Tyson Fury has joined Anthony Joshua back at the summit of heavyweight boxing after beating Deontay Wilder for the WBC title.

Fury put on a stunning display as he secured a seventh round victory over Wilder in Las Vegas.

His win sets up the mouth-watering possibility of a unification showdown with Joshua, who outpointed Andy Ruiz Jr in Saudi Arabia in December to reclaim the IBF, WBA (Super) and WBO straps.

There are a couple of mandatory titles defences on the horizon for Joshua however with Oleksandr Usyk (WBO) and Kubrat Pulev (IBF) waiting for their shots.

Wilder meanwhile has the option to trigger a rematch clause against Fury later this year.
