WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury is taking things one fight at a time.
Fury is refusing to overlook his upcoming opponent, once-beaten Deontay Wilder. Their trilogy fight is scheduled to take place before the end of the year.
Back in February, Fury dropped and stopped Wilder in the seventh round at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. They previously fought to a controversial twelve round split draw in December 2018.
A unification between Fury and Anthony Joshua, who holds the WBO, WBA, IBF, IBO world titles, is the biggest fight in boxing.
Fury wants to fight Joshua, but is not going to take any chances with looking too far ahead.
"If I get knocked out by Deontay Wilder, then it won't be on, will it," Fury exclusively told Sky Sports.
"It will be another fight with Wilder and so forth and so on. If he loses to Pulev, so close, but so far away. In heavyweight boxing, you can never count your chickens before they hatch, so one fight at a time. One victory at a time.
"All going well, god willing, we get on the big fight with me and Joshua, the all-British showdown and I can give the fans what they want to see, especially the British fans. It will be the biggest fight since I believe Lennox Lewis and Frank Bruno. It was a while ago, Cardiff Arms Park."
Joshua had recently expressed his desire to fight Fury - and hopes that contest can happen sooner than later to settle the debate on which of them is the top heavyweight in the world.
"Yes, come fight me. If you really want to say you're No 1, come fight me. Let's get it on. I've got the rest of the belts so it only makes sense," Joshua said.
"I'm the unified heavyweight champion of the world, he's the WBC champion. What it will prove, me and him fighting? There will be one dominant figure in the heavyweight division that will have all of the belts and become undisputed. Logically to prove yourself as No 1, I have to fight Tyson Fury. He has to fight Anthony Joshua."
