They last met at London’s Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, but look set to reacquaint themselves overseas.

As per Michael Benson, promoter Eddie Hearn revealed last week that he was set for meetings around the world over potential venues for his client’s next fight.

Today, the Matchroom supremo has been at Dubai’s Burj Al Arab, a stunning venue that has hosted top athletes before… including Joshua.

The 32-year-old enjoyed a sparring session on the hotel’s iconic helipad while promoting Dubai Fitness Challenge.

The stunning location could host pro boxing

Others have pointed out the logistical challenges that hosting such a big fight there would present.

One commented: “It would be unique and interesting but you’d barely be able to sell any tickets. Would be just like the lockdown period.

“AJ is second biggest ticket seller arguably in boxing. Why would Ed pass up chance to earn a decent buck.”

While another pointed out: “I was there Sunday, I could say first hand that this would be very challenging.

“How would they cover security, guests and the world media when it’s a hotel?”
