Anthony Joshua is set to turn his attention to Oleksandr Usyk if an undisputed fight can’t be secured with the winner of Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury, according to promoter Eddie Hearn.

Wilder and Usyk set to face off on February 22.

WBA, WBO and IBF champion Joshua looks set to come up against Kubrat Pulev next, following his fight with Andy Ruiz Jr.

“I just think that whoever wins [Wilder vs Fury 2] and if AJ beats Pulev, which we hope he does, basically the whole world is going to say ‘we have to see that fight,'” said Joshua’s promoter Hearn.

“I’m hoping that we can manoeuvre something there. If not, we fight Oleksandr Usyk, if he beats Dereck Chisora, and if Joshua beats Pulev.”
