Unified world heavyweight champion Oleksandr Usyk is looking forward to a potential undisputed fight with WBC champion Tyson Fury according to his promoter Alexander Krassyuk.

"It will be after Usyk defeats AJ in the rematch," Krassyuk told Sky Sports when asked about a future fight with Fury. 

Joshua triggered his rematch clause on Saturday and is out for revenge following Usyk's comprehensive points win at the end of September. 

Krassyuk also revealed that the newly crowned WBA, WBO, IBF and IBO heavyweight champion was impressed by Fury's knockout win against Deontay Wilder last weekend at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

"And he was impressed with how the boxers fought without showing boxing skills. They were trying to [badly hurt] each other."

Usyk's rematch with Joshua is set to take place in early 2022, while Fury's next fight will be against WBC mandatory Dillian Whyte in an all-British showdown.
