Opponents appear to be queuing up to take on the IBF heavyweight champion of the world.

Every one, as you?d expect, wants a piece of the action.

The New Zealand heavyweight Joseph Parker stands poised ready for his chance as the mandatory contender, whilst the likes of Kubrat Pulev and Bermane Stiverne are also names that are being talked about for Joshua?s 18th professional fight.

But, all three could be ignored with the inference being bandied about that the unbeaten Hughie Fury could be the next to share a ring with Joshua.

We understand both camps are set to commence talks with regards to a November bout that would see Hughie Fury, who has a record that reads 20-0 with 10 wins coming by way of knockout, given a chance to emulate his cousin, Tyson, to become heavyweight champion of the world.

Peter Fury, talking about the possibility of the fight taking place is quoted by Sky Sports as having remarked,

?He?s ready to face these kinds of fights and there?s no reason why they can?t happen. He?d be the most technically proficient fighter Joshua has faced by a mile.

?I know Eddie Hearn has some other options available to him that he mentioned when we spoke, and I?m waiting for them to get back to me but as long as the finances are right then we?ll take it.?

It?s a tempting fight for Joshua, who I?d take to win inside eight rounds. Get one win over a Fury on his record to set up a meeting with another perhaps?
