However, with Wilder and Fury likely to strike a deal for a re-match, Dillian Whyte is considered a more likely opponent for Joshua's Wembley show.
The result means the American is still in a position to achieve his dream of unifying the heavyweight division against Fury's fellow Briton Anthony Joshua, who holds the WBA, IBF and WBO versions of the title.
Fury largely outboxed Wilder for the first half of the bout until a short right hand caught him on the temple and dropped him early in Round 6.
Joshua's promoter, Eddie Hearn, has gone to Los Angeles this week and says he is hoping to talk about an April date between his fighter and Wilder.
Listen 100 per cent we'll do the rematch, but we're going to go away, recalculate, see what's going to happen, get back together, said Fury.
Arriving in Auckland from Las Vegas this morning ahead of his fight with Mexican-American Alexander Flores on December 15 in Christchurch, Parker spoke about how he viewed the fight, saying: "Watching that fight, I wanted to be in there".

Vince said a lot has changed since the XFL launched 20 years ago, and he said the XFL was ahead of its time. In all, eight cities will get an XFL squad: Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles, New York, Seattle, St.
Fury doesn't think Wilder is as keen as him on a rematch.
Frank Warren, who promotes Fury, said he and the British Boxing Board of Control would write to the WBC demanding another bout.
"Everybody out there who has the same problems I've been suffering with, I did that for you guys".
Wilder retained his WBC heavyweight title after the judges returned a split decision that earned much ire from pundits and fans, with most considering Fury the victor despite having to twice climb off the canvas.
"We're very interested in the fight [with Joshua]", Finkel told Sky Sports. I just wanted the best for boxing here in America and boxing in general - which lead me to get overly anxious to knock his head off so I abandoned the game plan.
"I'll give you a fair one when your [sic] ready!"
