Anthony Joshua has set his sights on the final piece of the jigsaw of claiming the WBC heavyweight title from American rival Deontay Wilder.

Joshua secured a unanimous points victory over Joseph Parker in Cardiff to unify the WBA, IBF, WBO and IBO title, leaving just Wilder as a rival world heavyweight champion.

I think 2018 was about getting all the belts and we are one away now.

And Joshua is ready to take on Wilder to try and become the undisputed king of the heavyweights.

He told reporters at ringside after a comfortable victory over New Zealander Parker: "This is what it's all about, our side are serious about the negotiations.

"I think 2018 was about getting all the belts and we are one away now. Look at every one of these belts now, I will have to be the most powerful man on a negotiating table."

Meanwhile, Joshua was pleased with his performance against Parker at the Principality Stadium, with the three judges scoring the fight 118-110, 118-110 and 119-109.

He added: "I knew how to break him down and put him in a position so he couldn't give much back. Every time he came forward I just rammed that jab in his face.

"I know the expectations of what I can achieve are very possible but without dedication they won't happen. The sky is the limit.

"I'm not elated because I don't let the highs get to my head. We have to go again soon and there's a lot more to come.

"If I can keep controlling fighters like that, I will be about a long time."

Meanwhile, David Haye is 4/11 to win his rematch with Tony Bellew in early May, with Bellew 11/5 to win the fight and 11/2 to do so on a decision or a technical decision.
