Anthony Joshua solidified his position as the number one heavyweight in the world with an absorbing twelve round decision win against Joseph Parker in front of around 80,000 fans here at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff, Wales.

"I want Wilder. Get him in the ring and I'll knock him spark out", Britain's Joshua said in the ring immediately after judges had scored the fight 118-110, 118-110, 119-109 in his favour.

Joseph Parker goes on the attack against Anthony Joshua in Cardiff.

Reacting to the outcome of the fight, Briton Lewis who was the last heavyweight boxer to hold the undisputed title, hailed Joshua for keeping things simple. He has already visited NY for negotiations but it gets complicated with Wilder's affairs being handled by co-managers Shelly Finkel and Al Haymon, and Haymon's business partner Luis DeCubas Jr. So let's get the business done. Let's see what the future holds, I'm down for whatever, whenever.

The American was not among those present, despite being invited by organisers, opting to watch from afar instead.

In both of his two fights here, it was due to matters out of Joshua's hands. Parker's rally lasted two rounds, before Joshua adjusted sharply, reasserting a comfortable distance and landing with a short left hook and right uppercut on multiple occasions when Parker tried to attack.

Parker's best rounds were the first two and possibly the fifth, but he looked the most unsafe when he was tagged.

"My strategy was to stick behind the jab, that's one of the most important weapons", Joshua told the audience after the fight. "And that secured me another world title belt", he added. "I want one, I really do", said Wilder, citing his ring nickname and alter ego as an unsatisfactory explanation. Can I get a bonus now, do you know what I mean?

"He (Joshua) is a good fighter, and today he showed he could box". "Parker said this would be war, I said this would be boxing finesse". "I stuck to my word and I controlled it behind the jab, the counter-punches".

"Look at what Anthony Joshua is doing".

"I've been running well, training well", said the 2012 Olympic champion, who has a 20-0 record with all his fights won by knockout.

And with all 20 victories coming by knockout, the Brit had been a favourite to end last night's contest early, only to find the sturdy Parker hard to dislodge.
