While speaking to Sky Sports News Wilder expressed his confidence, and questioned Fury and Joshua's ambitions "Of course I want Tyson Fury and of course I want Anthony Joshua. The question is do they want me?"

A match up with Fury may depend on the outcome when Fury takes on Wladimir Klitschko for a second time in the heavyweight title rematch, while Anthony Joshua is still yet to announce his next opponent after his impressive victory over Dominic Breazeale.

Many people have questioned whether Joshua is ready to take on Wilder, with some claiming that the British champion hasn't been tested enough during his victory's.

Nevertheless, with Joshua at 26-years old and Wilder at 30; others believe the fight would only live up to expectations if it were to happen sooner rather than later.

Both athletes possess fantastic speed and power and you feel the fight would represent a fairly even balance in terms of ability.

Wilder has also claimed that he doesn't mind where the fights would take place and he would be open to fighting in England as long as he gets to take on Fury and Joshua.

Joshua boasts a 100% knockout win ratio but Wilder is also still undefeated, and a fight between the two heavyweights is one that everyone is desperate to see in the near future.
