Dmitriy Salita, promoter for heavyweight contender Otto Wallin, has continued to push for a fight with former two-time world champion Anthony Joshua.

Joshua is slated to fight in the month of March, with several names being considered for his next fight - including Wallin.

The British star is currently hunting for a new head trainer, after losing back to back fights with WBO, IBF, WBA, IBO world champion Oleksandr Usyk.

Salita feels confident that Wallin would outbox Joshua to a twelve round decision win.

Wallin's sole defeat is a twelve round decision to Tyson Fury, in a fight where Fury suffered two severe cuts. During the bout, his corner was very concerned about the possibility of the fight being stopped by the ringside doctor.

"Both Otto and Joshua want to fight Tyson Fury. Otto gave Tyson the hardest fight of his career landing more punches against him than Klitschko and Wilder 1 put together. Joshua wants to warrant a fight with Tyson after losing to Usyk," Salita told Vegas Insider

"I believe that Otto vs Joshua is the perfect fight for both. Eddie (Hearn) is attaching Joshua to lots of big names, we’ll see how serious Joshua is based on the opponent he selects next.

"It’s (AJ vs Otto) a very interesting fight. Joshua is obviously one of the elite guys in the division.  Does he still have what is necessary to compete at an elite level? Otto wants to be heavyweight champ and showed he is world class in his fight vs Tyson and subsequent quality wins after that. I pick my guy Otto to win by unanimous decision. Otto is smart , focused, has a very good chin and is still very fresh. He did not have too many fights where he took punishment. His only loss is a controversial one to one of the greatest heavyweights of our generation."
