A blockbuster undisputed clash between Joshua and Fury has been mooted with WBO mandatory challenger Usyk hinting that he would be willing to step aside.

"All four belts might end up in the same hands of one person," the Ukrainian said.

"It might be a once in a lifetime opportunity. We should all talk and communicate for that to happen because it is a really big event."

He added: "I still want to fight Anthony Joshua for the title. There are many factors for this fight to happen, my team and all the participants and all their interested parties are already working on it.

"But there are still many people who wish to fight him as well, like Tyson Fury."
