As Joshua prepares to make his debut in America against Jarrel Miller in June, fight fans are calling for the three-belt world champion to book showdowns with Fury and Wilder.
While WBC champion Wilder is a knockout artist, Fury is a highly-skilled operator and Joshua is aware he would need a tailored game plan for each man.

Despite Fury being the better boxer, Joshua thinks he would have to outbox his fellow heavy hitter Wilder.
He told the New York Times: ‘Fury, I’m just going to knock him out. No nonsense, none of this jab-for-jab nonsense.
‘Just work him, work him, work him. With Wilder, I can outbox Wilder. No problem.

Wilder and Fury fought to a draw last December (Picture: Getty)‘Fury’s a bit more elusive, so I have to just kind of pin him down a bit more, then do what I want to do.’
Fury, a fellow Brit and the lineal heavyweight champion, is in talks to fight Wilder again, but Joshua has been fielding questions about why a unification bout has not happened yet while on his promotional tour for the Miller clash.
The IBF, WBO and WBA (Super) champion insisted he offered Wilder and Fury the chance to face him at Wembley in April, before turning his attention on Miller.

‘It’s a power move, as well as a passionate move for the love of the sport [to come to America],’ Joshua said on American radio show, ‘The Breakfast Club’.
‘Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder were talking about blacklisting me, they don’t really want me to be leading the pack in terms of negotiations, which is weird to me because there’s enough for everybody to eat.
‘Once I get Big Baby out of the way, I can look directly at Luis Ortiz. That’s the next guy I feel [I’ll fight], once I’ve broken the US market.’
