Two-time heavyweight champion, Anthony Joshua could be up to face Filip Hrgovic for a world title next.
The former champion will get this chance if IBF champion Oleksandr Usyk decides to vacate his belt to pursue a fight with Tyson Fury for the WBC title.
Recall, Joshua lost his IBF, WBA, WBO, and IBO titles to Usyk. The British-Nigerian is now looking up his options following his third defeat in his last four bouts after a proposed bout with Fury went south after talks were in advanced stages.
There is now a glimpse of hope that his next fight could be for a belt with Usyk looking to defend the WBA, WBC, and WBO titles against Fury.
The Ukrainian would then have to vacate his IBF crown, meaning IBF would order Hrgovic and Andy Ruiz to meet for the vacant strap.
But, Ruiz is seeking a fight with Deontay Wilder and if that happens, Joshua would be the man to take his place.
