Wilder 'very interested' in Joshua fight - Finkel

I don't know what fight the judges were watching.

The Brit's team immediately called for a rematch, suggesting they would protest the judging in the wake of one officials highly controversial scorecard. "I take nothing away from this fight but we won this fight", Wilder wrote on Instagram.

As previously reported, Wilder is not the only option for Joshua in April, as the December 22nd showdown between Dillian Whyte and Dereck Chisora can also produce an opponent for the unified heavyweight champion.

It now remains to be seen what direction Wilder goes in, with a rematch against Fury and the victor facing Joshua later in 2019 one possibility.

Wilder's trainer Jay Deas said his fighter is desperate for a rematch. "But we disagree when people say Joshua isn't the main man in the division anymore and we look forward to him demonstrating it again".

If nothing else, both fighters dramatically raised their profile and proved that the heavyweight division is the glamour division of the sport. Deontay has never had a problem with traveling. "That's not the issue at all".

A date is expected to be agreed in the near future with both Las Vegas and London mooted as potential host cities, though Fury's promoter - veteran Frank Warren - insists his charge will fight Wilder again anywhere, anytime.

Boxing has three brilliant heavyweights and now it's time to see who really is the best.

Wilder twice knocked Fury to the canvas, but the former champion got back to his feet and thought he had done enough to win the fight.

And Finkel established that the American's camp would require talks to be more discreet this time.

Like we ain't been interested?!' Joshua posted on Twitter in response to Finkel's claims.

"If he wants to be professional and keep it in a private discussion, I'm open to it".

"If everything is in the paper, I have no desire to discuss anything, and let him go fight who he wants".

Joshua last fought in September, when he successfully defended his belts by stopping Alexander Povetkin in seven rounds at Wembley.
