Anthony Joshua set for heavyweight showdown with Joseph Parker

"I want to see Joe somewhere around the 108 [kgs]".

Joshua, the IBF and WBA title- holder, stands to make in the region of £15 million for his first fight of 2018, with up to two more bouts lined up for this year.

WBC belt holder Wilder is eager to have a crack at the victor in a division desperate to find a unified champion. "I think Klitschko could have won if he was a little younger". The potential bout with Parker is set to be announced for March and to be held at the Principality Stadium (Millenium Stadium) in Cardiff, Wales.

Joshua, 28 years old, stopped Takam in the tenth round, but he exhausted in the later rounds and didn't perform as well as he did in previous fights. The thing about Parker, he can move.

"I sort of laughed at Anthony's last fight where Eddie Hearn made a statement a couple of days beforehand, and I thought he might have known, when he said we're going to see Anthony come in very light for this fight, and of course he weighed a career heaviest".

Joshua's last fight was a criticised 10th round TKO of Carlos Takam last October.

While the big-hitting Wilder acknowledged Parker's granite chin, he felt the Kiwi had never been in a ring with an opponent of Joshua's power and that would add to the intrigue.

"They're demanding the names and addresses of all my mates who were round that night but I'm not going to give them up".

Parker will be the underdog with the fight expected to be staged in Cardiff, but at 26 years old, the heavyweight is undefeated in 24 professional fights.

Wilder has not been beaten in his career (39-0, 38 KOs) and he will be hunting his 40th career win when he faces Cuban Luis Ortiz at the Barclays Centre in Brooklyn, on March 3 (local time).

"I'm just walking into the door".
