Anthony Joshua is already preparing “physically and mentally” for a resit with Oleksandr Usyk, a firm refutation of Tyson Fury’s hopes of securing his own undisputed fight.
WBC Champion Fury’s “Preference” for to be next opponent would be Usyk, in An battle the crown division’s No 1 heavyweight, in instead of Dillian Whyte, his promoter Bob Arum had told: air sports.
But Joshua has rejected the suggestion that he could”step apart” from his rematch with usik.
“A.J. is” already in camp physically and mentally for the Usyk rematch, and that’s all he’s been thinking about since last night of the first fight,” his promoter Eddie Hearn told” air sports.
“I have an appointment scheduled with [Usyk’s promoter] Alex Krassyuk to start working on suggested locations for the spring rematch.
“It’s a huge” fight and we believe AJ can become a triple world heavyweight champion.”
Usyk gave a masterclass to win Joshua’s IBF, WBA and WBO belts who straight away triggered are entitled to a rematch.
“We’ve Got Three” options in consideration: the UK, Ukraine and the Middle East,” Usyk’s promoter Krassyuk . told air sports.
“Hopefully by the end of 2021, we will be in the position to the final decision.”
A WBC Deadline for Fury and Usyk agree on an undisputed title fight has since expired – they never were in talk because of Joshua is fast decision to exercise its rematch clause.
The same WBC ruling claimed that if no deal were struck between Fury and Usyk, Fury would be forced to face the interim champion, Dillian Whyte.
But the WBC chose not to name a mandatory challenger for Fury this week, despite expectations they could end Whyte’s long wait for a chance.
Furys in US-based promoter Arum told: air sports: “Whyte is an excellent fighter. When the time comes, he will come” soon, for Tyson to find out out to be next opponent, then Whyte should be at the top of the list.”
Arum’s suggestion that Joshua’s promoter Hearn has now responded to was: “The alternative is that if Joshua decides not to exercise his rematch against Usyk and decides to step aside, the fight we would like between Usyk and Fury,” Arum said.
“That’s a fight to unite the titles once and for all.
“Then Joshua can… fight the winner of the undisputed fight.
“Why can stand in line and fight the winner in the end.
“That’s What Tyson Would Do” like. And I represent Tyson. That is his preference.
“If she want until fight each other, what I believe they are doing? I would facilitate it.”
