“The championship of the OMB will be vacant after the first fight, “he commented Eddie hearn in an interview with The Express. “If there is a contract for two fights, the undisputed champion should defend the championship against the winner of (Oleksandr) Usyk Y (Joe) Joyce, which just won’t happen. It’s good for me, because first we want to unify ”.
Among the plans was that Joshua Y Fury unifying the titles of the entire division, but one of the impediments to the super match taking place was that Oleksandr Usyk He was the mandatory rival for him OMB and I wanted to fight against AJ.
However, the Ukrainian agreed to fight Joe joyce for the interim belt that, in the words of Hearn, it will become a future at all.
