Wilder is still adamant that he was cheated in his rematch with Fury.

Regarding who he wants to fight Wilder told Marcus Watson on Instagram Live: “Without naming the obvious that people obviously know [Fury], I’d love to fight guys I haven’t fought.

“You know, the ones at the top who I haven’t fought, haven’t got my hands on, that’s what I want.

“I know that’s kinda lame a little bit, to not name a name, but anyone I ain’t faced at the top, I’m talking about you.”

When asked if Joshua and Ruiz Jr are top targets, Wilder responded: “Yeah.

“Any fighter that’s at the top that people haven’t seen me fight and people strongly want to see me fight, that’s who I want to fight.

“I can sit here and name names all day, that’s the easy part.

“I’m just gonna go to the top, if it’s someone I ain’t fought, that’s who I want to fight.

“I want to clean the division out.

“People think I’m gone or I’ve stopped boxing. I haven’t.”
