Kubrat Pulev And Luiz Ortiz Next, No Deontay Wilder For Anthony Joshua - Hearn

After Wladimir Klitschko's retirement, there's a bit of an uproar in the Boxing world concerning the next opponent for Anthony Joshua.

The WBC has also brought in their Heavyweight Champion Deontay 'Bronze Bomber' Wilder to join the list of challengers which includes WBA mandatory Challenger Luis Ortiz and IBF No. 1 Pulev.

According to Hearn, He is actually working on the next fight for Anthony Joshua and admits that it will be a tough job to do since, it already has Luiz Ortiz and IBF Pulev in his plates. 

"Rather than fight anyone of note all Wilder does is call out people he knows can't fight him," Hearn exclusively told Sky Sports.

"The IBF resolution following the Klitschko fight is a public document for everyone to see: 'after the rematch there will be no request for a unification considered by the IBF'.

"Obviously we now have to fight Pulev and Ortiz and it's going to be a tough balancing act. The Pulev mandatory was called some time ago and we already have signed correspondence that if it's not Klitschko then Pulev must be next.

"I would say right now the plan is Pulev, Ortiz then if Wilder still has a belt then AJ can relieve him of that next summer."

Hearn told Sky Sports that his fighter is ready to talk face all three fighters (Pulev, Ortiz and wilder) but will have to do it the proper way.

"AJ is 100 per cent up for fighting Pulev, 100 per cent up for fighting Ortiz and 100 per cent up for fighting Wilder and he wants to do it in a way to try and capture all belts," said Hearn.
"It's going to be difficult but let me tell you this young man fears no one."
