British boxing giant Anthony Joshua, who lifted world heavyweight title after defeating Wladimir Klitschko at Wembley on Sunday, has expressed his desire to fight against a "real villain", and none fits the bill better for him than heavyweight champion Tyson Fury.

After winning a fight of unprecedented good manners against Wladimir Klitschko and 15 million pounds, Joshua is now willing to either defend his titles in a 50-million pound rematch in Germany in October or a bout against Fury.

"At the end of the fight they cheered Wladimir but, yes it would be nice to fight a real villain," the Guardian quoted Joshua as saying.

"I think that we can definitely find someone to dance with again, to bring that sort of attention again. Anyone with a belt is good, to add more to the [collection]. We could rematch Klitschko again. I think that would be good because of the type of fight we had. And I think even guys without a belt would be good. Tyson Fury obviously hasn't got a belt," the 27-year-old said.

Joshua believes a bout with Fury would definitely attract a lot of attention from all over the world.

"Joshua is in no doubt: it would be either Fury or Dillian Whyte, whom he stopped in his most thrilling contest before the Klitschko show. Fury is definitely top of the list. Yeah, that's a fight that would bring massive attention from the top to the bottom," he added.

The Briton has retained the IBF's version of the heavyweight title while adding the vacant WBA strap. He's now 19-0 with all 19 victories by stoppage. (ANI)
