After the breakdown of the fight with Tyson Fury, it became finally clear that the former WBA, WBO, IBF, IBO champion Anthony Joshua will not enter the ring this year.
Nevertheless, as promoter Eddie Hearn explained, next year could be a very busy year for the British boxer.
Joshua might have two or even three fights in 2023 and there's already a list of potential opponents.
According to Hearn, there's some progress on the agreements with Otto Wallin and Philip Khgrovich.
On top of that, the manager of the British boxer is betting on the winner of Dillian Whyte vs Jermaine Franklin fight.
All in all, next year Anthony Joshua will have many chances to return to the winning ways.
