IBF, WBA and WBO champion AJ has been looking to unify the division for well over a year, but was unable to negotiate a deal with Wilder despite DAZN stepping in with a lucrative offer.
But Breazeale says Joshua will have no such problems negotiating a fight with him should he beat Wilder in Brooklyn, and is already looking forward to a potential rematch.
Breazeale is super confident he will knock out Wilder on Saturday (Picture: Getty)Asked if he’d like to take on AJ next if he overcomes Wilder, Breazeale told reporters: ‘Definitely. I would love to be back in the ring 90 days from Saturday night, me and Anthony Joshua, somewhere here on US soil.
‘I know Joshua’s making his debut June 1 here in New York. That would be one hell of a fight, a rematch between me and Joshua for the undisputed heavyweight championship in Las Vegas, Nevada. I think that would be something the world definitely needs to see.’
Joshua, who stopped Breazeale after seven rounds at the O2 in 2016, takes on Andy Ruiz at Madison Square Garden next and he could be a more dangerous opponent than many pundits realise.
Breazeale continued: ‘I’ve been fortunate enough to be in the ring with Andy Ruiz, he’s got fast hands, big punching power. He’s definitely got a hell of a shot.

But if it goes the way I’m thinking it does, Andy Ruiz gets an early round stoppage because he’s going to come out guns blazing, that what he does. He’s a bad, bad man.
‘But at the same, Joshua is a high calibre fighter, he’s fought some of the best in the world and he continues to do so. He could have took some nobody that crawled out of bed yesterday but instead he takes a high calibre guy like Andy Ruiz and he’s going to make a fight of it.
‘He wants to make one hell of a debut here in the US and I’m looking forward to it. I’m glad to be part of the heavyweight division right now.’
