Anthony Joshua breaks silence on Tyson Fury's draw with Deontay Wilder

Boxers Deontay Wilder left and Tyson Fury face each other at a pre-fight news conference in Los Angeles

Joshua has the IBF, WBA "super", WBO and IBO heavyweight belts that Wilder is seeking.

"If anything, the way that fight went on Saturday works in our favour in terms of getting Wilder". Fury got up quickly and rallied to almost winning back the round as Wilder appeared as if he might've punched himself out going for the finish.

Joshua's promoter Hearn has maintained that Wilder is the No 1 choice of opponent for the unified champion's next scheduled title defence at Wembley Stadium on April 13. He'll go where the money is, for March, April. From where he's come from, I just really enjoy it.

"They said he wasn't going to sell any tickets".

In front of a 17,698-strong attendance, both fighters entertained from the opening bell when they both threw threatening punches and Wilder landed a hurtful right as they briefly fought toe-to-toe. They said it wouldn't go ahead - well it did go ahead, didn't it?

If nothing else, both fighters dramatically raised their profile and proved that the heavyweight division is the glamour division of the sport. It was one of the most exciting fights - certainly the most exciting I've seen at heavyweight in America since Lennox Lewis-Vitali Klitschko (in 2003). I've worked with Mike Tyson, Frank Bruno, all of those.

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.

When Will Fury or Wilder Fight Joshua?

Despite two heavy knockdowns, a victory greater than even that over Wladimir Klitschko and after only 14 rounds following over two-and-a-half traumatic years of inactivity was prevented by harsh scores of 115-111, 112-114 and 113-113, despite him impressively outboxing the champion, who retains his title.

I've never seen a worse decision in my life. Did you, son? He didn't fold. I don't know how that was even possible to do but I was like a phoenix rising from the ashes. He did a fantastic job. "If this man ain't the highest candidate for trainer of the year, then I haven't seen one".
