Anthony Joshua has an April 13 date to fill at Wembley Stadium for the next defence of his IBF, WBA and WBO heavyweight titles after defeating Alexander Povetkin on Saturday.

Here, Press Association Sport examines those in contention to be his next opponent.

1. The winner of Deontay Wilder v Tyson Fury

Wilder, the WBC champion, next defends his title against former unified champion Fury on December 1 at a US venue that will be confirmed in the coming week. The winner that evening will feel he has established himself as the world’s leading heavyweight, as well as possessing the only title to so far elude Joshua.

Either against Joshua for all four world titles, to establish an undisputed champion, would become the most lucrative fight in the division.

2. The winner of Dillian Whyte v Dereck Chisora

On that same July evening Chisora secured perhaps his finest win by stopping Carlos Takam. Whyte will be the favourite for if and when their rematch is made, and would prove a popular opponent having forced an entertaining fight when being knocked out by Joshua in December 2015.
