Anthony Joshua has stated that if the opportunity arises after his rematch with Oleksandr Usyk, he will accept a fight with Deontay Wilder next year.

After a heartbreaking defeat in London last month, the British-Nigerian boxer will seek instant redemption in a rematch with Usyk early next year.

A win over Usyk might pave the way for a rematch with Fury or even a crack at Wilder whenever he returns from injury. However, the 31-year-old has stated that he will fight “anyone” and would welcome a bout with the “Bronze Bomber” if the opportunity arises.

“I would take these bouts with boxers like Wilder in a heartbeat if the fans couldn’t see,” Joshua told IFL TV. “And I want everyone to know that I would fight anyone at any time, even if they were in their prime. Give me a necessary fight, and I’ll fight anyone; I enjoy the game and will fight anyone.

“I’ll take on any challenge as long as politics aren’t an issue and the funds are there; these men know who I am. I believe Wilder fought Fury under the mistaken belief that it would be easier than his prior battles, and he became entangled in a trilogy web.

“However, absolutely, I would fight Wilder.”

Prior to the start of the Fury and Wilder trilogy in 2018, Joshua had been linked to the American.
