Anthony Joshua has confirmed he is interested in taking on fellow Brit Tyson Fury in his next fight, Sky Sports report.
The 29-year-old, who defeated mandatory challenger Alexander Povetkin in September, is expected to next step inside the ring on April 13 at Wembley Stadium, however, the current IBF, IBO, WBA and WBO champion is without a confirmed opponent.
Fury, WBC champion Deontay Wilder, Dillian Whyte and Jarrell ‘Big Baby’ Miller have all been linked with the bout with Joshua in three months’ time.
And talking on The Graham Norton Show, Joshua admitted he would be interested in taking on Fury next.
When asked about taking on Fury in an all-British showdown, Joshua said:
That would be massive. I would love to.
The fight that Wilder and Fury had, I felt that Fury won, so it would be amazing to have two British heavyweights and we would be combining the belts up.
In the eyes of a lot of people, Fury is a champion as such.
We’re the top three, so I would love to fight him. Even though he hasn’t got a belt, it’s still fighting one of the top three.
Despite Joshua renewing his interest in a bout with Fury, it looks extremely likely that the self-proclaimed ‘Gypsy King’ will face off against Wilder next, however, the winner of the rematch could almost guarantee a clash with Joshua before the end of the year.
