Anthony Joshua has insisted that a fight against Tyson Fury could still happen in the future, even without his world heavyweight titles.
Joshua lost his WBA, IBF and WBO belts to Oleksandr Usyk via a unanimous decision at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Saturday night.
A rematch with Usyk has now been confirmed by his promoter, Eddie Hearn.
But Joshua feels he can still fight Fury with or without his world titles.
“As I said, I’ll fight Tyson Fury, Wilder, without the belts.
“The belts are fun. It’s great, it’s a legacy. But with or without the belts, I’ll fight whoever. The road to undisputed is a nice title to have and a nice title to chase.
“But would you still watch it, without the belts?
“That’s the main thing – is you’ve got two competitive fighters in the ring from UK soil, that just want to go toe-to-toe,” Joshua said at the post-fight press conference.
