Hearn provides update on Joshua’s fight on 13 April

Eddie Hearn says Anthony Joshua will possibly not defend his World Champion title on 13 April at Wembley Stadium.

Since beating Alexander Povetkin, Joshua and his team have been negotiating with Deontay Wilder’s and Dillian Whyte’s teams, but failed to reach agreement.

“It looks like April 13 is unlikely,” said Hearn (via Boxingscene).

“I think Dillian thinks, for a fight like that, he’d want a bit more time.

“So, if we do the Whyte fight, I think we move it to May or June anyway. But the Jarrell Miller fight is very close for June at Madison Square Garden.”

Eddie Hearn named three fights for Dillian Whyte in case Joshua fights Miller next
