Wilder is instead convinced that not only is Fury already ready to challenge him in a fight that he says is "most definitely" bigger than one with Joshua, but that his stoppage of Cuba's Luis Ortiz earlier this year provided the ideal preparation for a fighter with Fury's strengths.
"But I also know what it is like being in a good place and the top is so much better than the bottom".
In front of a raucous 25,000-sellout crowd at Windsor Park, Fury shook off any ring rust and showed genuine focus for the task against, admittedly, a limited opponent.
As for Tyson Fury, his comeback was a simple one: "Listen, you can't knock out what you can't hit".
The 31-year-old Frampton, who defended the interim WBO title, said: "I'm not a world champion, Josh is a world champion".
"One of those fights will be in November, and one will be in December".
A left hook Fury landed during the eighth was perhaps the best punch he has landed since his comeback began, though his priority was likely the rounds he needed to prepare for Wilder.
His promoter Frank Warren added: "The fight's on".

Deontay Wilder: This fight is official!
WBC world heavyweight titleholder Wilder (40-0, 39 KOs) confirmed he would fight Fury next amid a pantomime face-off, although details of venue and date were not revealed. I do want to help people like that. And if he ever thinks about having this belt, he better wake up and apologise to me because he'll never have this.
"From the airport, to 3am last night and from 8am this morning, I've had nothing but love for Belfast", he told BT Sport. "In an ideal world I could have done with another 10 or 12 round fight but it's not an ideal world and sometimes you just have to step up to the plate and rise to the occasion and that's what I do". This man (Pianeta) couldn't land a blow on me.
"The week that I've been here, I've been speaking to people with mental health problems on a daily basis and I do take pride in that".
And boxing fans loved the banter between the two fighters.
"I'm not going into this for a pay cheque".
