Will Usyk and Joshua fight?
If negotiations with Tyson fury fall, the Watford-born team would enforce the mandatory challenge of the World Boxing Organization with that of Kiev.
“Our absolute focus is that, if AJ defeat (Kubrat) Pulev, I fought twice against Fury in 2021 ″, stated Eddie hearn to ESPN. “If that is not possible, we will look for the mandatory challenger of the OMB, What is it Usyk“.
Hearn contemplates that possibility, because he sees a legal dispute coming between the Gypsy king and those of Deontay Wilder about what the contract says for the third contest between the two.
“I can anticipate that a litigation is coming from Deontay Wilder and its handler Shelly Finkel, about Wilder against Fury “, said the promoter, “but we have to go about our business, and do our thing.”
Despite this, several specialists believe that Oleksandr Usyk I would not have a chance in front of Anthony Joshua or Tyson fury.
