Promoters believe Anthony Joshua could go on to be as popular as his hero Muhammad Ali, as they hatch plans to make him one of sport's biggest stars.

However, the unbeaten Joshua recovered and hit Klitschko with a penultimate-round barrage that sent the 41-year-old to the deck twice more before the referee called a halt to an enthralling contest. But Tyson believes Joshua has what it takes to reign atop the division for a long time and bring the big men back into the big time.

The 28-year-old is now prohibited from fighting professionally in the United Kingdom but he jokingly told boxing website britishboxers.co.uk on Fridaythat he would make UKAD an "offer they can't refuse" ahead of the hearing.

The dissection of Anthony Joshua's thrilling heavyweight world title fight continues with the former undisputed champion giving his thoughts.

In Tyson's own words, one fighter has seemingly altered what was a bleak landscape for boxing.

"It's good actually", said Joshua. The Ukrainian rode the momentum into the sixth round, knocking Joshua down with a straight right early and hurting him badly.

Once dubbed the "Baddest Man on the Planet", Tyson reignited the heavyweight division in the 1980s with a ferocious 37-fight win streak.

"It was great fight because he got back up!" he says.

David Moyes: Sunderland manager to stay, but Jermain Defoe could leave
Moyes admitted early on in his tenure at the Stadium of Light that Sunderland could struggle this season. Pienaar said: "This is my first one [relegation] and it is the hardest thing to take in my career".

"The fans want the Fury fight and I do, too".

The 28-year-old hasn't boxed since beating Wladimir Klitschko in November 2015 and is now without a boxing licence, but he has been training in Spain in an attempt to get back into the ring.

"I think that he should go in that ring to fight a B level, maybe B-plus type fighter where the threat would still be there, but not an A-plus fighter like Joshua".

"I can be the best Tyson Fury again, it didn't slip away, I just couldn't be bothered no more, it was s*** and I didn't value it, but now there's £30m involved".

"Going to keep you all updated on my progress". Once it is done, and if that is Anthony Joshua, the UAE could become a main hub for boxing.

With his transcendent appeal and ferocious physical attributes, the Olympic gold medallist leads a pack of hungry heavyweights with names like Fury, WBC title holder Deontay Wilder and WBO champ Joseph Parker all potential opponents.

'Can I ever see a time that it will be Ali, Foreman, Holmes, Joshua?

"Of course we have a rematch in the contract".
