Hrgovic (11-0, 9 KOs) is in action on Saturday when he meets the American Rydell Booker (26-3, 13 KOs). If he can be the first to stop the 39-year-old Booker, who has run out of world title challenger Kubrat Pulev, there will be a competitive fight in the near future.
“He is in a very good position after only eleven fights,” said Hrgovic’s co-promoter Nisse Sauerland to Sky Sports. “Our goal is to become a duty. [Current IBF mandatory challenger] Kubrat Pulev fights Joshua, then there’s Charles Martin, Oleksandr Usyk (who goes the WBO route), Michael Hunter and Andy Ruiz Jr.
“Hopefully he can jump into the top 5 with a win on Saturday.”
Sauerland has already mapped his husband’s path to the top, determining which board of directors of the four key groups he believes will recognize the 2016 Rio 2016 bronze medalist as the top contenders first.
“The IBF is the route that has opened up for us,” he continued. “The WBC title will be bound for quite a while. The IBF stick to their mandates and they are very regular. So for us this is the earliest way.
“The goal is to win a world championship title fight next year.”
The heavyweight scene has developed significantly in the past five years, having long been viewed as the shell of its previous generations.
And between WBC Champion Tyson Fury, IBF, WBA and WBO Defending Champion Anthony Joshua, challengers like Usyk, Ruiz Jr., Daniel Dubois, Joe Joyce and others, Hrgovic seems poised to be part of a revival of the “Glamor” division on the big stage.
Hrgovic vs. Booker will be held live at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Florida on Saturday, November 7th.
