See how Anthony Joshua transformed Wembley in time lapse

Nigeria's Federal Government plans to invite Anthony Oluwafemi Joshua, the boxing world heavyweight champion to the country soon.

The 41-year-old Ukrainian insists a re-match clause exists within his fight contract with Joshua, and indicated yesterday that he is keen to renew hostilities with the Briton.

It would seem like it's unification, lucrative rematch or bust for Joshua as there's been little to no mention of the mandatory challengers he now has waiting in line.

Joshua added the WBA title to his IBF crown and focus has now switched to the identity of his next opponent.

Talking to Sky Sports News after Joshua's 11th round knockout victory over Wladimir Klitschko, Fury said: "The biggest fight in the world [right now] is me and AJ, no one else".

Cuba's Ortiz went so far as to predict that he would finish the London 2012 gold medallist inside eight rounds should Joshua and his team opt to accept his challenge, before suggesting that Joshua got lucky last weekend.

Hearn said: "In terms of worldwide stardom, I said "you win this fight and you become the biggest star in British sport and the biggest star in world boxing".

"It's up to him, I don't mind".

"Look, it's simple. Eddie will protect his cash cow". "I know he's been talking, I want to give 90,000 a chance to see us".

'There can only ever be one heavyweight, especially in our part of the world, and it's me. I wish I would [have] raised my hand instead of being someone that didn't make it and win the titles back. "If they wouldn't have stopped it he was gassed out again - plain and simple".

After defeating Klitschko, Joshua said: "Tyson Fury where you at baby?".

"I would just like to congratulate AJ for getting through the nip-and-tuck, life-and-death situation, against an old man, so well done".

"We all saw [Joshua] had a life and death situation against Klitschko, but Klitschko couldn't land a glove on me", said Fury. When you listen to him, he does appear to be very grounded and very aware of where he wants to get to and the best way of doing that.
