The heavyweight scene is booming at the moment with both Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder looking to be declared the best heavyweight on the planet.

Both are in action in the coming weeks.

On October 28th, in Cardiff, Anthony Joshua makes a mandator defence of his crowns against the rugged Kubrat Pulev, whilst on November 4th, Wilder makes a defence of his WBC title against Luis Ortiz.

Here at Vital Boxing we?d be very surprised if either of the champions slipped up and suffered a defeat

But, once both emerge victorious, it appears that Eddie Hearn wants to put together a heavyweight unification fight to decide who is the undisputed champion.

Talking to the media, Hearn has remarked,

?We want the winner; simple as that.

?We?ll look at a fight in February or March. That was a key to boxing in October ? to box three times next year. Joshua will have boxed twice this year, next year we?ll box February or March, then the summer. If Joshua vs. Wilder or Ortiz is not February or March it has to be in the summer.?

It seems any plans to match Joshua with Joseph Parker have been put to one side after the Kiwi disappointed in beating Hughie Fury and with about only a third of the venue tickets sold.

Could Hearn be guiding Joshua towards a Wilder fight but also plotting to give Dillian Whyte a world title chance against Parker?

Your thoughts on the above, in our comment facility, would be most welcome.
