Saturday night, at the 02 Arena, saw Anthony Joshua register the fourteenth straight win of his professional career, with all fourteen having come inside the first three rounds.

The 97 second demolition of the previously unbeaten Gary Cornish saw the Watford heavyweight keep on schedule for the 12th December clash against his rival from Brixton, Dillian Whyte.

However, another London fighter, the former world heavyweight champion David Haye, has been talking in the press about a domestic tear-up with Joshua as the Bermondsey fighter finally starts to contemplate a comeback after his serious shoulder injury that required correction by surgery.

But, Joshua?s promoter, Eddie Hearn, is certain that taking on David Haye isn?t the way forward at the moment, remarking,

?David Haye talks about fighting again but he will want the right payday to come back, which I am not sure is there for him.

?Joshua against Haye is a monster fight but we are not really looking at Haye.

?David Haye is a great fighter but we are looking at world titles and it doesn?t really apply to that strategy.?

And on the subject of world titles, Hearn urged caution, further remarking,

?I believe he would beat any heavyweight in the world, including Klitschko. I don?t think anyone thinks Deontay Wilder beats Joshua.

?Those fights will happen 100 per cent in the future.

?But from a management perspective, it is not the right time for those fights.?

Hearn is perfectly correct, first Joshua needs to silence Whyte and then move up another level taking on those who hover around the top ten in the world before moving in for the kill!
