  • Joshua v Parker: How Twitter reacted to the Cardiff fight night

Anthony Joshua was taken the distance for the first time in his career but put in a composed performance to earn a points victory over Joseph Parker in the unification clash in Cardiff. Browne was stripped of the WBA "Regular" heavyweight title following multiple failed drug tests, and had absolutely nothing for Whyte, who appeared to be fighting a heavy bag.

"My strategy was to stick behind the jab, that's one of the most important weapons", He said after the victory.

Wilder had been due at ringside but didn't show and a confident Joshua, speaking to Sky Sports, after his win was confirmed, said: "I want Wilder".

Forget the hype; Joseph Parker is a world champion so I knew he would be determined. "I was quite impressed with a lot of things Joshua did, held his hands better and was quite hard to hit". Thank you all for the opportunity. "I'm fit to go 12 rounds, thanks to all the New Zealanders here and back home", he added.

And that only means one thing: Becoming undisputed champion by beating big-punching American Deontay Wilder, the WBC champion. I would love to have another go.

The Bomber - who will fight David Haye on May 5 - sent out a very powerful tweet early Sunday morning, reminding boxing fans of Joshua's enormous achievements and stating exactly what he is; the best thing to happen to British boxing. True champion. @anthonyfjoshua, I ACCEPTED 100% .

Both men tried to get their jabs going in the first round, and Joshua began to back Parker up in the closing stages of an opening three minutes that he shaded after dominating the centre of the ring.

"Wilder - Let's go baby, let's go". Joshua was not shy about wanting a fight with Wilder next, but stating it's been tough to negotiate with Wilder and his team and that he shouldn't have to go to America for the fight.

Hearn, meanwhile, added: "I think it (Wilder fight) has to happen in 2018 otherwise we are going to hit some major problems with the politics and the mandatories".
