Anthony Joshua has said he would be willing to take on Deontay Wilder after his rematch with Oleksandr Usyk.

The Brit is set to face Usyk after triggering the rematch clause, following the loss of his WBA, WBO, IBF and IBO titles to the Ukrainianlast month.

Joshua’s defeat to Usyk means a long-awaited, all-British undisputed with Fury is off the table, for the time being.

The Gypsy King beat Wilder in their Las Vegas trilogy fight after coming back from a double knockdown to defend his title for the first time.

But, while all roads point towards a mouth-watering undisputed showdown against WBC champion Fury for the winner of the Joshua-Usyk rematch, AJ is considering taking on Fury’s former opponent before finally facing the Gypsy King himself.

“If the fans can’t see I would take these fights with the fighters like Wilder in a heartbeat,” Joshua told iFL TV.

“And I want people to know that I would fight anyone in their prime or anytime.

“Give me a mandatory and I will fight anyone, I love the game and will fight anyone.

“I will take on any challenge providing politics aren’t an issue and the finances are there with these guys, people know what I am about.

“I think Wilder fought (Tyson) Fury thinking it was going to be easier than his previous fights and got caught in a trilogy web.

“But would I fight Wilder, yes I would.”
