Deontay Wilder is happy to take on Oleksandr Usyk after he faces Robert Helenius.
Usyk is the current IBF, WBA and WBO champion after defeating Anthony Joshua in consecutive fights, while Wilder was once the WBC champion before losing to Tyson Fury.
Fury has been entertaining fights against Joshua and Mahmoud Charr in recent weeks, so an undisputed clash does not appear imminent.
- Jaime Munguia, Vergil Ortiz, Teofimo Lopez, who are the best fighters under the age of 25?
- Deontay Wilder looks ahead to comeback fight against Robert Helenius: It just feels great not to feel the pressure
- Arsenal vs. Spurs, Man City vs. Man United could offer first real signs of the title race's fate
- Is Joe Joyce ready for Tyson Fury?
That would free up the Ukrainian unified champion to take on another opponent.
Wilder faces Helenius on October 15, and a win over his well-regarded opponent would position him as a credible contender for another title shot.
Speaking to Premier Boxing Champions, Wilder said an Usyk match-up would be: “Music to my ears.
“Usyk is a very honourable person and a man of his word, so I’m looking forward to that…
“A title shot, you’ve gotta jump on it when the opportunity presents itself.”
