Wilder, who remains undefeated with 38 knockouts, has been nearly begging for his shot at unified heavyweight champ Anthony Joshua and he went after him again after the win at the Barclays Center on Saturday night.

The Olympic bronze medalist from Alabama had won the title from Stiverne on points when they first met almost three years ago, on the night Wilder became the first American to capture a piece of the heavyweight championship in almost a decade. "Don't you see? I am the most feared".

"Joshua has speed, he has timing and he has incredible power".

Wilder was so upset over the change of opponent that at the final pre-fight news conference on Thursday he promised a knockout in graphic terms, saying: "The ambulance better be ready".

"You just have to side with Joshua every day of the week, there are just so many KOs on his record". I know I am the best but I wanna prove I am the best. The boxing fans deserve it.

Moyes, 54, has been handed an initial six-month contract. "Let's get the job done and then talk at the end of the year".

He continued: "A king don't chase the peasants".

He told Sky Sports: "I was really interested to see the weight of Deontay Wilder on the scales [220 pounds].I texted that to Anthony today". A king takes kings.

There is a huge prospect of Wilder facing Anthony Joshua next year and that contest could be worth as much alone than he has earned in his career to date. I want Joshua. If he doesn't give me the fight we have other plans. No more dodging, no more excuses.

Guess we'll just have to wait and see, eh?

The 32-year-old was quick to get behind his spiteful and rangy jab, snapping Stiverne's head back in the first minute, waiting for the opportunity to bring his punishing right hand into play.

"No heavyweight can compare to me, I move like a middleweight. the things I can do in the ring and what I see is insane, I' m very confident in what I do".

Stiverne looked totally out of it as he was moved to his stool. "It takes a lot of courage, it takes a lot of pride to step in the ring with someone like me". For that, he was paid $506,250.

But the Stiverne who climbed through the ropes on Saturday was a silhouette of the fighter in their first meeting, the first and only time Wilder has been extended the distance before or since.

Wilder would have preferred to face Ortiz (27-0, 23 KOs), but he tested positive for two banned diuretics (chlorothaizide, hydrochlorothiazide) in a random urine test conducted by the Voluntary Anti-Doping Association on September 22, and was dropped from the fight.
