If the negotiations to fight with Tyson fury they fall, Anthony Joshua I would seek to face Oleksandr Usyk in his mandatory fight for the WBO.
“Our absolute focus is that if AJ defeat Pulev the next thing is that I fight twice with Tyson fury in 2021 ″, said the promoter of Joshua, Eddie hearn, in statements to ESPN. “If that’s not possible, then we would look for your mandatory challenger from the OMB, What is it Usyk“.
Y Eddie hearn contemplates that possibility because he sees a legal dispute coming between the Tyson fury and those of Deontay Wilder about what the contract says for the third fight between the two.
“I can anticipate that a litigation is coming from Deontay Wilder and its handler Shelly Finkel, about Wilder against Fury“, said Hearn, “But we have to go about our business, and do our things.”
The main objective of Joshua, according to his promoter, is to be the undisputed heavyweight champion.
“It has always been our plan that Anthony Joshua become the undisputed heavyweight champion, but if the fight cannot be made with Fury, then we would fight with Usyk in the first or summer of 2021 ″, he added Hearn.
So probably something knows Eddie hearn about what comes to Tyson fury, which could get into a legal dispute against the team Wilder to keep him out of the ring for a few months.
