Anthony Joshua

Anthony Joshua could vacate the belt of the completes of the OMB, in accordance with Eddie hearn, as AJ it does not want to accept the demands of the governing bodies.

“It has to be an appropriate circumstance. If the belt goes, it will have to go, “he said. Hearn in order to Social Boxing. “In an ideal world we would keep it, we always want to have it. But we’ll see what happens ”.

The fall of combat with Tyson fury, according to the president of Matchroom, has been the main reason why Joshua He would not have any type of guarantees to fulfill his desire to unify the division of the complete ones in 2021.

For that reason, he could vacate the scepter of the OMB if a suitable situation is not reached to defend it.

“The most likely scenario is that we will fight with (Oleksandr) Usyk if the agreement and all are adequate, “he said Hearn. “That fight must happen. But I’ll tell you something AJ it is not in the mood to pay attention to what the organisms say. The reality is that there is no guarantee for a unification fight right now. “

The undefeated Ukrainian is for many one of the best pound for pound of today, so it would mean a significant challenge for Joshua in the quest to maintain the belts prior to the fight with Tyson Fury.

However, Tyson at the moment it is focused on the closing of the trilogy with Deontay Wilder.

“All other names like Andy Ruiz, Luis Ortíz Y DIllian Whyte are at stake and we will do what is best to AJ, nothing more ”, he considered. “I am in talks with the manager of Usyk and that’s the most likely fight we have for now. “

This situation and the mandatory order that it has Usyk makes him the most likely candidate for the return of Joshua in 2021.

However, Hearn He has not ruled out that the belt could finally get out of the Briton’s hands.

Joshua wants to be undisputed champion and that is why we must consider the options “, he considered Hearn. “Why do we keep that belt now? For a dream, for a promise or whatever. Joshua respects his belts and wants to honor them as he has done for the last four years. “

The fight with Usyk could arrive at the end of June and, if he wins, Joshua would take the final step to finally seek unification with Tyson fury before the end of 2021.
