WBC world heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder is looking forward to socialising with rivals Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury -- as well as fighting them.

The American (39-0, 38 KOs) is preparing for the seventh defence of his title against Luis Ortiz (28-0, 24 KOs) on March 3 but is already looking forward to trans-Atlantic meetings with WBA Super and IBF king Joshua and the returning Fury.

In an interview reported in the The Daily Star, Wilder said: "I wanna party with those guys -- Tyson Fury.

"When me and Joshua fight, we are going to England, we'll rent out one of the biggest clubs and have a big-ass party.

"Win, lose or draw. I'm gonna knock him out. We come to America, do the same. You know what I mean, just have a tour. I can see it all happening.

"It's all love on this side. We don't hate Joshua, we're not jealous."

Wilder won the belt from Bermane Stiverne in Jan. 2017 and has long been linked to a lucrative unification clash with Joshua, who will look to add the WBO crown to his collection when he takes on New Zealand's Joseph Parker on March 31.
