Two-time heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua is confident he will overcome his British rival Tyson Fury when both faceoff in a unification fight.
The Britons are in possession of all the belts in their division following their victories over Andy Ruiz and Deontay Wilder in December and February respectively.
Although, the Bronze Bomber appeared to have triggered the trilogy clause in their contract - which means there will be part three of his fight with the Gypsy King.
Daily Mail quoting DAZN report that the WBA, IBF, and WBO titles holder is expected to face mandatory challenger Kubrat Pulev this summer.

The bout might shifted instead as it appears fans and stakeholders want all the belts unified - hence the need for Joshua and Fury to battle sometime this year.
Although, it is unsure when any of the listed fights would be staged owing to the widespread of deadly coronavirus across the globe.
It has forced most of the sporting activities to be suspended while others shifted entirely to the coming year.
But Joshua told DAZN: "I'm working towards beating Tyson Fury, whether the bookmakers, believers or doubters want to be with me or not, I have to believe it. I am working towards beating Tyson Fury.
"In a way, it is overlooking Pulev but I've got to look through Pulev because I am going to walk through Pulev, that's the mindset. When it comes to Pulev, he isn't on my level. I'm walking through him.
"I want the boys at the top and I'm working through them all, that's the mindset we have to have as fighters. So I'm looking at Tyson Fury like I'm going to walk through him as well."
Though, bookies have tipped the WBC champion as the favourite for the clash of the titans having demolished Wilder at the MGM Grand Arena in late February.
Joshua added: "When Tyson Fury is ready, I will not turn down that fight. I'm looking at the wider picture, I am thinking like the challenger and the underdog."
Briefly.co.za earlier reported that two-time heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua has challenged recently crowned WBC champion Tyson Fury to a fight.
Both boxers are in possession of all the titles in their division following the Gypsy King's emphatic victory over Deontay Wilder in February.
Fury stunned the Bronze Bomber at the MGM Grand Arena two months back after making him kiss the canvass in the seventh round of their fight.
