Hearn hints at Parker
[.[views].], BY ICS
Eddie Hearn has revealed that IBF heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua is likely to face Joseph Parker next.
The Brit has already confirmed Manchester Arena as the venue for his second title defence, although the opponent is yet to be named.
Parker is the mandatory challenger to Joshua's belt and will face Alexander Dimitrenko in his next trip to the ring on Saturday.
Hearn has admitted that the New Zealander looks to be the most likely candidate to try and take Joshua's title but he must win against the German first.
"Joseph Parker is there and the plan was to build the Parker fight over here," Hearn said.
"I think that's a huge fight, but as time goes on, Joseph Parker looks like he will be the man.
"Obviously he's fighting Dimitrenko next Saturday. All being well, I think Joseph Parker will be the guy for November 26. We've got a few things to tie up, but their team are relatively easy to work with."
