WHO is Anthony Joshua going to fight next? According to the WBA, IBF and WBO heavyweight champion’s promoter, Eddie Hearn, Deontay Wilder remains the “number one choice”. Tyson Fury – fresh off a contentious draw with the WBC boss – is number two.

As well as Wilder and Fury – both seemingly long shots at this point – Hearn named Dillian Whyte, Dereck Chisora and Oleksandr Usyk as potential Anthony Joshua opponents when he returns to Wembley Stadium on April 13.

The likeliest outcome would seem to be that Wilder and Fury contest a rematch, with the December 22 winner of the Hearn-promWhyte-Chisora II stepping in to challenge Joshua in April.
