So once I have it and I'm on the journey, say the fight is a week away, I'll say: "I'm on the verge of mentioning my name alongside the greats like Muhammad Ali and Mike Tyson".
The WBC world champion is a unsafe opponent for Joshua (20-0-20KO) but the former Olympic gold medallist insists he is not afraid to take risks.
Tyson Fury's uncle and trainer has revealed when we can expect to see the controversial heavyweight's comeback. When things are done, I'll announce them.
"It's a tough road back for him and I'm a fight that he doesn't want", Briggs said. Despite still being overweight, the 29-year-old's boxing and movement was as impressive as ever as he hopes to fight Joshua next year.
Cast your mind back to March 2009.
"Lots of different permutations right now, lots of different venue options as well - talks of one fight in the United Kingdom, one fight in America between the two - but also an understanding that this is a huge fight and one that we must get made in 2018".
"I had spent the last three-and-a-half months training for this last guy, so there was no talk of me ever fighting you up until he had a fight".
Despite the simmering bad blood between them and fans' appetite to see them settle their differences, Fury will nearly certainly require one or two tune-up fights before he is given the chance to clash with Joshua. Bum city, like I always said.
But the WBO strap has since become a recognised world title belt, too, meaning Joshua can surpass everyone and hold four belts with victory over Wilder and Parker.
"I'm not in the business of making promises I can't fulfil, that's why I'm working on getting this fight done".
He also warned Joshua he does not need to get in shape to win a fight between the pair. "So it is nice, I'm willing to give a lot more of myself". "(But) even though there's a lot of talk - in reality, it isn't going to be like Joseph Parker, Wilder and Tyson Fury all in one year".
It comes after former heavyweight champ Shannon Briggs claimed he would welcome Fury back to the ring in a tune-up fight next year.
"Everyone's following my career but everyone else is managing their own career how is best for them".
