ACCORDING to his promoter, Eddie Hearn, there’s a strong possibility Anthony Joshua takes off the head of Deontay Wilder should the two ever find themselves in the ring contesting the WBA, WBC, IBF and WBO world heavyweight titles.

Hearn says a potential fight between Joshua and Tyson Fury, recently seen drawing with Wilder, might be a little awkward, but a rumble with Wilder, perhaps his preference, should come with some sort of parental guidance warning.

“Joshua would be a lot easier to hit but I also think Joshua would take him off his feet and knock him spark out,” Hearn told the Daily Mail.
