Joshua changed boxing with Klitschko victory - Tyson

The biggest heavyweight title fight in more than a decade had a little something for everyone, and Joshua finished off in style. With me and Joshua, one looks the part, one is the part'.

"We are in the business of sweet science".

Meanwhile, Joshua's promoter Eddie Hearn has revealed he would be willing to drop his IBF heavyweight crown to secure a rematch with Klitschko.

Heading into the 12-round heavyweight contest on April 19 with the IBF, IBO and WBA world titles on the line, 27-year-old British boxer Anthony Joshua was the overwhelming favorite with the bookmakers because of his undeniable talent and surrounding hype. I find it really hard to watch, especially when I know someone that is in the fight.

Parker's footwork and fast-hands definitely close the gap on his power-punching comrades, but against either a Wilder or Joshua the fight is one-punch away from ending.

"There is a new king of boxing", he said.

Though Tyson and Joshua share much in common, the pair's personalities are markedly different.

By living up to his pre-ordained hype in a blockbuster bout of worldwide significance, Joshua has helped to inspire the reawakening of the heavyweight giants.

Wilder is the current WBC heavyweight champion and a unification fight between him and Joshua seems like a natural one that can be made in the near future.

Wilder is a great champion and he likes to be active and that would be a tremendous fight. He took a big punch from Klitschko and went down but he got back up.

"Oh he got heart!"

When I went down, I saw his corner and I stuck my tongue out. He's like a super Frank Bruno as far as his toughness and everything.

"I see the comparison, sure", Tyson added. "You've got the championship belts of the world and then you've got the entertainers of the world that haven't got belts at the minute, so it's whatever we want to do".

"The first time when I couldn't watch a fight was when David Haye fought Klitschko".

"AJ is the superstar". Anthony was better today than I. It's really sad that I didn't make it tonight.

Finished in Coventry, England, the boxer's Range Rover is the first in the world to feature the new SVO Design Pack, which provides a broad scope for customers to personalise their vehicle and includes a number of distinct exterior changes, including unique front and rear bumpers, new side vents, side sills and a bespoke grille. It's not just about knocking guys out.

I mean, he's been blabbering about how he thinks that Joshua is the biggest star in world boxing. You can take a guy with nothing, clean them up and next thing he's meeting the President of the United States or the Prime Minister of the UK. It's called the heavyweight division.
