The British fighter made light work of the highly-touted American Kevin Johnson within two rounds on Saturday to remain undefeated in his nascent professional career.
The impressive victory has led to calls for Joshua to be paired with a whole host of quality heavyweights for his next fight including Tyson Fury (6/1), Dereck Chisora (6/1) and David Price (7/2).
However, the online bookmaker makes Jamaican-born Londoner Dillian Whyte 6/4 favourite to be next into the ring with the London 2012 Olympic gold medallist.
Betway’s Alan Alger said, “Tyson Fury and [Vitali] Klitschko had both failed to stop Kevin Johnson, which makes Anthony Joshua’s pummelling of the American within two rounds all the more special.
“Although he’ll probably fight Dillian Whyte first, a mouth-watering bout against Fury can’t be far off. If AJ comes through that unscathed, he’ll certainly be eying up the belts of an aging Klitschko.
“12/1 to beat Fury, Klitschko and Deontay Wilder in the next two and a half years will probably be looked back upon as mightily generous odds.”
