Joshua vs. Pulev is next if Klitschko rejects rematch
Anthony Joshua will find out in two weeks if he is set for a blockbusting heavyweight rematch with Wladimir Klitschko.Promoter Eddie Hearn is working on the fight, which would be worth even more than their £40m Wembley thriller last month.
Heavyweight champion Joshua is also set to retain the IBF belt if he faces the Ukrainian again, despite fears he could be stripped. But should Klitschko retire then Joshua will face mandatory challenger Kubrat Pulev, most likely at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff this Autumn.Klitschko, 41, is currently on holiday with his family and will decide his next move when he returns.
