As the dust settles on Tyson Fury's win over Deontay Wilder in Las Vegas, the business of boxing continues to look ahead to a potential Fury-Joshua fight in the heavyweight division.
There is consensus that the match-up will go ahead, but where and when is currently anybody's guess.
Joining Off The Ball on Monday evening, Paulie Malignaggi believes that the showpiece may take place in Saudi Arabia - and that the Saudis may pay off Deontay Wilder to secure the bout.
"The fight in the Middle East could be made," said Malignaggi.
"The Middle East money is so ridiculous that you could actually prevent Wilder from enacting his rematch clause by paying him off.
"[His team] might say 'Listen, Deontay, the Middle East are going to give you this much money to step aside', so Deontay could make the free money without risking another beating.
"I think Deontay can still beat some very respectable opponents, so there might be a way to make this thing happen."
Fury-Joshua: would it cement Fury's greatness?
As to Fury's standing in the sport, Malignaggi believes that Fury stands among the heavyweight divison's very best ever.
"I don't understand how people forget about the Wladimir Klitschko win," he said.
"That Klitschko win was off the hook - it was crazy.
"It wasn't a fluke. Wladimir Klitschko hadn't lost in over a decade.
"The same Wladimir Klitschko went on a couple of years later to go life or death with Anthony Joshua.
"He beat a more primed-up Klitschko - a guy that was still confident in never having been beaten in a long time.
"He has got to be a bit more consistent to get everybody's attention, but for me to see what he has done and continues to do, he is in the all-time conversation, for sure."
