Anthony Joshua sets sights on fighting Tyson Fury at Tottenham stadium

Anthony Joshua is eyeing up a mouth-watering all-British clash with Tyson Fury at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

The WBA, IBF and WBO world heavyweight champion is planning his next fights after reclaiming his belts against Andy Ruiz Jr last month.

A showdown with Kubrat Pulev is likely to be first up, with the Bulgarian the mandatory challenger to Joshua's IBF title, while a clash with no.1 contender to his WBO belt Oleksandr Usyk could follow.

But Joshua is already setting his sights beyond those two opponents, and is keen to face-off with the winner of Fury's clash with Deontay Wilder .

Asked on the prospect of facing the Gypsy King, Joshua said: “The doors are open. I’m wishing him well in February. "

He added: "Imagine having that fight, at Tottenham? That would be phenomenal.

“I’m supporting Fury [against Wilder] because imagine the local kids being able to watch the undisputed championship fight on their doorstep. I’d love it to be here in the UK.”

Joshua has admitted previously he would be prepared to forefeit one of his titles to a mandatory challenger if there were bigger fights to be made.

None come much bigger than Fury, though Joshua is seems more keen to step into the ring with Wilder in the near future.

On the topic of Wilder's upcoming clash with Fury, Joshua said: "Everyone wants Wilder to win because (a fight with me) is what everyone wants to see. Wilder has a great right hand, I have a great left hand. It is a great boxing match.
