"Everyone says we need to be patient because we have a fight between Usyk and Fury for all the belts in the division. After they resolve their issues, I hope I can break in and get the opportunity to fight for the championship. Fury is one of my rivals. He's the man I want to have a rivalry with someday. And when that fight happens, I will use everything he said about me as fuel," Joshua said.
