Hearn: If Joshua Wins - He Can Face Haye, Fury, Whoever He Wants!

By Edward Chaykovsky

Promoter Eddie Hearn of Matchroom Sport will be ready to line up the big fights if Anthony Joshua (15-0, 15KO) is victorious in the biggest fight of his career, when he challenges IBF heavyweight champion Charles Martin (23-0-1, 21KOs) on April 9th at The O2 Arena in London, live on Sky Sports Box Office.

Joshua, an Olympic gold medal winner who captured the British and Commonwealth heavyweight titles as a pro, is ready to join the elite ranks.

Martin captured his title last month with a third round stoppage of Czar Glazkov at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. Joshua has been out since December, when he knocked out domestic rival Dillian Whyte in the seventh round.

If Joshua comes through, Hearn is ready to bring him back in the summer for a major fight and he's not ruling out anyone - including David Haye who has a the second fight of his comeback scheduled for late May.

"Of course, if Anthony is successful, we would look to get him out again in the summer and he can fight anyone he wants. There's David Haye, Tyson Fury, although he is probably most likely to be tied up with Wladimir Klitschko. There are a lot of people saying he'll have to learn on the job with some defences. But we will take it fight by fight," Hearn told Sky Sports.

"He is already probably one of the most powerful commodities in the heavyweight division. Add that world title around his waist and all of a sudden it takes him to another level, probably one of the biggest stars in the sport."

[QUOTE=ThumperMcDougal;16470954]Molina shook Wilder, Whyte shook Joshua. They've both been shaken. Deontay Wilder possesses a bomb for a right fist. Joshua would eat a few clean ones with his big self and fall like a California redwood. :fing02:[/QUOTE] Wilder has a…
