World champion Anthony Joshua has called out three of the top heavyweights in the division. Boxing might have been shut down due to lockdowns across the globe, but there is still plenty to talk about with Joshua leading the charge.

Unified heavyweight champion Joshua was scheduled to fight Kubrat Pulev in June but the date has been postponed because of the coronavirus pandemic. It was a mandatory fight for the IBF belt.

The Briton told the Sports Illustrated Boxing with Chris Mannix podcast that a history making all-British fight against WBC champion Tyson Fury is top of his wish list. The winner of the fight would be the undisputed heavyweight champion.

"Pulev isn’t on my level - I'm walking through him. I want the boys at the top. I'm looking at Fury like I'm going to walk through him as well," Joshua said.

The new date for Joshua vs Pulev is yet to be confirmed, but many boxing fans think Joshua could be underestimating the Bulgarian.

Joshua also discussed the possibility of taking on former foe and compatriot Dillian Whyte, telling Sky Sports Boxing: "Once I've beaten Fury, Whyte can come and get this work as well."

Joshua fought Whyte in 2015 with Joshua winning in seventh-round stoppage.

Whyte has beaten some top-level contenders in the heavyweight division since then to become the number one challenger for Fury’s WBC belt.

There is a possibility Joshua won’t fight Fury or Whyte, in which case he said he would happily take on Ukraine's former cruiserweight champion and WBO mandatory challenger Oleksandr Usyk.

"Line them all up," he said.
