The Croatian is on the hunt for a worthy opponent as he looks to become a world champion.

And Hrgovic has fixed his sights on Joshua, with both men promoted by Eddie Hearn.

AJ is already making moves about beating Jermaine Franklin in his last fight.

It’s reckoned Joshua will take on fellow Brit Dillian Whyte in August.

And that could pave the way for a highly-anticipated bout against Deontay Wilder in December.

There could even finally be an epic encounter against Tyson Fury further down the line.

But Hrgovic is hoping he gets a go at Joshua in the near future.

The ‘Animal’ has won all 15 of his fights, with 12 coming by way of knockout.


He’s already made light work of big names including Eric Molina and Zhilei Zhang.

And after seeing a bout against Andy Ruiz Jr fall through, Hrgovic is now lining up Joshua for a showdown.

He’s certainly confident of winning, telling Boxing News: “I’ll destroy him. I think I’ll destroy him. If he comes in this shape I’ll destroy him.

“I expected more [against Franklin]. I thought he was going to knock him out, but he was too cautious and didn’t let his hands go.

“It was a decent performance but nothing spectacular. He needs more fights to get back into real shape. People expect to see more from the former two-time champ.

“He was a little bit slow and sleepy, not aggressive. If he wants to become champion again then I’m in his way. I’m IBF mandatory and he should fight me next.”
