While Chisora ​​was recently defeated by Joseph Parker in their thrilling rematch in December.

Promoter Eddie Hearn then teased the British giant as a return rival for Wilder.

And Chisora ​​admitted that Wilder is one of several heavyweight stars he’d like to get off the list before retirement.

On talkSPORT he said: “I think we’ve both come out of two defeats, back-to-back.

“I guess why not? People are saying, ‘Why does he want to do this?’ They are not me. People are not made like me.

“The thing is, I’ll be honest with you, I want to fight everyone. When I get the hang of it all I can say is I fought everyone in my era and enjoyed it.

“I loved it, that’s what I want to do. I don’t want to duck and dive and suddenly end my career saying ‘I wish I had fought this guy’.

“No, I just want to fight everyone.”

Asked if he can beat Wilder, Chisora ​​said: “I don’t know, but yes I want to go for it 100 percent. Yes, I’ll beat him.”

Wilder, 36, was knocked out in round 11 by Fury, 33, in October, 20 months after losing their rematch in round seven.

He has been left to contemplate retirement or another run back to the heavyweight throne.

For 37-year-old Chisora, 29-year-old Parker and before that 34-year-old have been consistently beaten by current unified champion Oleksandr Usyk.

Chisora ​​said: “I always say this, my world title for me is that people recognize me on the streets. That’s my world title – that’s what I love.

But the popular punter refused to consider hanging up the glove despite his defeat.

And he admitted that the fanfare he enjoys during the twilight of his career exceeds any world title belt for him.

Chisora ​​said: “I always say this, my world title for me is that people recognize me on the streets. That’s my world title – that’s what I love.

“I worked hard to reach the top. I used to box at York Hall. Now 20,000 people are watching me, I don’t want to give that easy.

“I don’t really care about the title that comes with it.

“Your taxi man, bin man, general cleaner, by the time I walk up there and recognizes me and says, ‘That was a great fight’, that’s my world title.”
