DEONTAY WILDER warned fellow world champions Anthony Joshua and Joseph Parker that he is ready to become the first man in history to hold all four major heavyweight titles at once.

Wilder stopped the Cuban southpaw after 2-05 of the 10th round here at the Barclays Center to set up a showdown with the winner of Joshua-Parker, which takes place at Cardiff’s Principality Stadium on March 31.

Wilder will be ringside in the Welsh capital and hopes to take on the victor at some point later this year to prove who the real heavyweight champion is.
