The Top Rank CEO has been locked in negotiations with Joshua’s representative Eddie Hearn of Matchroom Sport over a potential unification bout this coming summer.

The Matchroom supremo insisted on Sunday that only a few minor issues are yet to be resolved in the latest indication that both British stars will soon fight to become the undisputed heavyweight champion of the world.

Joshua, the IBF, WBA and WBO titleholder, retained his belts against Kubrat Pulev on Saturday, but has never fought his fellow Brit, who kept his WBC belt by beating Deontay Wilder in February.

The IBF/IBO/WBA/WBO heavyweight champion realises Pulev stands between him and the biggest British boxing match in the sport’s history, a showdown with WBC champ Tyson Fury in 2021.

Joshua and Fury look set to finally fight next year, as long as AJ beats Kubrat Pulev next weekend and the Gypsy King either comes through a proposed bout in early 2021 or simply waits for the super fight in the summer.
