Anthony Joshua has given his first interview after his devastating loss to Oleksandr Usyk last month.

The Ukrainian was able to outbox Joshua throughout their fight in September, defeating the Briton comfortably on points - with a rematch set for March.

If Joshua is to defeat Usyk, he could be in line for an undisputed clash with Tyson Fury.

However, that's not who is sights are set on.

The 31-year-old Joshua has promised to fight "anyone", but then stated that he would be keen to take a fight with Deontay Wilder after Usyk. Wilder suffered an 11th-round knockout to Fury in Nevada earlier in October.

Speaking to IFL TV, Joshua said: "If the fans can't see I would take these fights with the fighters like Wilder in a heartbeat.

"And I want people to know that I would fight anyone in their prime or anytime. Give me a mandatory and I will fight anyone, I love the game and will fight anyone.

"I will take on any challenge providing politics aren't an issue and the finances are there with these guys, people know what I am about. I think Wilder fought Fury thinking it was going to be easier than his previous fights and got caught in a trilogy web.

"But would I fight Wilder, yes I would."

Joshua has been previously linked with fighting Wilder before his trilogy with Fury began in 2018.

The two had gone back and forth for a number of years, with a fight never materialising.

Wilder's manager Shelly Finkel admitted that a showdown with Joshua could be back on the cards when he returns from a hand injury next year.

Wilder's co-manager Shelly Finkel told SunSport : "My gut says the big fights. It’s not on the drawing board now, but he would love to get Fury back again.

"But again, it’s early and we have to get through Usyk and Joshua and see a couple of other possibilities.

"It’s a massive fight [Wilder vs Joshua], no matter what happens in the Joshua - Usyk fight. And I’m not sure that Usyk, even with his great skills, will be able to deal with the size of Fury.

"Deontay broke his right hand behind the third knuckle and he has to have that fixed next week. He has to have surgery, the knuckle is OK, it’s the bone behind the knuckle that broke. He’s sore but he was OK, he was home yesterday.

"He’s healing and at this point, if everything is OK, after the hand surgery he’ll probably look to enter the ring mid next year, like April or May."
