American reigning WBC heavyweight champion, Deontay Wilder has called out British-Nigerian boxer and world heavyweight Anthony Joshua to come out to 'fight him  or shut up.'

The 32-year-old who defended his title for the sixth time on Saturday defeated Haitian-Canadian professional boxer Bermane Stiverne in the fight that lasted only one round. Watch the knockout fight here.

In a new video Wilder posted on Instagram, he is heard sending a threat to the Brit to stop delaying negotiations as he pushes for a 2018 showdown.

He said: 'Anthony Joshua, you know I'm coming for you. 'There's no need to talk about next year or the year after that or 2020 - 2018 is what you should be worried about. 

'You said if the people want it then you want it. Well, the people want it. Do you? Or do y'all have some hidden agendas? Are y'all hiding anything? 

'We're on it so either fight or shut up. Your promoter (Eddie Hearn) has talked so much. He says you're gonna knock me out in three rounds? Let's see it. 

'I'm ready to dethrone you, I will be heavyweight champion of the world, I will defeat you. Are you up for the challenge?'
