Anthony Joshua has declared that he wants to steamroll Kubrat Pulev when they clash on December 12, 2020.
The four-belt heavyweight champion is keen to fight his fellow British heavyweight champion, Tyson Fury, in 2021 after signing a two-fight deal.
But AJ has to go past the Bulgarian Brut and is due to fight Oleksandr Usyk at some point next year in a mandatory defence of the WBO belt.
However, Joshua may need to vacate that title in order to facilitate a fight against Fury and will not leave any stone unturned for the match ahead with Pulev.
Joshua told Sky Sports:
"It's just a bit of a circus going on. When it's solidified, you'll hear it from me. Until then, I'm not really into the whole circus act and trying to promote my name off his back and him doing the same. I'm keen to fight him for sure, he's a competitor in my division. A good one as well. It will give me a chance to showcase what I'm about as well.
"I had my little slip-up last year.
"We've brushed it off and we've got the belts back and now I'm going to go out there and get back on the gravy train and fight the likes of Fury 100 percent.
"But without getting past Kubrat Pulev, who is a serious competitor and challenger, there aren't no talks of Tyson Fury and stuff like that. It's a tough game I'm in, because as I said it's the pot of gold at the end of rainbow, but before that I've got to navigate my way through and Pulev is a big old heavyweight standing in the way of that pot of gold.
"I'm still very hungry and disciplined, so I want to steamroll through him. That's the fighter's talk coming out. With that being said, it takes a lot of training in the gym and that is what training camp is about."
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that Anthony Joshua has disclosed that he noticed about the controversial Special Anti Robbery Squad (SARS) unit when issues about the force unit became a dormant point of conversation.
The British born two-time world boxing champion is of Nigerian descent as his parents are of the Yoruba tribe.
Joshua who currently holds the WBA (Super), IBF, WBO, and IBO titles was first seen in Nigeria in 2019 when he visited his ancestral home Sagamu, Ogun state.
