Promoter Eddie Hearn believes that Anthony Joshua is the "real deal" following the boxer's decision to turn professional last week.

Matchroom promoter Eddie Hearn believes that Anthony Joshua has the potential to be a force in heavyweight boxing.

The 23-year-old turned professional last week following his gold-medal success at the London 2012 Olympic Games.

"Obviously the heavyweight division is one which everybody gets excited about and I think we've got the real deal here," Hearn told BBC London 94.9.

"I think we've got someone who can go on to achieve great things in the sport and the heavyweight division."

Joshua will make his debut on October 5.
