According to manager Sam Jones, Olympic silver medal winner Joe Joyce is hoping to secure the biggest prize possible if he defeats division rival Daniel Dubois on Saturday night.
The contest will take place with the British, European and Commonwealth titles on the line.
Also at stake is Dubois' number two ranking under the World Boxing Organization.
The current WBO mandatory challenger is Oleksandr Usyk.
But there is a possibility that Anthony Joshua would drop his WBO title in order to face Tyson Fury in a highly lucrative two-fight series.
If that actually happens, then Usyk would have to fight the highest available contender for the vacant WBO crown - which is going to be the winner of Dubois-Joyce.
Jones is shocked that Dubois is ranked much higher than Joyce in with the sanctioning bodies - when evaluating their respective records.
"Joe is below Daniel, quite unbelievably and outrageously, in the rankings," his manager Jones told Sky Sports.
"Dubois is sitting pretty at No 2 on the cusp of a world title fight with either Joshua or Oleksandr Usyk [the current WBO mandatory challenger] depending upon if the belt becomes vacant. If Joe beats Dubois, he gets that spot. This is what motivates Joe. Joe has been in the deep end from the get-go but has to beat a 22-year-old who is tipped as the next Mike Tyson - that's his quick route to the world title. So be it.
"Joe wants fights against the likes of Joshua, Fury, Usyk. It would be an honour to share the ring with Joshua. Two Brits is always a huge fight. After this fight, Joe will be in the mix and able to call out any of the top guys. Joe believes he belongs in that company."
