Exclusive: Eddie Hearn gives an update on the future of Anthony Joshua

AJ has one fight left on his deal with Sky Sports Box Office...

Eddie Hearn has refused to comment as to whether Oleksandr Usyk will be Anthony Joshua's last fight on Sky Sports Box Office or not.

Joshua is preparing to defend his WBA, IBF and WBO heavyweight titles against the Ukrainian mandatory challenger on September 25.

The pair will collide at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium and as it stands, it is the final fight in Joshua's deal with Sky Sports.

His promoter Eddie Hearn left the broadcasting giants to join streaming platform DAZN - an exclusive deal to promote boxing shows in the UK for the next five years.

Hearn has started Matchroom Boxing's brave new era with three Fight Camp cards and Josh Warrington's rematch against Mauricio Lara.

Dillian Whyte will feature on the platform on October 30 but Joshua's future is up in the air.

Hearn admitted he is only looking at the best business move for his fighter despite his relationship with DAZN.

"Our contract with Anthony Joshua, he is with Matchroom. We do not push him to Sky or DAZN.

"We push him to the best commercial deal for him in association with 258, Freddie [Cunningham] and AJ who is the boss," Hearn told Planet Sport.

"So we're not looking to bring in AJ to DAZN. Every broadcaster would love Anthony Joshua and that's the problem that we are faced with now.

"Sky, BT, DAZN, Amazon, there are so many different broadcasters who have the desire to land Anthony Joshua.

"Sky - a great platform for pay-per-view - he's hit some incredible numbers there and right now it's just a focus on Usyk. In the situation of AJ, it's not the choice of Sky or Matchroom and DAZN.

"AJ's with Matchroom and we will work together commercially for the best opportunity for him and we will look at all opportunities. We'll sit down with him, 258 and make the best decision for him."
