Kubrat Pulev is ready to challenge Anthony Joshua behind closed doors due to the global coronavirus crisis.
The Bulgarian is due to take on the heavyweight world champion at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on June 20.
But with boxing in Britain suspended until at least May, there is little prospect of the fight taking place as scheduled.
Promoter Eddie Hearn has pencilled in July 25 as an alternative date – but even that may be unrealistic.

Pulev, therefore, is prepared to challenge the Brit without the atmosphere generated by 60,000 fight fans.
“I’m ready for June 20, July 25, whenever they say,” he said. “You see what the situation is, the whole world must adjust to it.
“There’s no problem (if the fight is) to be without spectators. Everyone would be at home, they can pay per view, so I don’t see any problem financially.
“The show could be lost a bit without fans but it can still happen. After all, it’s a world championship, which must take place.”
