Anthony Joshua's next fight could take place behind closed doors as the world heavyweight champion's promoter Eddie Hearn said: 'You can't afford to sit and wait for what might be.

Joshua, who drew in the biggest post-war British boxing crowd of 90,000 for his win over Wladimir Klitschko at Wembley three years ago, had been due to face Kubrat Pulev in June at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

As Joshua's most recent fight was last December, when he regained his world titles by avenging his defeat to Andy Ruiz Jr in their rematch in Saudi Arabia, it seems his date with Pulev will not be postponed again.

'Anthony hasn't boxed for a year and the ultimate thing is he needs to progress his career,' Hearn told BBC Radio 5 Live.

'You've got two options: you either sit and wait - and that includes Anthony Joshua - maybe until next year, or you get out there and you fight, you earn your money, you learn your craft and you continue to battle through it.

'We are not prepared to sit tight and wait and we have said in these schedules, fans or no fans, our fights will be taking place.

'If you're a business, if you're a sport, you can't afford to sit and wait for what might be.
