-- Tower Bridge opened for the latest heavyweight champion.

Corrie Sanders, speaking from a boat sailing the River Thames, realizes he doesn't have too many big fights left at 37. He said he would like to make the most of it with lucrative bouts in the United States.

The South African shook the heavyweight division 11 days ago by knocking out Wladimir Klitschko in the second round in Hanover, Germany, to win the fringe WBO crown.

On his wish list now are bouts with IBF champion Chris Byrd or WBA champ Roy Jones Jr.

"Las Vegas, Atlantic City, Madison Square Garden -- anywhere in America because that's the heavyweight paradise," Sanders said during his maritime news conference

Until now, Sanders has been unable to get into the mix of title contenders despite the speed and powerful left hand he showed in flooring Klitschko four times.

One opponent definitely out of the question -- at least for now -- is WBC champion Lennox Lewis, who is in talks for a rematch with Mike Tyson in June. Lewis and Sanders are under the same management.

"They are in effect stablemates," said Adrian Ogun, chief executive of the company that promotes the two heavyweights, the Sport Entertainment and Media group.

"I think it would be wrong of us right now," Ogun added. "Corrie has a lot of options and we don't want to close them off. We're going to be canny and we've got a lot of expertise in dealing with the situation. We will look at all the options first before looking at Lennox."

Ogun said he is in talks with HBO, the network that has been handling Lewis's bouts, and is hoping to land a deal with Byrd or Jones. Jones, the former light heavyweight champion, stepped up to take the WBA title from John Ruiz last month.

Sanders said he would even consider a rematch with Klitschko.

"I don't care who they get for me," he said. "Chris Byrd is a great fight. Roy Jones is a guy we're looking for. If I can get Wladimir Klitschko again and the money's right, let's get it on."
