WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury is not even thinking about Anthony Joshua at the moment.

Fury and Joshua were close to finalizing a deal for a high stakes unification, with the contest pegged to take place on August 14 in Saudi Arabia.

But then last month an arbitrator ordered Fury to honor a rematch clause due to Deontay Wilder.

Now both champions are heading in different directions - for the moment.

Fury is going to face Wilder in a trilogy fight on July 24th, while Joshua will collide with mandatory challenger Oleksandr Usyk in September.

Despite their animosity, Fury still views Wilder as the most dangerous fighter in the heavyweight division.

He feels confident Wilder would knock Joshua out inside a round.

"I'll deal with these guys [Joshua and Eddie Hearn] later - the most important thing to me is Wilder, the most dangerous heavyweight in the world who would knock out Joshua in the first round," he exclusively told Sky Sports.

"I've got to get past Wilder then those guys will get their five minutes of fame. I'll give them the biggest beatdown they have had in their lives. As I've told Eddie Hearn, the difference between me and them is they are businessmen and I'm a Spartan.

"This talk of undisputed means nothing to me. I'm not Eddie Hearn or Anthony Joshua. I fight because this is what I do - it's what I was born to do. I've got nothing personal against Wilder. I don't care about belts, or that stuff being remembered. I care about smashing people. If Wilder is in front of me I will give him a good hiding. The motivation? It's what I was born to do. I'm not interested in money, belts or whatever comes with it. I'm interested in blood and the fight."
