The man known as B-Ware had previously been the only man to avoid being knocked out by Wilder, but that dramatically changed with the Bronze Bomber destroyed Stiverne in one brutal round.
Wilder (39-0, 38 KOs) dropped Stiverne (25-3-1, 21 KOs), a former WBC champion and the mandatory challenger for his title, three times on his way to a first-round knockout at Barclays Center in Brooklyn.
However, the WBC champ has not really made great progress with his purses as he earned $1.5m (£1.1m) for fighting the little-known Artur Szpilka in January 2016.
"This is gonna be the Biggest fight in Boxing right here, who you with?"I want Joshua. If he don't give me the fight we have other plans ... why should I go to England to fight a peasant without the king on the contract?
"The world wants Joshua, the world wants Wilder, I want Joshua".
"You look at the knockouts he's had compared to the knockouts that Wilder's had and it tells the story". The victor of Joshua-Wilder is the real heavyweight champion.
But it was Eddie Hearn who broke the news to Joshua over Wilder's weight before revealing the champ's reply. "I think the public are going to relish the thoughts of making this fight happen".

Kakehi first Wednesday at the age of 24, launching a fabric-printing company in Osaka Prefecture with her first husband. But her lawyers reportedly plan to appeal to a higher court, suggesting the high-profile trial could yet drag on.
Although a Joshua-Wilder heavyweight title unification fight is not expected to be next for either fighter, it's the fight which many boxing fans want to happen. The boxing fans deserve it. "Let's see who is the best".
"No more dodging, no more dodging, no more excuses".
Guess we'll just have to wait and see, eh?
Wilder wants to dispense with the interim fight and go right to a showdown with Joshua, which is easily the biggest heavyweight fight in boxing and maybe the biggest fight in the sport, period.
"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". Make the date, don't wait.
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.
"I'm too athletic, I'm mobile, I'm hostile, I have the heart of a lion. I'm very confident in what I do and tonight I showed that". We do what we have to do in the ring, at least he is a clean fighter and he stepped up.
