ANTHONY JOSHUA has been offered red hot fights against either Joe Joyce or Daniel Dubois after Tyson Fury left him out in the cold.
AJ is set to return in early 2023 following consecutive losses to Oleksandr Usyk and failed talks to face Fury in December.
Now, his two heavyweight rivals are set to meet in a historic unification bout next year.
It leaves Joshua, 33, frozen out of the title picture but promoter Frank Warren is ready to offer him a pair of alternative fights.
Warren told iD Boxing: “We’ve got better fights to put on now.
“He had his opportunity and as I say we have bigger and better fights.”
He added: “I have no problem making him against Joe Joyce or Daniel Dubois if he wants to make his way back into the top table.”
Joshua is linked with comeback fights against Dillian Whyte, 34, and Deontay Wilder, 37, as he prepares to overcome his latest setback.
It comes while Fury, 34, and Usyk, 35, enter talks for the heavyweight division’s first four-belt unification bout.
The two came face to face after the Gypsy King dominated Derek Chisora, 38, to win for the third time in their trilogy series.

Afterwards, Fury said: “We’re hopefully gonna see the biggest year of my career. We’re gonna get the big fights that the fans really crave.
“First of all let’s talk about Usyk. I’m ready, I’m willing, to take on Usyk next – whether it’s gonna be in Saudi Arabia or back here in the UK. Both places will be fantastic.
“And let’s give the fans one champion, one name, one face. Usyk’s up to the challenge. He came over tonight, so fair play to him.”
