Joshua reclaimed the heavyweight world titles by beating Andy Ruiz Jr in Saudi Arabia. 'AJ' captured the WBA (super), IBF, WBO and IBO titles and he's eyeing Wilder's WBC belt to complete the set.

And when asked which of his heavyweight rivals he would prefer to face next, the Brit said: "I really don't know. Either one of them, it doesn't matter.

"The preference would be the champion Wilder because it's a championship fight, but Fury is so talented as well and it's the best of British so why not? I'll fight either one of them.

"The dream would be to go for the fifth belt in 2020."

Joshua gained revenge over Ruiz Jr earlier this month, and he spoke about his shock loss in June.

"I feel that if you always look back you can always find a reason as to why you could have done things better, but honestly, I just got beaten by the better man," he added.

"I have to take it on the chin and do it better next time."

Wilder, meanwhile, has also expressed his desire to face the unified heavyweight champion. But he has to take care of business first in the form of a rematch with Fury.

He's set to take on Fury for a second time next year, while Joshua must defend his titles against one of his mandatory challengers.

Will an undisputed heavyweight bout come to fruition in 2020?
