Anthony Joshua is set to box in April so we've listed five men he could face

ANTHONY JOSHUA’S emphatic rise to stardom continued on Saturday night when he stopped bitter rival Dillian Whyte in the seventh round with a chilling uppercut.

The fight sold out the O2 Arena and headlined a pay-per-view show – the 2012 Olympic champion is big business.

His win over Whyte answered some questions – he can take a shot and rally back – but also left others begging. He is now deemed beyond domestic level but doesn’t seem ready to step on to the world stage – so who should he fight next?

A fight with Tyson Fury is inevitable in the future though could not happen next given Fury’s obligation to face Wladimir Klitschko in a rematch.

He is set to box again on April 9 at the same arena, so we’ve listed five men we think would make a good match. Let us know what you think in the Comments section.
