fights before going after any top heavyweight.

Watched the fight as live this morning, didn't realise I was in for such a short shift! End of 1st round knockout. Opponent ropey enough but Wilder is certainly no dummy, 'freakish power' as Andy Lee said. He's like Clubber Lang the way he went in for the kill. He'd give AJ all he wants. Next Summer Blockbuster or will they string it along for another year or two?

Joshua has 'freakish power' and is twice the boxer Wilder is. It will be a very comfortable night's work for Joshua. Wilder will give him all he wants in terms of a big pay day, but that's where it'll end.

Eddie Hearn wants Wilder to fight Chisora or Whyte to prove himself😊 Must be on the wind up. Think Hearn is trying to Tee up Wilder for a future blockbuster but wants to create (fabricate) a rivalry first.

Watched Whyte v Chisora  again (Bad Blood show on Sky), that was some fight. Not surprised Wilder wants to dodge Whyte and go straight for AJ - he mightn't get past him.
