Joshua beat Bulgarian Kubrat Pulev last month to retain his IBF, WBO and WBA titles to set up the prospect of a mouth-watering clash with fellow Briton Fury who holds the WBC belt.

Hearn said Joshua and Fury would face off in two fights – with the first likely to be in the Middle East later this year – and he hoped to bring the rematch back to Britain.
