The British boxer will fight Jarrell 'Big Baby' Miller in New York on June 1, but has expressed his desire for a future unification showdown with Deontay Wilder followed by a clash against Oleksandr Usyk who recently moved up a weight division.

The year 2019 is already shaping up for a huge year in heavyweight boxing with Joshua, Wilder, Usyk and Tyson Fury all in action over the next few months.

IBF, WBA and WBO, Josuha, is excited by what the next year holds for the sport and the 2012 Olympic champion has outlined his ambitions.

Joshua told Sky Sports News: "It's really good because we've got me and Miller, Wilder vs Breazeale, (Tyson) Fury vs (Tom) Schwarz, Dillian Whyte is going to do something, Usyk vs Takam.

"The heavyweight division is alive. It is booming.

"I think it will be class if I can fight Wilder for the undisputed title and then I could fight Usyk because then that would be the undisputed heavyweight champion versus the undisputed cruiserweight champion at heavyweight. That would be unbelievable."
