Anthony Joshua could target a unification clash against Deontay Wilder if he wins his Wembley fight with Wladimir Klitschko, says Barry Hearn.
IBF champion Joshua can add the vacant WBA ‘super’ title when he faces Klitschko in front of an expected sell out crowd at the national stadium on April 29, live on Sky Sports Box Office.
Matchroom Sport chairman Hearn believes Joshua will stake his claim as the world’s best heavyweight by defeating Klitschko and hopes he will end the year with a Las Vegas fight against WBC champion Wilder.
“I think the dream is to unify the division,” Hearn told Sky Sports News HQ.
“Politically, boxing is always difficult, because there are so many different governing bodies and so many different mandatories that inevitably at some stage you are forced to give up a belt, rather than have them all under control of one heavyweight.
