Tyson Fury (28-0-1) is on a 2020 collision course with bitter rival Deontay Wilder (41-0-1), all set for February 22 next year in America, but today 'The Gypsy King' revealed he wants to fight the fearsome puncher twice more.
Tyson and Wilder met in December last year when their thrilling title fight reached a stalemate, despite the challenger largely outboxing the WBC champion for the full fight, but a 12th round knockdown saw the scorecards shift towards a controversial draw instead, meaning 'The Bronze Bomber' kept hold of his green and gold belt that has been in his possession since 2015.
31-year-old Fury next takes on the unbeaten but unknown Swede Otto Wallin (20-0) in Las Vegas this Saturday night. Despite critics and fight fans being underwhelmed at his choice of opponent, Wallin is a European heavyweight champion ranked in the top 5 with the WBA.
Victory over the undefeated Scandinavian will guarantee Fury a second shot at WBC king Wilder, assuming the American beats Luis Ortiz in their rematch scheduled for November.
The Mancunian expects to then take on Wilder again in a rubber match to settle their heavyweight trilogy, before setting his sights on becoming the undisputed champion of boxing's premier division.
"I am going to fight them all," he told BT Sport on September 10, just days before his 30th professional contest.
"I'll fight Wallin, Wilder, Wilder then the winner of Joshua-Ruiz if they’re available, and if not I'll give Del Boy (Dereck Chisora) a shot.
"I've got Wallin in September, February 22 is Wilder, then the rematch I want to be in June or July and then providing I get through that unscathed I'll fight in December.
"If I beat Wilder in such style he doesn't want a rematch, then he'll go somewhere else and I'll fight whoever.
"Why don’t we make these fights in 2020? We ain't getting any younger, these fights need to be made in a hurry.
"When there were three unbeaten world champions in the division that was exciting, but when one of them gets knocked out by a man who was beaten before it's not as exciting.
"You've only got two men who are red hot in the division."
Joshua and Fury looked to be on a collision course, despite the difficulty in negotiations and conflicting networks, until the former was stopped by Ruiz Jr on June 1 at Madison Square Garden.
The Brit was knocked down four times as lost his unbeaten record and his three belts in New York in what was a disastrious Stateside debut.
The pair will clash again in Saudi Arabia on December 7, and Fury claims even a defeat won't rule Joshua out of facing him.
"Me versus Joshua in England will also be a big fight even if he loses three fights in a row," he added, alluding to the pair's ongoing arguments that have lasted years now.
"He's still going to be a high-profile name all around the world."
