As BoxingScene.com previously reported, Anthony Joshua is still scheduled to defend his IBF, IBO, WBA, WBO world heavyweight titles against mandatory challenger Kubrat Pulev on June 20 in London.
But because of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, Joshua's promoter Eddie Hearn could see the event potentially being pushed back to a date in July.
If the situation with the coronavirus continues to escalate, and the Pulev defense is pushed back to a time period beyond the summer - there is a possibility that Hearn and Joshua begin to explore a potential unification with WBC world champion Tyson Fury.
On the other hand, Fury has plans of his own to deal with.
He is contractually tied to make a defense against former champion Deontay Wilder in a trilogy fight, which is currently being targeted for a date of July 18th.
Both Joshua and Fury are very interested in fighting each other at the end of the year - provided they win their upcoming defenses.
"Well I think, all of a sudden, does the Joshua-Fury fight start taking priority, maybe over a Pulev fight, if the Pulev fight extends beyond the summer. There's so much that could happen right now," Hearn told Sky Sports.
"I mean anything is possible, but contractually Deontay Wilder is going to want his fight next, whether that's in July or whether there's a force majeure that takes that to October, November wherever.
"Right now, for us, we're fighting Kubrat Pulev, June 20, and it could be July 25, but everything is uncertain at the moment, whilst the country and the world tries to contain this pandemic."
