Anthony Joshua may be on the path to a "collision course" with Deontay Wilder as they both aim for a final eliminator to face Tyson Fury. WBC president Mauricio Sulaiman is determined to establish an undisputed heavyweight champion.

Joshua and Wilder set to compete in separate bouts

Both Joshua, 34, and Wilder, 38, are scheduled to compete in separate bouts on December 23rd. Joshua will face Otto Wallin, while Wilder will take on Joseph Parker. If both British and American fighters emerge victorious, they are likely to face each other next year.

WBC president confirms elimination tournament

Sulaiman has confirmed that Joshua and Wilder would battle it out to fight the winner of the Tyson Fury vs Oleksandr Usyk fight for the WBC title. Fury and Usyk are set to go head-to-head on February 17th, with a rematch expected to follow.

Sulaiman stated, "In itself it is a natural WBC elimination tournament. You have Wilder, No 1, Joshua, you have Parker, you have Otto Wallin, all those are highly ranked in the WBC. After December 23 we're going to see a different picture in the rankings. It looks like Wilder and Joshua are on a collision course. That could very well be a final elimination to determine a mandatory contender for the WBC title."
