Now Joshua is looking at a rematch with Klitschko should the Ukrainian exercise his rematch clause that was in the original contract.

Joshua’s promoter Eddie Hearn of Matchroom Sports has revealed his wish list for Joshua’s next three fights.

When asked what his ideal next three match ups for Joshua would be, Hearn said, Wladimir Klitschko, WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder and and ex-champ Tyson Fury, in that order.

“I think from a fans perspective and I call myself one of those as well, Klitschko, Deontay Wilder, Tyson Fury, they would be the next three fights for Anthony Joshua,” Hearn said.

“There’s honestly no one that wants to see Tyson Fury return to the ring more than Anthony Joshua and myself, because that is the biggest fight in world boxing. ”

Hearn said it’s great to see Fury training working towards his comeback.

He said: “He’s got a long way to go, it’s great to see him training, I think the UKAD is extremely cloudy and doesn’t make sense and something’s going on there that I can’t put my finger on.

“He’s got to go before the British Boxing Board of Control, he’s a long way from fighting again but he’s on the road, he’s on the horse.

“He’s back in the gym he’s getting the weight off, he seems to be committed to the sport again which is great for all of us because – yeah he’s not everybody’s cup of tea, but he’s a character, he’s a personality and that’s what drives sport.

Hearn then spoke about the progress that Joshua has made so early in his professional boxing career.

“Anthony is doing things that people at this stage in his career shouldn’t, he shouldn’t be in unification fights with Wladimir Klitschko in his 19th fight.

“You saw the whole learning process unfold before your eyes on April the 29th, he had to learn in the ring, he hasn’t been blessed with 28-34-37 fights like some of these guys.

“He will have to do a lot of learning in the ring against Tyson Fury, but he’s prepared to take these fights, and for that he deserves a huge amount of credit.
