Africa Daily News, New York had earlier reported that Joshua lost his WBA, IBF, and WBO belts to Oleksandr Usyk via a unanimous decision at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Saturday night.
A rematch with Usyk has now been confirmed by his promoter, Eddie Hearn.
However, Joshua feels he can still fight Fury with or without his world titles.
‘As I said, I’ll fight Tyson Fury, Wilder, without the belts.
“The belts are fun. It’s great, it’s a legacy. But with or without the belts, I’ll fight whoever. The road to undisputed is a nice title to have and a nice title to chase.
‘But would you still watch it, without the belts?
‘That’s the main thing – is you’ve got two competitive fighters in the ring from UK soil, that just want to go toe-to-toe,’ Joshua said at the press conference following the defeat.
