ANTHONY JOSHUA’S big nights under the Wembley lights in April looks set to be postponed.
The boxer’s promoter Eddie Hearn has revealed that a failure to sort out an opponent could lead him to “pull the trigger” on a spring showdown in London.
A rematch against Dillian Whyte or a fight over in the US against loudmouth American Jarrell Miller now seem much more likely options.
Speaking to Sky Sports, Hearn said: “I think if the Dillian Whyte fight happens, it’s likely that will be pushed to May or June now.
“I think Dillian feels April 13 is too early for a fight, with that kind of build-up.
“Jarrell Miller is still live for early June at MSG [Madison Square Garden, Las Vegas.
“I think over the weekend, we’ll make our final decision, and get an announcement out next week.”
The boxing public are desperate for AJ to lay the WBO, WBA, IBF and IBO heavyweight world titles on the line against WBC king Deontay Wilder or Tyson Fury.
And Hearn has not completely ruled out some late and dramatic action to get his man’s next fight deal thrashed out.
He added: “Tyson Fury could phone me this afternoon and become the front runner. Things can change all the time.
