Deontay Wilder called for a "mega fight" against Anthony Joshua after watching the British heavyweight's dramatic world title victory over Wladimir Klitschko at Wembley.
The WBC champion studied his rival from ringside as Joshua overcame a sixth-round knockdown to sensationally stop Klitschko in the 11th round.
Wilder would welcome a unification clash with Joshua, who now holds the IBF and WBA 'super' titles, and the American suggested he would come back to Britain after witnessing the 90,000 crowd.
"Like I said before, it's all about unification now," he told Sky Sports. "I want to do my thing and go get those other belts.
Every time I come over here I get much love, so if I had to come over here, I would come with open arms, without hesitation.
"At the end of the year, we have a mega fight. Winner takes all, considered the best man on the planet.
"I'm very comfortable over here. I love coming over here. Every time I come over here I get much love, so if I had to come over here, I would come with open arms, without hesitation."
Tony Bellew was reunited with Wilder as part of the Sky Sports Box Office team after the two men had clashed angrily at the weigh-in.
The pair expressed mutual respect on this occasion, with Wilder admitting he would welcome a fight against the Merseysider to set up a future showdown with Joshua.
"I'm down for whatever," said Wilder. "You beat David Haye, that's put you on your high horse. A fight with me and you, that's what the fans are beating up right now.
"I'm down for whatever, Tony. Whatever the fans want. What better way to make my name even bigger in England?"
