Could one of these be in the mix for the Juggernaught?
It was seven months later then it was expected but the domestic clash of the heavyweights between Joe Joyce and Daniel Dubois finally took place, Saturday night with Joyce being crowned the British and European heavyweight champion.
The fight ended in the ninth round when the left eye of Dubois closed up from swelling, and some reports of a broken orbital bone was the cause of the injury.
So the big question is, as Dubois was the number 2 ranked by the World Boxing Organization, whos the next in line to take on 'The Juggernaut'?
OLEKSANDR USYK Usyk, fought Dereck Chisora on Halloween, and the Ukrainian is the number 1 ranked fighter in the WBO. With the reports circulating that Anthony Joshua will be relinquishing the title, a fight between Uysk and Joyce would happen for the vacant championship

FILIP HRGOVIC Hrgovic is ready for a step up in opponents following his last win on the undercard of Haney and Gamboa. Hrgovic is highly ranked by all the organizations and the fight would be a real test for both men.
ANDY RUIZ JR We at Intuboxing have put Ruiz's name in the next 5 fights article for Chisora and as we know Ruiz Jr is in the gym with Canelo and is working hard to be in shape ahead of a return to action, following his loss to Joshua.
DANIEL DUBOIS Dubois for the first time as a professional tasted defeat to Joyce, and would relish a rematch. Pictures have surfaced which had Dubois ahead on the scorecards by two judges, one had Dubois ahead by 1 point 86-85 and the other had Dubois up by 5 points 88-83. If Dubois injury heals well, could a rematch be on the cards?
