Old Trafford, the Theatre of Dreams is being considered as a potential venue for Anthony Joshua’s next outing.

As proven in his last three contests, Joshua has no problem selling out Britain’s most prominent stadia, and fans from the northwest of England could be treated to a fight close to home before 2018 is out.

‘AJ’ has fought in Cardiff’s Principality Stadium in back-to-back bouts and, before that, he and Wladimir Klitschko put on an epic war in Wembley.

And now, Matchroom chairman Barry Hearn has admitted that Old Trafford could well be next for the WBA, WBO, IBF and IBO heavyweight champion.

Joshua may seal a deal with American WBC champion, Deontay Wilder for undisputed world title.
