Dominant Wilder demands unification bout against Joshua

Deontay Wilder declared "war upon" Anthony Joshua after obliterating Bermaine Stiverne in the first round of their heavyweight title fight in NY.

American Wilder appeared to dismiss the prospect of fighting Britain's Dillian Whyte, who last weekend won an eliminator to put himself in a prime position to compete for a world title by claiming the vacant WBC silver heavyweight crown.

Officials aid Bermane Stiverne after Deontay Wilder knocked him out.

Wilder would have preferred to face Ortiz, but Ortiz tested positive for two banned diuretics, chlorothaizide and hydrochlorothiazide, in a random urine test conducted by the Voluntary Anti-Doping Association on September 22, he was dropped from the fight.

Wilder showed his opponent no mercy. But this finish was violently definitive and Wilder explained his frustrations afterward.

"I know I am the best but I wanna prove I am the best".

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

Stiverne tried - knocked down once more by another big right hand - and a final flurry from Wilder with seconds remaining in the round ended the bout.

Just 20 seconds later, he sent Stiverne back to the canvas with a heavy right hand that landed like a club to the side of the head. It was elementary at that point.

Wilder came out firing with a stiff left jab as Stiverne fought off the back foot looking for opportunities to counter.

With the win, Wilder improves to 39-0 with his 38th knockout.

"I've been waiting on that fight for a long time now", Wilder said.

"A-Juicin"-J. Listen, "mate, ' I declare war upon you", said Wilder".

Wilder may lack a name on his record like Wladimir Klitschko, who Joshua stopped in the 11th round in April. "Do you accept my challenge, or are you still gonna squat as you piss?"

Ortiz could be almost 40 by the time he contests titles again while England's Tyson Fury is five or six stones overweight and a long way from title contention, despite all his regular promises on social media of winning back the titles in 2018. I know I'm the champion. "Are you up for the test?"

While there may be other opponents out there, Wilder only has his sights set on one fighter.

"King's don't chase peasants". A king takes kings.

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". Joshua, come and see me baby.

"No more diving, no more ducking, no more dodging".
