However, Chisora has revealed that Joshua will headline a Wembley Stadium event later this year, with the plan being for him to take on the winner of Daniel Dubois and Filip Hrgovic.

Chisora disclosed the plan during an interview with iFL TV, stating, “He will fight the winner of Daniel Dubois and Hrgovic in Wembley. F*** it, I’ve got a big mouth. That’s the plan. It’s gonna be a sick, a little adventure for Turki Alalshikh to bring it back to London.”

The anticipated fight between Dubois and Hrgovic is likely to occur on the undercard of Artur Beterbiev and Dmitry Bivol’s undisputed clash in Saudi Arabia on June 1. Notably, there’s a possibility that the bout could be for the IBF world title if the organization enforces Fury or Usyk to face their mandatory challenger Hrgovic.

Furthermore, rumors suggest that another significant heavyweight showdown between Deontay Wilder and Zhilei Zhang, both of whom suffered defeats to Joseph Parker in their previous fights, could also feature on the card.

Joshua’s promoter, Eddie Hearn, has expressed optimism about the potential for a fight between Joshua and Fury if the latter emerges victorious against Usyk next month. However, Fury’s promoter, Frank Warren, remains steadfast in honoring the two-fight undisputed deal, potentially postponing a showdown between Fury and Joshua until March.

It seems Anthony Joshua’s path to a heavyweight title shot or the undisputed titles is set in stone after his four-fight win streak.
