Hearn does not exclude the possibility that Joshua will refuse to rematch with Usyk

Eddie Hearn confirmed that Anthony Joshua (24-2, 22 KOs) may consider giving up the rematch with Oleksandr Usyk (19-0, 13 KOs), if he receives an appropriate financial offer, which will also ensure his meeting with the winner of the fight between Usyk and Tyson Fury (31-0-1, 22 KOs).

“At the moment we are focused on the rematch with Usyk, and until we are presented with a really good offer that I can show Anthony, which makes sense, our plans will not change,” said the British promoter.

“Joshua wants to have a rematch with Usyk, but if all this can lead to the fact that he will box for four belts instead of three, then perhaps he should think about it. Joshua wants to get guarantees to meet the best in the fight, Fury-Usyk. He may also change coaches, so there are some things that affect his decision,” added the head of Matchroom Boxing.

If somehow the fight between Usyk and Fury takes place, all the main heavyweight titles will be at stake. Such a fight could take place at one of the UK football stadiums.
