However, with Wilder and Fury likely to strike a deal for a re-match, Dillian Whyte is considered a more likely opponent for Joshua's Wembley show.

His hope is that the sanctioning body order an immediate rematch, but speaking post-fight - having already spoken of his desire for a rematch - Wilder also reiterated his willingness to fight IBF, WBA and WBO champion Anthony Joshua.

The SHOWTIME presentation of the Wilder vs. Fury, a bout that has been hailed as “…the greatest night for boxing in the U.S.in recent memory, ” by Yahoo! After somehow surviving a sustained attack from Ortiz, he slowly recovered and had to come from behind to knock his challenger out in the 10th round, leading to his fight with Fury.

Wilder believed people saw the best Fury could deliver, but they hadn't seen Wilder at his finest, yet he "still managed to get the job done".

"I am going out to LA and we will talk (with Wilder's representatives) this week".

Fury doesn't think Wilder is as keen as him on a rematch. We need to give Britain the biggest fight in British boxing history and that's me and Joshua.

Following the fight he said: "It's an iconic comeback, isn't it?" The guy who gave it 115-111 to Wilder had me losing the first six rounds and I don't know what he was watching.

A date is expected to be agreed in the near future with both Las Vegas and London mooted as potential host cities, though Fury's promoter - veteran Frank Warren - insists his charge will fight Wilder again anywhere, anytime. "I've never seen a worse decision in my life".

However, rather than the rematch the boxing world would undoubtedly love to see, Wilder's team have indicated they have a heavyweight unification bout with Anthony Joshua in their sights.

"I'm quite sure Mr Sulaiman [Mauricio Sulaiman, WBC president] - being the proud Mexican that he is - will want to make sure there is a rematch as his judge got it wrong". That has always been the fight we want because he has the last belt.
