Britain's Anthony Joshua (right) throws a punch at Ukraine's Vladimir Klitschko during the 4th round of their IBF, IBO and WBA, world Heavyweight title fight at Wembley Stadium.

As you can see from the video above, Joshua was hanging out with English soccer player Troy Deeney and the two got to challenging on the punching arcade game to test out their power. After all, Joshua's unequivocal capture of the heavyweight torch on Saturday night was just the latest spike yet in British boxing's booming stock.

With his newly-acquired status as the number one fighter in the heavyweight division, Tyson believes Joshua is the only fighter fans will want to see and thinks a fight with WBC titleholder Deontay Wilder is not a good idea.

The second fight between Wladimir Klitschko and Anthony Joshua could take place in exotic stars of professional Boxing in China.

The 27-year-old Joshua defeated Klitschko in the 11th round of their heavyweight contest to extend his record to 19 wins in 19.

The match between Joshua and Klitschko attracted an audience of 90,000 at Wembley and a worldwide television coverage.

It didn't help that everything was festooned with the letters BLAB, which I believe stands for Black Label, something to do with his sponsor, although he was probably just relieved they had abandoned plans for a new fuchsia line.

Warren added that ideally Fury would have a number of warm-up bouts before facing Joshua, despite the former champion's claim he was so unimpressed with Joshua's win over Klitschko that he could fight and beat him without a warm-up.

In Germany, meanwhile, more than 10 million people tuned in to watch the fight for free.

Kubrat Pulev is the mandatory challenger for the IBF crown but a repeat showdown with 41-year-old Klitschko is a much more lucrative option.

Joshua admitted he spent £120 paying off a dry-cleaning bill at his local launderette, explaining to The Mirror: "First off, I've got to pay my bill there". However, the 27-year-old believes he has a long way still to go before he can be compared with a three-time Grand Slam victor, world number one and reigning BBC Sports Personality of the Year.

This will make a good matchup and Parker's trainer, Kevin Barry, seems confident that his fighter is better than Joshua.

"It was an excellent fight, very entertaining and enjoyable and I was screaming for AJ to smash him", he exclusively told Sky Sports.
