The Brit beat Kiwi Joseph Parker via unanimous points decision to add his WBO title to his own WBA, IBO and IBF belts.

But the London 2012 Olympic champion was in more considered mood at the post-fight press conference. He has already visited NY for negotiations but it gets complicated with Wilder's affairs being handled by co-managers Shelly Finkel and Al Haymon, and Haymon's business partner Luis DeCubas Jr.

As the home fighter and the headline name on the card, Joshua is set to pocket the majority of the fight purse.

A war-of-words has already erupted, with Wilder taking to his Instagram account to accuse Joshua of running scared.

"Joseph won't give up now - he's still young, competitive and I think we will definitely see Joseph Parker again", he told reporters.

"I will go back, train hard and come back stronger".

Parker loses for the first time in a 25 fight career.

"Over the next week we'll put a plan in place, but I think it's very important that over the summer here that we get Joe back in the ring - maybe in August", Barry said.

The unbeaten Wilder took to Twitter after Saturday's contest in front of a 78,000 capacity crowd at the Principality Stadium to insist he was "the baddest man in the world, the baddest man on the planet, and that's fact".

But still, to accept this fight in these circumstances, its speaks volumes about Holloway walking the walk, and not just talking the talk.

"I say my little prayer in the corner, I pray for success and I pray for his health and I pray he'll be safe once he leaves the ring", he said.

Joshua has said he would like the bout to take place in the United Kingdom but Hearn is not ruling out the possibility of it happening in the USA if the terms are right.

This morning's fight was overshadowed by referee Giuseppe Quartarone.

"We would have worked that inside more [without the ref breaking things up repeatedly], but whatever happened here happened".

"I knew he was from Italy but I obviously expected we would have a guy who could communicate with the two participants fighting". We just look forward.

Butt Joshua's trainer McCracken countered: "When he explained the rules for two minutes he spoke English".

"Today I got beat by a better champion, the bigger man", the 26-year-old said, speaking to Sky Sports.

But a game Parker kept going and the boos at the end of the contest appeared to be aimed at the referee rather than the boxers. With him, it's so insane, when I'm in the Bronze Bomber, I don't really care.
