Anthony Joshua's Opponent Could Be Determined This Week

The next opponent for IBF, IBO, WBA, WBO heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua could be determined this week, according to the boxer's promoter Eddie Hearn.

There is a very short list of opponents. Joshua will return either on April 13th at Wembley Stadium in London or a date in May or June at Madison Square Garden in New York City.

"I think we'll decide this week, but whether we let you know is another story," Hearn told Sky Sports News. "There's three guys that are interested in the fight - and that's Fury, Whyte and Jarrell Miller. If it's Miller, it will be at Madison Square Garden in New York. If it's the other guys it's going to be at Wembley.

Hearn states that Joshua is already training hard and they are just waiting to confirm which boxer he will face.

"Everyone is stopping me in the street saying 'what's next?' It's frustrating, because some want the fight, and some don't want the fight. I feel as though he's putting together some great offers for these guys and we need to decide soon," Hearn said.

"Joshua is already in camp. He keeps himself in training all the time. He's waiting on the news. I'm going to see him on Friday night, sit down with him and go through exactly where we're at. We'll be making some big decisions this weekend."

WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder is likely face Tyson Fury in a rematch. Dillian Whyte is still the frontrunner, but now there are issues after Whyte claimed that he was given a lowball offer.

And Jarrell Miller is the darkhorse to get the fight.

"There's been no official offer to Jarrell Miller yet, there's been offers to all the other guys," he said. "Some have been improved, some we're stuck at, some are open to negotiations. The hard thing is the lack of feedback. It's all very well saying no, but tell us what you don't like about it.

"Deontay Wilder, total radio silence. I don't think he even wants to touch this fight. Fury I believe wants the fight, and same with Dillian, but we have to get the feedback to say 'we don't like this offer, we want this, or we want that,' and no-one's really doing that - which is worrying - to tell you that they actually want the fight. No one is pushing. We're the ones continually making offers, improving offers, making phone calls, text messages and emails. End of this weekend, we've really got to start pulling the trigger."
