Anthony Joshua's promoter Eddie Hearn to hold talks with Deontay Wilder camp this week over April Wembley showdown
The WBC heavyweight champion retained his title at the Staples Center controversially against Tyson Fury after judges scored the contest a draw.
Wilder, 33, put the Gypsy King down twice during the fight, but was outboxed against the Brit star who deserved to have his hands raised as victor.
Immediately after the clash, both men called for a rematch, but the Bronze Bomber could potentially be involved in a huge unification bout against AJ on April 13.
A rematch against Dillian Whyte remains the most likely option should he defeat bitter foe Dereck Chisora later this month.
Hearn took to Twitter earlier today to reveal he was flying out to LA, and speaking to the Daily Mail, the 39-year-old claimed AJ against Wilder remains a possibility.
He said: "First we need to find out what is happening with a Wilder-Fury rematch and whether the rematch clause we are hearing about is what it seems.
"'If anything, the way that fight went on Saturday works in our favour in terms of getting Wilder. That has always been the fight we want because he has the last belt.
"Now, let's say he had beat Fury in two rounds – the negotiation will be a lot harder than after a draw where many think he was lucky to keep his WBC title. That goes in our favour.
"It might also be the case that Wilder fancies his chances in a punch-out with AJ rather than another go at Fury. As far as AJ is concerned, he will fight anyone. He would love Wilder next and he has always wanted Fury.
While he added: "Before we were looking at Deontay Wilder, Dillian Whyte or Dereck Chisora if he beats Whyte for April 13. Now we can put Fury on that list.
Joshua though has sparked furore on social media after he liked a tweet which said he will never fight either Fury or Wilder.
Meanwhile, Billy Joe Saunders has been left outraged after Fury failed to get the decision against Wilder, as he tweeted: "Some time you have to think is boxing corrupt and fixed."
