Is Cornish Set to be Joshua’s Next Opponent?

Eddie Hearn promised the Boxing public that he’d be bringing Anthony Joshua back to the O2 Arena, on 12th September, and that his opponent would see the venue filled.

Well it seems that the venue, as is often the case, will be filled, but will the opponent have everyone gasping?

The latest name to be thrown into the hat is the unbeaten Scottish heavyweight, Gary Cornish.

Cornish, who has a record of 21-0 with 12 coming by way of knockout, has started to make a name for himself in the division.

Now whether Cornish and his team reckon their man is the man to be the first to defeat Joshua or are banking on their man taking a big pay-day from the show, remains unclear.

It could be a win-win situation for Cornish, even if the Scot were to lose but were to take Joshua further than any of his other opponents, all of whom have failed to hear the bell for the sound of the start of the fourth round, his name would be another entering into a round of discussion relating to bright British heavyweight prospects.

How about it Eddie, let us know what is going on please!
