Anthony Joshua could be set for a word heavyweight title rematch against Wladimir Klitschko in Cardiff.

Joshua stopped the Ukranian at Wembley Stadium last April, but, a rematch could be set for October 28th at Cardiff’s Principality Stadium.

Speaking to BBC Sport, Matchroom’s Eddie Hearn said venues are still being discussed.

Talks are ongoing over venues.

Joshua’s historic night at Wembley was witnessed by 90,000 people, but, the closing roof at the Principality Stadium might make it a viable option.

The capacity will, however, be much less at just 74,500 people.

However, Hearn has said the rematch will go ahead, even if Joshua is unable to retain his IBF title.

Even though Kubrat Pulev is in line to face the British sporting superstar, Hearn is willing to put forward a mandatory exception request.

Mike Williams, chief executive of the Principality Stadium and the Welsh Rugby Union has said the governing body is in discussions with various promoters.

The stadium has staged various sporting events ranging from Rugby League to NFL.

Joshua’s fight at the stadium would be the fourth time a boxing event has been staged at the Cardiff venue.

The last time being when Joe Calzaghe beat Mikkel Kessler in front of 50,000 fans back in November 2007 at what was called the Millennium Stadium.
