Wilder and Fury are on a collision course to rematch in 2020. In the meantime, Wilder's set to defend his heavyweight title against Luis Oritz while Fury will face Otto Wallin.
Fury's upcoming opponent doesn't sit well with Joshua whose criticised the Swede's credentials.
"Tyson Fury is fighting Otto Wallin but nobody talks about that. I fought Wallin as an amateur. [Wilder and Fury] are the cream of the crop and shouldn't be fighting those type of people," said Joshua.
"They froze me out. Wilder has [agreed] his next fight with Ortiz, his next fight with Fury.
"And nobody should talk to me about Wilder or Fury after I beat Ruiz Jr, because they have made it clear what they are doing. They have got the whole of 2020 booked up. Until they are free, nobody talk to me about Wilder or Fury."
Anthony Joshua called Tyson Fury's next opponent Otto Wallin 'a low-tier fighter'.
