Boxing promoter Eddie Hearn believes Anthony Joshua could be one win away from fighting for the undisputed heavyweight world title, despite a two-fight deal in place between champions Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk.

Joshua takes on ex-UFC champion Francis Ngannou in Saudi Arabia this Saturday.

WBC belt holder Fury will face Ukraine's unified champion Usyk in May, also in Saudi, and the winner will be crowned the first undisputed heavyweight champion in the four-belt era.

Hearn says the dream for Joshua has always been to be undisputed, and if AJ beats Ngannou and Fury beats Usyk, the whole world will be calling for Fury v Joshua.

He says it is probably one of the biggest fights in the history of the sport and certainly the biggest fight in boxing now.
