Should the Ukrainian beat AJ again, he could be set for a lucrative next bout with all the heavyweight belts on the line.

Speaking to Barbershop Conversations, the veteran of the fight game said: “I would hope to do that fight in December maybe, or early next year.”

Fury, 33, has eyed up a number of opponents since “retiring” earlier this year.

He was at first strongly linked with a crossover bout with UFC heavyweight champion Francis Ngannou.

With the Cameroonian crocked a date has failed to materialise, with other options considered.

SunSport revealed that Fury is eyeing up an exhibition bout with Game of Thrones strongman Hafthor Bjornsson, or even a bizarre trilogy fight with Derek Chisora.

Matchroom promoter Eddie Hearn reckons that Joshua remains the biggest draw in boxing ahead of Fury.

But he has admitted that the Gypsy King is currently the best heavyweight on the planet.

Fury recently roared a defiant message towards his boxing rivals.

He bellowed: “I’m the f***ing best, I’m the f***ing best, I’m the best there ever was, the best there ever was, I’m the f***ing boss.”

The WBC champ then added: “I’m the f***ing boss. Heavyweights – I own those motherf***ers.”
