According to Sky Sports, Olympic gold medal winner Alexander Povetkin is interested in fighting Dillian Whyte or Derek Chisora in the UK in 2019.
Povetkin, 39-years-old, saw action twice in 2019 - with both bouts taking place in the UK.
He knocked out David Price in the fifth round in Cardiff, and then got a crack at IBF, IBO, WBA, WBO heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua - who stopped the Russian challenger in the seventh round at Wembley Stadium in London.
Povetkin managed to rattle Joshua in the early rounds, before falling apart as the contest played out.
While he initially contemplated the possibility of retirement, Povetkin is planning to fight again on a date in March or April, with the potential locations falling in line with the UK, Russia and the United States. One possible option is a spot on the undercard to the next Anthony Joshua card, which is targeted for April 13 at Wembley Stadium in London.
Two of the opponents that have Povetkin's interest - is Whyte and Chirsoa, who collide in a grudge rematch on Saturday night at The O2.
Povetkin and Whyte traded words in April, following Povetkin's knockout of Price.
"[Povetkin] is a good, strong fighter but I know what you have to do to beat him," Whyte said at the time. "You just need a good, strong jab and you beat Povetkin all day.
"I'd fight him next. I just told him. He said he'd fight me next. [Promoter Eddie Hearn] said he'd make it."
The winner of Whyte vs. Chisora would likely become the frontrunner to face Joshua in April. But now there is a chance that Joshua would face Jarrell Miller in the United States, and that date would come down in May or June in Madison Square Garden in New York. Povetkin, who himself is coming off a loss, could just as easily face the loser as he would the winner of Saturday's fight.
