Joshua, who has previously fought a Cardiff’s Wembley and Principality stadiums in front of 90 000 noisy fans, defeated Andy Ruiz Jr in Saudi Arabia in December and is expected to take on Bulgarian Kubrat Pulev in a mega boxing ring affair in a few months. He plans to sell out the 60 000 capacity Tottenham Hotspur Stadium for this one.

“We’ve had offers in from the Far East, Middle East, Africa, America and Turkey [to stage the fight],” Hearn told Sky Sports according to a BBC Sport report. “He wants to fight in London in June. Spurs is the frontrunner and that’s what he’s asked me to do. He’s made it very clear to me, ‘I want to come home. I’ve been to Madison Square Garden, I’ve been to Saudi Arabia, bring me home.

He has said to forget all the other offers and bring him home,” added Hearn of the two-time unified heavyweight champion, who in December controversially offered to be fellow British boxer, Tyson Fury’s sparring partner ahead of the fellow-Brits’ rematch with American WBC heavyweight champion, Deontay Wilder.
