Anthony Joshua’s undercard for his next fight on September 21st at Wembley Stadium will have some interesting fights for fans. Joshua’s opponent for the headliner could be Daniel Dubois if the IBF heavyweight title is available for the fight.

Jai Opetaia: The Cruiserweight Champ Features

According to boxing insider Dan Rafael on X, these are some of the possible fights/names on Anthony Joshua’s undercard on September 21st at Wembley:

– Jai Opetaia
– Hamzah Sheeraz
– Joshua Buatsi vs. Willy Hutchinson
– Fabio Wardley vs. Frazer Clarke 2

Thus far, Opetaia is the featured fighter on Joshua’s September 21st undercard, but we’ll see what additional fights are added before then.

Opetaia  (25-0, 19 KOs) recently captured the vacant IBF cruiserweight title last month on May 18th, beating Mairis Briedis by a twelve-round unanimous decision in their rematch at the Kingdom Arena in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

That was another tough fight for the 28-year-old Opetaia, who jumped out to an early lead but then struggled from the pressure Briedis put on him in the championship rounds.

Middleweight Hamzah Sheeraz (20-0, 16 KOs) recently stopped Austin ‘Ammo’ Williams in the eleventh round on June 1st in a WBC 160-lb title eliminator.

Since that fight, Sheeraz has expressed interest in fighting #3 WBC Chris Eubank Jr., which would appeal to domestic British audiences but not so much to fans outside of the UK.

U.S fans would prefer to see Sheeraz challenge for a world title against WBC middleweight champion Carlos Adames, IBF/WBO champ Janibek Alimkhanuly or WBA belt-holder Erislandy Lara. However, I don’t think Sheeraz, 25, is ready for any of those champions, and he might be better off fighting the 34-year-old Eubank Jr. rather than getting roasted by one of them.

Eddie Hearn: The Best Card the Country’s Ever Seen

Joshua’s promoter,  Eddie Hearn, told IFL TV that undisputed super bantamweight champion Naoya Inoue won’t be on the September 21st card.  “If things go the way we’re all planning at the moment, it’ll be the best card the country’s ever seen,” said Hearn.

It could be a great card if Hearn matches Joshua against Daniel Dubois, but that might be too much to hope for. Dubois is dangerous, young, powerful and ambitious. He’s all wrong for Joshua.
