Eddie Hearn reveals who Anthony Joshua will fight if he will not face Tyson Fury

Dillian Whyte and Anthony Joshua could meet in an undisputed title fight if Tyson Fury refuses to make a mandatory defence and is stripped of his belt promoter Eddie Hearn said.  Whyte takes on Alexander Povetkin on Saturday night, aiming to finally propel himself into a WBC title fight with Fury. "Looking at the bigger undisputed picture, all Joshua wants is the WBC title," Hearn told Sky Sports News. "He was never worried if it came against Wilder or Fury. Whoever! Whoever owns that belt is who Joshua will face for the undisputed championship. "We know the winner of Saturday's fight will be ordered to face the winner of Fury vs Wilder. If Fury does not want to fight Whyte, then Whyte will be elevated to champion from interim champion. Now I do not like that. "But what will happen? Joshua will fight Whyte straight away for the undisputed championship. You always want to fight a champion. But if Fury refuses to do a fight that has been ordered by the WBC, then he will be stripped of his title. "Then Whyte will be fighting for the undisputed championship. Whyte has had the bad end of the stick for a long time but could end up, if he's successful, fighting Joshua for the undisputed championship. So this is massive for him." Source: Sky Sports
