Posted by

Eddie Hearn has revealed that an old rival could fight Anthony Joshua next.

The British heavyweight has bounced back from back-to-back defeats to Oleksandr Usyk by winning his last four fights.

The former champion is believed to be facing the winner of Filip Hrgovic and Daniel Dubois for the soon-to-be vacant IBF belt, if Usyk is stipped of the strap.

But, according to his promoter Eddie Hearn another opponent β€˜AJ’ could face is long-time rival Deontay Wilder, if he puts on a β€˜sensational’ performance against Zhilei Zhang tonight.

Speaking with DAZN he said: β€œThe frontrunner to fight AJ next is the winner of Hrgovic-Dubois and likely to meet [him] for the [IBF] world title. At the same time, if Deontay Wilder comes and looks sensational, maybe it reignites Joshua against Wilder.

β€œWe [Joshua] will likely fight in September and we will be having our eyes peeled for both of those fights on Saturday night.

β€œHis Excellency is talking about a press conference as soon as June 24th or June 25th for a press conference in London, I heard him say today in an interview [on talkSPORT]. The card is really shaping up, myself, George and Spencer and His Excellency are brainstorming on all of these fights, β€˜AJ’ is set to headline – we will find out against who on Saturday night.
