Anthony Joshua says he needs to fight Tyson Fury before he retires, as he prepares for his latest title defence against Oleksandr Usyk.
The WBO, WBA (Super) and IBF champion takes on Usyk later this month at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, and is hopeful he can fight Fury next.
Talks over an undisputed title fight collapsed during the summer, but Joshua says a showdown with Fury is hugely important to him.
Fury fights Deontay Wilder in their trilogy clash next month and both heavyweights will need to win their respective bouts for the undisputed bout to go ahead next year.
Usyk Who was an undisputed champion at cruiserweight also has two wins at heavyweight, including a points victory over veteran Derek Chisora.
