Hearn Lays Out Options For Joshua After Parker
With Deontay Wilder set to face off against Luis Ortiz on March 3rd, and Anthony Joshua less than a month away from a March 31st unification bout with Joseph Parker, Joshua’s promoter Eddie Hearn is preparing for the future, with or without Wilder on the table.
As mentioned this week, even though Wilder has made it a point to call out Joshua for an eventual unification fight, Hearn claims that his boxer’s next fight will be in the United States, but possibly against Jarrell Miller and not the current WBC heavyweight champion.
In an article released by Boxing Scene, Hearn claimed that there are a litany of possibilities for Joshua if he walks away the winner against Parker.
“Anything could happen – Jarrell Miller could be beaten [by Johann Duhaupas], we might fight Deontay Wilder next, the WBA might call their mandatory.”
“If we box in America and it’s not Wilder, Miller will be the perfect guy.”
In regards to Alexander Povetkin, the aforementioned WBA mandatory, Joshua may be inclined to take him on next as he attempts to become the first Undisputed champion in nearly two decades.
“We will fight Povetkin – he is on the radar – and AJ isn’t about to vacate any belts. He must become the undisputed champion.”
