Brit’s promoter Eddie Hearn says it would be tough for AJ to keep hold of the belts if he manages to obtain them all

Eddie Hearn, Joshua’s promoter, says his superstar is eyeing to take the other titles from WBO heavyweight champion Joseph Parker and WBC champ Deontay Wilder.
Hearn told Sky Sports: “He wants to fight Joseph Parker, he wants to fight Deontay Wilder.
“But the plan with Anthony Joshua is not two or three fights, it’s eight to ten years.
“We’ve got to go through everybody. We’re urging all the heavyweights to keep going, to call him out.”

Joshua also eyes a rematch with Whyte, but it is not in the Olympic gold medallists’ immediate plans.
Hearn added: “Dillian Whyte is a fight that Anthony Joshua wants to see again.
“Hopefully we can get Dillian Whyte a shot at the championship before.
“We’ve got to line these guys up, third, fourth, fifth fight, because we’re going to need them.”
The Matchroom supremo says Team AJ are willing to drop a belt in order to make the big fights happen.
Hearn said: “At some point you might have to vacate a belt, if it’s a fight that no one wants to see, if it’s a fight that’s not for the benefit of the fans.
“If it’s a fight that isn’t for the benefit of Anthony Joshua’s career in terms of where he wants to get to, maybe.
“Again it’s going to be very difficult to maintain all the belts.”
