Although a date and venue has been announced, the potential opponent remains a mystery – despite Dillian Whyte, 30, Tyson Fury 30, and Deontay Wilder, 33, seemingly the front runners to face Joshua, 30.

However, Warren claimed it is Usyk, 31, who will be in the opposite corner to Joshua come April 2019, via the Daily Star.

He said: “I am now hearing Joshua’s next opponent for April 13 is not going to be Dillian Whyte and will be Oleksandr Usyk, let them get on with it.

“I know why they want to fight Usyk, he is a smaller guy and not much of a puncher.”
