Former World Heavyweight Champion Anthony Joshua will return to the ring at the end of March, said his promoter Eddie Hearn. He does not yet know who will be his opponent, but for the summer they are planning a big fight against Dillian Whyte or Deontay Wilderwho has the opportunity to conduct a qualifying fight according to the WBC version against Andy Ruiz.

“At the moment, Joshua plans to fight at the end of March, and we are working on it,” Hearn told DAZN. Could Wilder be his opponent? Maybe. I am open to discussion. Because of the Andy Ruiz situation and stuff, I thought it might be possible in the summer but definitely in 2023. We are more than willing to discuss it.”

“Obviously the Dillian Whyte win last weekend sort of paved the way for the fight against Joshua, but we also understand that Joshua-Wilder is one of the biggest fights in boxing. So we are open to organizing this fight next or after one fight, ”added Hearn.

“Maybe Wilder’s team wants to postpone the fight with Ruiz, or maybe they want to do it. I need to talk to Shelley today. [Финкелем, менеджером Уайлдера]the promoter continued. “There are many options for Deontay Wilder. First, we have a fight with Anthony Joshua, it’s a big fight for Wilder. We also have a fight with Dillian Whyte for him. I still want to have a White vs. Wilder fight. I would love to discuss both of these fights.”
