Anthony Joshua will have a new trainer for his next fight, whether or not that is an April rematch against Olexsandr Usyk for the cluster of heavyweight belts the Ukrainian maestro ripped from his grasp.
Tyson Fury will have a UK homecoming fight on March 26, whether or not that is a defence of his WBC championship against mandatory challenger Dillian Whyte.
Joshua has not absolutely ruled out taking a £40million fortune not to fight anybody and let Fury and Usyk get on immediately with finding out which of them will become the first undisputed world heavyweight champion of the four-belt era.
Whyte is still trying to negotiate a bigger pay day for a Fury fight than the mere 20 per cent share of the booty he would receive if that issue goes to a purse bid, which is now likely to be delayed beyond next Tuesday’s date in Mexico City originally set by the WBC.
The protracted legal wrangle between Whyte and the WBC which is locked into arbitration could throw a spanner into all those works in progress.

What Hearn does know for sure is that Joshua will have a new boss man in his corner next time out, with or without his long-time trainer Rob McCracken, who remains head coach to UK Olympic boxing, is still in his team.
With Joshua still hurting from his humiliation by former undisputed cruiserweight champion Usyk, Hearn believes AJ would be taking a greater risk by standing still.
