The British Boxing Board of Control has released their latest circulars throwing up some tasty match-ups.

At heavyweight, world-rated Joe Joyce has been named as mandatory challenger to current Lonsdale Belt holder Hughie Fury.

Joyce is currently preparing for a spot on the Deontay Wilder v Tyson Fury undercard. Fury recently lost a world title eliminator against Kubrat Pulev.

With both eyeing world honors in the coming year, a fight looks highly unlikely at this point.

For the English strap, the board have ordered Daniel Dubois to fight Nathan Gorman. The clash would double up as a final eliminator for the British version.

In truth, Dubois v Gorman is much more likely to be for the vacant UK strap Fury is probably set to vacate.

At light-heavyweight, a massive domestic contest between world title challenger Callum Johnson and Josh Buatsi is up for purse bids.

Johnson v Buatsi is the most probable of the three to get over the line but still remains a long way off.
