Ahead of that, the ex-champ, Deontay Wilder, was in a recent interview with Brian Custer. Here, Custer asked ‘The Bronze Bomber’ a query posted by a fan on Twitter. It was focused on whether Wilder, if he won, would face the Usyk vs Joshua winner, or opt to face any other challenger.

‘The Bronze Bomber’ responded, ”He could be a new, new to boxing, or he could be new or he or she whoever asking that question could be new to me. But anybody knows me, knows, I know my true fans already know the answer. You feel me? Anybody that knows Wilder knows I’m seeking one champion, one face, one name.”

Joshua, a few days back, got dethroned by the underdog Oleksandr Usyk. Despite that setback, he has remained steadfast in regaining his belts and has supposedly already invoked the immediate rematch clause.

On the other hand, Wilder will have to get past the stout Fury to be able to place himself on top. That said, if Wilder defeats Fury and if Joshua beats Usyk, needless to say, a fight between the Alabama native and ‘AJ’ will be on the cards.
