World heavyweight champion Tyson Fury is eager to fight the winner of the Anthony Joshua and Charles Martin fight. Fury, 27, must first overcome former title holder Wladimir Klitschko in a much-anticipated rematch later this year, but has confirmed he will then have his sights set on whoever is victorious at London's O2 Arena on 9 April.

The unbeaten Mancunian (25-0) is confident he can beat both Klitschko and Joshua this year. "I am going to bladder Wlad in the next fight then I am going to bladder Joshua in the next one," he said, according to Sky Sports.

"It will be huge in this country for sure. If he wins - or whoever wins - I will fight them next. I hope Joshua wins because of the money and Martin because he is such nice guy."

Fury claims a bout against himself would represent a major step-up in class for either Joshua or Martin, the unbeaten American who is defending his IBF title in April. Fury is in no doubt that he will prove to be too good for them.

"One thing I do know is when the fight happens between Joshua or Martin, I'll introduce them to big-time boxing. I will say: 'Welcome to big-time boxing' to either of them. Once I've flattened them," he claimed.
