Eddie Hearn has exposed Bob Arum called him to attempt as well as make Tyson Fierceness vs Anthony Joshua occur next prior to declaring AJ will be back out in action in July. The Matchroom Boxing promoter went to the centre of tiring settlements with the Gypsy King's camp on two separate occasions before the heavyweight landscape was vomitted right into the air much to the stress of fans around the globe.
But now there is a real possibility that Fierceness vs Joshua can take place next - providing AJ and his team want to leap directly right into that battle.
Settlements for the undisputed heavyweight globe championship battle in between Fury and also Oleksandr Usyk recently fell down suggesting the Gypsy King is currently scouting around for an opponent.
Now Joshua is on his radar in spite of his radio silence as well as Hearn has actually currently gotten a telephone call from marketer Arum to try and get the wheels in motion. Still he is undecided on his following action with AJ.
"We've simply reached determine what sort of battle we want for July," Hearn told iFL television. "Do we go straight right into a huge fight now? Bob Arum phoned me a few days ago, which was quite a shock. Just discussing AJ Fury, he claimed 'what are you thinking?'
"And also I claimed 'I do not know. We're all up for talking about the battle. I do not believe there will be a considerable site cost in July, however we're still willing to consider the numbers, or if you intend to wait as well as do it later on in the year, we're up for that also'.
"That knows what's mosting likely to occur with Usyk, with [Deontay] Wilder. We're mosting likely to have to see, yet AJ's mosting likely to combat in July, 100 per cent."
Joshua indicated after his success over Jermaine Franklin that he would certainly be prepared to lock horns with Fierceness next.
But if the two-time heavyweight world champ is to adopt an extra rational approach, he will seek to continue constructing momentum under new train Derrick James via affordable fights.
A rematch with Dillian Whyte is also a strong choice while Otto Wallin and also Filip Hrgovic represent different avenues that could show to be helpful.
AJ told DAZN post-fight: "I understand that the fans desire. The round remains in his court and I would be honoured to fight for the WBC. We aren't getting any kind of more youthful.
"Wherever you are if you're listening you understand my manager, you understand where we are. We aren't getting any kind of more youthful. I can't wait to obtain the next huge fight."
Joshua is keen for one more world title shot as he aims to obtain his hands on Fierceness's eco-friendly WBC strap which has continued to thwart him.
Hearn previously named both Whyte as well as Wallin as 2 of the names on Joshua's possible want list.
Usyk is currently tied up with his WBA necessary Daniel Dubois with the pair set to battle this summertime.
It indicates Fury has actually been left taking a look around for alternative challengers and also Joshua is a fight he believes he can win with loved one simplicity.
Joshua is expected to make his activities understood soon as he prepares to head back into camp following a really tight turn-around.
