Wilder says a fourth fight with Fury is ‘”inevitable”, a showdown with Joshua “will get done when it’s time” and a meeting with Usyk has already being called for by the Ukrainian.

Joshua had offered Wilder a large sum of money to fight him instead of taking a rematch with Fury a number of years back.

However, Wilder decided to take the rematch, which Joshua says puts the “ducking” narrative to bed, after the Brit faced taunts from fans.

The American, who has won 41 fights via knockout, is returning to boxing a new man.

He’s “in a different mindset” and insists “people don’t know me”.

Wilder continued: “I wouldn’t say it’s a new start. I’d just say I’m in a different mindset. I’m soaking in my peace and happiness.

“I’m in a great place in life. In spirit. And in heart, man. I can’t explain it.

“Because if you don’t have happiness or peace, you don’t have nothing.”
