Anthony Joshua has hit back at Deontay Wilder and his team following the American’s controversial draw with Tyson Fury on Saturday night.
The unified world champion was a very interested observer as his two main heavyweight foes squared off in LA, producing a stunning fight with a disputed result.
It might also be the case that Wilder fancies his chances in a punch-out with AJ rather than another go at Fury. As far as AJ is concerned, he will fight anyone. He would love Wilder next and he has always wanted Fury.
‘I am going out to LA and we will talk (with Wilder’s representatives) this week. It is a fight we definitely want for April and will work hard to make.’

A fight in April is possible after Wilder reiterated his willingness to make it happen, but there is a strong clamour for an immediate rematch with Fury.
Both fighters expressed their desire to go again after Saturday’s thriller and Fury’s promoter Frank Warren has already started discussions to make the second bout following his complaint to the WBC over the scoring at the weekend.
In the aftermath of the bout, both Wilder and Fury had harsh words for AJ, but the 29-year-old took particular exception to one article in which the American’s co-manager Shelly Finkel declared they are still “very interested” in facing him next.
“What took this fool so long?” began Joshua in a social media post responding to the comments.
“Like we ain’t been interested?!!”
