PROMOTER Frank Warren wants Anthony Joshua to ditch his rematch against Oleksandr Usyk so Tyson Fury can fight the Ukrainian in an undisputed blockbuster.
Warren was beaming in Las Vegas at the weekend after watching his man deliver a sensational 11th-round KO of Deontay Wilder in their trilogy fight.
That successful WBC title defence has cemented Fury as one of the greatest heavyweights ever.
Joshua, meanwhile, will attempt a revenge mission after instructing his promoter Eddie Hern to thrash out terms for the Usyk rematch.
Joshua was easily outboxed by the former cruiserweight king in front of 65,000 fans at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on September 25.
But Warren has urged AJ to consider stepping aside to let Fury go toe-to-toe with Usyk for all the belts.
Speaking to talkSPORT, the 69-year-old said: If AJ was to step aside and let us get the Usyk fight on, maybe he could fight the winner?
"Usyk has got a rematch clause with AJ, that’s no secret. If AJ wants to step aside then I’m sure we can easily make that fight, but will he step aside? I doubt it! Maybe he will, I don’t know

“From our perspective, we would love to do that fight, but if we can’t and Tyson wants to keep boxing, he’ll have to defend his title, if he doesn’t want to keep boxing, so be it."
Fellow Brit Dillian Whyte could even FINALLY get his world title shot – he is the mandatory for Fury's WBC belt.
But for now, Fury is going to look forward to having a bit of a 'normal life' outside the boxing ring.
The Gypsy King says he will be back 'taking the bins out' and enjoy a month off training after his stunning trilogy win against Wilder.
Speaking to The Telegraph, the 33-year-old undefeated fighter said: "I’ll go straight back to my grass roots.
"Doing the bins, taking the kids to school, doing bits around the house. Normal stuff.
"I’m going to take a month off training and just enjoy myself."
