Anthony Joshua Set For Rematch Towards Oleksandr Usyk

Britain-Nigerian heavweoight boxer, Anthony Joshua has triggered his clause for a rematch towards heavyweight rival Oleksandr Usyk.

The combat might happen in March, Joshua’s promoter Eddie Hearn mentioned.

Joshua misplaced his WBA, WBO, IBF and IBO belts to Ukraine’s Usyk on a unanimous factors resolution at London’s Tottenham Hotspur Stadium final month.

“He (Joshua) has bought his head again within the sport,” Hearn instructed DAZN on Saturday. “He’s coaching now and as we speak we formally triggered the rematch for the Oleksandr Usyk combat, which we are going to see early subsequent spring.

“We’re searching for him to change into a three-time heavyweight world champion. I believe realistically March is while you’re prone to see the rematch.”

A potential world heavyweight unification combat between Joshua and compatriot Tyson Fury, the WBC champion, was thrown into uncertainty after Fury’s promoter Frank Warren mentioned he couldn’t see it taking place.
