He said, “When you have a talent like Daniel, the individual route to a world title becomes less important. Before long, he’ll be at the top of all the sanctioning bodies’ rankings and everyone will be running scared from him. If it’s AJ’s WBO title, so be it. They’ve sparred before and Daniel held his own. I’ve said before, I’d make that fight tomorrow.”

As of now, Daniel Dubois will take on his long awaited opponent Joe Joyce next. This fight was initially scheduled for early spring, but was postponed because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Though nothing is official as of now, they’re targeting a date in late October. Warren has clarified that he will only make this fight if there is a live audience attending the event.

Meanwhile, Anthony Joshua has his hands full. He is set to take on IBF mandatory challenger Kubrat Pulev in December. After that, he might also have another contest with WBO mandatory challenger Oleksandr Usyk due. And once he gets past those two, he has Tyson Fury waiting for a unifying heavyweight bout.
