Wilder is now the reigning WBC heavyweight champion, and he mentioned that he is willing to put his belt on the line just for a chance to fight Joshua as he believes it would be "the biggest mega-fight in world history". But Tyson believes Joshua has what it takes to reign atop the division for a long time and bring the big men back into the big time.

Boxing has been struggling to find a new heavyweight champion who can captivate a worldwide audience for years.

Bernard Hopkins says boxing is in "fantastic shape" following Anthony Joshua's thrilling victory over Wladimir Klitschko and believes "the sky is the limit" for the undefeated Briton.

"He's a nice guy but he's got to stop being a nice guy soon", Tyson told ESPN.

"I think that if he wants to show that this is the way he wants to go out, like I wanted to do with no regrets, I think he deserves and [has] paid his dues to be able to write the script for how he wants to go out, [rather] than how he went out [against Joshua]". And Klitschko, you've got to give credit to him.

The move comes as the U.S.is in talks with Iraqi leaders over plans to keep an enduring American presence there also. The official was not authorized to discuss the letters publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity.

The NSA is also planning to delete "the vast majority" of previously acquired "upstream" internet communications ASAP, it said. A single call would be counted as two records because they were submitted separately by the two companies handling the call.

Trump tax plan leaves Congress, Ryan with heavy lift
History proved that it's a bankrupt theory to believe tax cuts for the rich will lead to prosperity for the middle class. Now it just has to figure out how to get Congress on board - and the White House might need Democrats to do that.

"I like that he's patient, too, he's like Frank Bruno but on steroids (sic)".

He has offered Klitschko a rematch and also has his eyes on an-all British clash with Tyson Fury, who has not fought since spectacularly dethroning Klitschko in November 2015. But man he fought well.

Joshua earned $15 million from the Klitschko fight and now stands to earn more on the strength of the dramatic win.

"I'm out here for the foreseeable future, running, doing circuits, padwork, sparring", said Fury, who told www.britishboxers.co.uk that a match-up with Joshua had been pencilled in for April 2018. That's what boxing is all about but most fighters just don't have that hunger.

"AJ did really well to come back but I am not 41 or getting old". WBC and WBO World Champions - Deontay Wilder and Joseph Parker - have also expressed interest in the fight. Sean Murphy, Joshua's first boxing coach, claimed that his hand sustained a huge scar after Joshua's power penetrated the pads protecting it. Joshua was a natural hitter and Murphy knew from the get go that the kid was destined to become a star. "I've never seen an entrance quite like his before with the flaming "A" and "J", he adds. "In boxing we have one discipline but we use it in different ways but in MMA there's so many different disciplines, it opens up so many different ways to win".
