If, as we expect him to do so, Anthony Joshua comfortably deals with the threat presented by Eric Molina in his second defence of his IBF heavyweight crown, the BIG fight looks next on the line.

Although Edie Hearn did his utmost to get the deal done to get both Anthony Joshua and Wladimir Klitschko in the ring, in Manchester, on 10th Dec, the promoter was thwarted by the fact Wladimir picked up an injury in sparring and the WBA dragged their heels when it came to putting the WBA super belt on the line.

However that situation has now changed, with Shannon Briggs and Lucas Browne set to fight for the regular version of the WBA heavyweight title, the WBA president, Gilberto Mendoza, has confirmed any contest between Joshua and Klitschko will now be for the WBA super title.

The huge fight is now set to take place in the first few months of 2017 and it has the potential to be the biggest fight this country will ever have staged.

Bring it on!
