Deontay Wilder has called out fellow world heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua after the American defeated Germane Stiverne on Saturday night.

Wilder was so upset over the change of opponent that at the final prefight news conference on Thursday promised a knockout in graphic terms, saying, "The ambulance better be ready".

Asked about the prospect of a fight still being on the cards, Hearn told Sky Sports News: "I think 2018, we want to see Deontay Wilder against Anthony Joshua, no question. I know I am the best but I want to prove I am the best".

Wilder had lost out on the opportunity for two marquee fights because his opponents - first Alexander Povetkin a year ago and then Luis "King Kong" Ortiz last month - failed drug tests. 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.

It didn't take long for Wilder to impose his will.

Wilder hopes this win will land him a super fight with Anthony Joshua in a heavyweight showdown the boxing world is dying to see. "So many guys ducking me and so many guys using PEDs", said Wilder.

The 32-year-old Wilder delivered an explosive performance as he floored Stiverne two times in the opening round before finishing him off with a punishing right-left to the head, as the defenceless Canadian was pinned against the ropes.

Promoter Eddie Hearn suggested last month that Wilder should face Dillian Whyte in London on February 3, to drum up interest in a summer fight with Joshua. They trying to give me the peasant without the king on the contract.

"They have a great thing going over there but they have to come to fight me".

"I've been waiting on the fight for a long time, listen "AJ", I declare war on you".

"I been waiting on that boy for a long time now". No more dodging, no more excuses.

"A king don't chase the peasants", Wilder said post-Stiverne. I'm saying it because two unbeaten heavyweights, one unified champion, one lineal champion, both over six foot six tall, both over 18 stone. "Make a date, don't wait", Wilder said.
