There’s a good chance Anthony Joshua will face Ukraine’s boxing legend Wladimir Klitschko in the ring again; at least that’s how his promoter Eddie Hearn put it.

‘The next step for Anthony Joshua will be announced in the next three or four weeks – it’s likely to be Wladimir Klitschko,’ Hearn said as quoted by BoxingScene.

He added that the British still has to fight against the IBF title contender Bulgarian Kubrat Pulev whom Klitschko KO’d several years ago.

Last month, Wembley stadium in London hosted the bout where younger and faster Joshua outmatched the Ukrainian veteran. Klitschko held out there decently, putting up eleven rounds before the referee waved the fight off and once even managed to knock down the British. However, Joshua recovered and downed the ex-world champion several times on his own.
