The 32-year-old Brit superstar has already agreed a two-fight deal with 'AJ' ahead of his upcoming third super-fight with fierce rival Deontay Wilder.
But the path to unification has been made clear for the 'Gypsy King' after Dillian Whyte missed out on the opportunity to become the WBC mandatory challenger.
Fury took part in an Instagram Q&A and was asked by one fan 'how many rounds would it take for him to batter Joshua?'
The WBC champ didn't mince his words and responded: "I would batter Joshua inside the first round."
During the Q&A, one fan asked Fury why he "disliked" Matchroom chief Eddie Hearn.
Fury laughed at the question and insisted that he doesn't dislike Joshua's promoter, saying he only thinks "he's a bellend."
But Hearn has confirmed that the Brit superstar could make his boxing return in December against IBF mandatory challenger Kubrat Pulev.
Joshua's path to the Fury mega-fight could be pushed back should the WBO demand the two-time unified champ face mandatory challenger Oleksandr Usyk.
"I have a lot of respect for the man, he's a good family man and a good fighter, but on the other hand, I want to break his head," he said.
"First six rounds, I think, well I know I'm going to take him out then."
