Deontay Wilder sent a message to Anthony Joshua with a spectacular first round knockout win against Bermane Stiverne.

The Olympic bronze medalist from Alabama had won the title from Stiverne on points when they first met almost three years ago, on the night Wilder became the first American to capture a piece of the heavyweight championship in almost a decade. Are you up for the test?

"Joshua has speed, he has timing and he has incredible power".

However, Joshua's trainer Robert McCracken has previously said he would personally like to see Joshua fight Kiwi Joseph Parker the current WBO heavyweight champ before Wilder. You want to do [Joshua-Wilder] at a soccer stadium in the United Kingdom, let's do it. Deontay Wilder will put Anthony Joshua to sleep the same way he just put Stiverne to sleep.

"I think his all-round technical game is better and he is more unsafe with his power". The boxing fans deserve it. Why should I go to England to fight a peasant without the king on the contract?

That's the verdict of Sky Sports boxing pundit Johnny Nelson. It didn't last much longer, as Wilder (39-0, 38 KOs), 31, of Tuscaloosa, Alabama, hammered Stiverne yet again. A king takes kings.

Skip the line: restaurant wait times on Search and Maps
For over a couple of years now, Google has been leveraging data from Google Maps' install base to deliver these sorts of insights. When this feature is available, all you have to do is search for the business name to find current wait times.

Although a Joshua-Wilder heavyweight title unification fight is not expected to be next for either fighter, it's the fight which many boxing fans want to happen. "We don't want to wait".

Eddie Hearn, Joshua's promoter, has repeatedly stated that Joshua-Wilder should take place there at Wembley, while Shelly Finkel, Wilder's manager, has made the case that it should take place in Vegas, as more people in seats doesn't exactly mean more money. I want Joshua. Joshua come and see me, baby. "No more dodging, no more dodging, no more excuses ... make the date, don't wait".

Stiverne, 39, had no answer to a flurry of left-right combination punches from Wilder, 32. Stiverne came to rest along the ropes, and Mercante immediately stopped it.

"You gotta give props to Stiverne for getting in the ring", Wilder said. We do what we have to do in the ring, at least he is a clean fighter and he stepped up.

"When I beat him, I'm not looking for the second time around because it's gonna be so bad and so brutal that the first time is gonna be enough", Wilder said early Sunday morning during the post-fight press conference. He showed up ringside to watch Saturday night.
