It will be the first time the 36-year-old has stepped back into the ring since he was KO’d by Tyson Fury in their trilogy fight last year.

Like Wilder, Joshua has two defeats behind him, having failed twice against undefeated Ukraine star Oleksandr Usyk.

But the 32-year-old is ready for an immediate return after accepting Tyson Fury’s 60-40 purse split terms ahead of a potential December 3 showdown.

It gives AJ a chance to claim the famous WBC belt – the only belt he has yet to earn as he was a two-time WBA, WBO and IBF champion.

Olympic gold medalist Joshua believes he will finalize a deal for a national dust test with Fury “in the next few days”.

And attention has already turned to who Joshua could fight, whether he returns to the top of the Glamor division or succumbs to a third loss in a row.

American KO specialist Wilder hasn’t agreed a fight with Joshua in the past, but he has now given the one condition he would need to meet in order to face him.

And this is for the two boxers and their promoters to enjoy a joint together.

Speaking on the Last Stand Podcast, the Alabama native said, “I’m ready and able for everyone.

“I still want to scream that. I’m not going to deprive the fans that this fight isn’t happening.

“I definitely want this fight to happen. I just want to know if they’re real.”

When asked how the fight is being fought, he remarked, “We gotta go to California and we all just have to light up and talk about it, man.

“That’s a good idea. You can see Shelly Finkel pass it to Eddie Hearn, Joshua pass it to me. That’s so funny.”
