'Notorious' comfortably dispatched Donald Cerrone at UFC 246 in January and could be in line for a clash with Justin Gaethje in the summer.

He told ESPN: "I think a fight on July 11 would bring the UFC back to life and get everybody back on track. My fingers are crossed and I'm sure the rest of the world fingers are crossed for that fight.

"Anyone to be honest but you know maybe Gaethje. There is a lot of talks about Gaethje.

"I mean he is an exciting fighter. I would like to see it, I'm sure you'd like to see it and the rest of the world would like to see it.

"Yeah potentially that, but to be honest, anyone. I know Conor is ready to go and everyone will be ready to go by the time July comes around."

Anthony Joshua is currently set to take on mandatory challenger Kubrat Pulev at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on June 20 but that date has been plunged into doubt by the Bulgarian himself.

Pulev has explained that the the fight taking place on that date will be 'impossible'.

'AJ's' promoter Eddie Hearn is reportedly in discussion with Spurs to have the bout pushed back a month.

Hearn explained: "A requirement for Anthony in his next fight, a necessity for him, was to box in the UK.

"June 20 is a long time away, it's still in our plans. We have been speaking to Tottenham and making sure that we're all on the same page.

"For the Anthony Joshua fight, there are already potential plans to move that fight back to July."

Two days before that on July 18, WBC heavyweight champion Fury will take to the ring to face longtime rival Deontay Wilder for a third time.

'The Gypsy King' dominated Wilder in Las Vegas last month but 'The Bronze Bomber' has insisted he will regain his title and blamed his loss on the suit of armour he wore to the ring.

Buckle up sports fans we could be in for a huge few weeks in the summer.
