He said he will apply ‘pressure’ on the Wilder-Fury II winner to finally decide the undisputed world’s No 1.

This has been confirmed by Joshua’s promoter, Eddie Hearn, who admitted his camp will be in Las Vegas, USA, on Saturday as WBC champion Wilder faces one-time short-term title holder, Fury. 

Hearn added that he expects to resume fresh talks for a much awaited unification super-fight that would clear up any debate about the division’s dominant champion.

Hearn told Sky Sports: “Everybody has opinions but it’s impossible to say. My opinion is that Joshua is the best but, until he beats the winner, the world will not be satisfied. We have to put the pressure on the winner to finally get our fight on in 2020″.
