Frank Warren is planning to match Daniel Dubois, Joe Joyce and Nathan Gorman before the end of the year.
Greenwich heavyweight Daniel Dubois faces Richard Lartey at Wembley’s SSE Arena tonight.
And he is set to face Olympic silver-medallist Joyce this summer – with promoter Warren agreeing a deal with both fighters.
It was announced on Thursday that Joyce, who used to boxing for Earlsfield ABC, had signed a promotional contract with Warren.
Warren said: “At the moment, us and BT Sport have the next crop of British heavyweights to come through in Joe, Daniel Dubois and Nathan Gorman.
“That is a good line-up and I am hoping all these guys are going to end up fighting each other between now and the end of the year.
“I matched George Groves and James DeGale early in their career and both went on to win world titles. It won’t be the end of the world if any of them lose. It’s how you come back from defeat.
“British boxing has the best heavyweights and they are coming along like buses. It is as good as it gets.
“Anthony Joshua’s next fight is in the United States, Tyson Fury’s next two will also be over there so this is a good time for fans to see the next generation of heavyweights.
“Of those three guys, I’m know one and possibly two will become world champions and
“We have built a platform on BT Sport that I think has overtaken the domestic market and we are the leading British promoter in this country. There’s no doubt about it.”
