Anthony Joshua's promoter reveals that Deontay Wilder is one of three potential fighters his client is considering for his next fight.

Anthony Joshua has earmarked Deontay Wilder as one of three potential opponents for his next fight, according to his promoter.

Barry Hearn has revealed that the WBC heavyweight title holder has identified Alexander Povetkin, Jarrell Miller and Wilder as possible candidates to meet in the ring.

"They're his three main choices and I expect him to make his mind up in the next seven to 10 days. He's a smart young man and the final decision is always made by him," BBC Sport quotes the promoter as saying.

Wilder has personally expressed interest in setting up a bout against Joshua, but his management team are yet to table a formal offer.

Unbeaten Joshua recently called out Wilder's camp to prove that they have the money to make the fight happen.

Joshua, who has won all 21 of his professional fights so far, is expected to name his next opponent within the next 10 days.
