Talks of a unification fight with Britain’s Anthony Joshua may be all but over, but Deontay Wilder is already looking beyond it.

The WBC heavyweight champion’s fight with Joshua, the IBF, IBO, WBA and WBO holder, due monitory reasons.

But that hasn’t bogged down the American from planning his future as he revealed he’s not hanging up his gloves any time soon, for his aims to get one better of Floyd Mayweather’s 50-0 record.

“We’re moving on now. My goal is to set a record: 51-0. I’m looking to clean out the heavyweight division,” the 40-0 (39 KOs) boxer told boxingnewsonline.net

“I’m not going anywhere in this heavyweight division. I’m going to be around for a very long time, until I decide to retire.”

Wilder also spoke of a possible duel with former champion Tyson Fury.

Fury, who made his comeback recently almost two years after his stunning win over Wladimir Klitschko, said he would sign Wilder’s contract in ‘10 seconds’.

“Send me the contract and I’ll show you how long it takes to sign it. Wallop. Ten seconds. Done,” the self-styled ‘Gypsy King’ had claimed on Instagram.

Reacting to Fury’s comments, Wilder said: “Anthony Joshua said the same thing.,” Wilder cracked. “He swore he’d sign the contract tomorrow. So, we done heard these things before. But I have big faith in Tyson Fury as a man of his word.

“That would be a great fight between me and him but he should be careful what he asks for.”
