Joshua, who won Olympic gold in London in 2012 before turning professional, will be looking to add New Zealander Joseph Parker's World Boxing Organisation title to the World Boxing Association, International Boxing Federation and International Boxing Organisation belts he already holds in Cardiff's Principality Stadium on March 31.

"I think Anthonyâ??s got a great shot, a great future, as long as they don't rush him too fast, you know, that's the only problem," Hagler said at the Laureus Awards in Monaco.

Hagler said he had been struck by Joshua's talent when he beat Ukrainian icon Wladimir Klitschko in a thrilling bout for the WBA title in April 2017 at Wembley.

"Right now I think that he (Anthony Joshua) is the new superstar in the boxing world," said 63-year-old Hagler.

"And he has great opportunities, also there is a lot of money out there to be made!

"Anthony, I met him last year and what a great kid he was. And the fight there with Klitschko, I hated to see anybody lose this fight because I like Klitschko, but Anthony's the future."
