Eddie Hearn, promoter of IBF, WBA, WBO and IBO heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua, said that his fighter may meet Oleksander Usyk at the end of this year.
Oleksander Usyk will not be able to fight against Carlos Takam due to injury. This was announced on Tuesday by the head of the promotion company Matchroom Boxing, Eddie Hearn. The debut of the Ukrainian unified cruiserweight champion was set on May 25 at the MGM National Harbor arena in Oxon Hill, Maryland.
The Secretary General of the Russian Boxing Federation Umar Kremlev expressed the dubious thought that Oleksander Usyk (16-0, 12 KOs) would have no chance in a fight against Murat Gassiev (26-1, 19 KOs) if the rematch is in heavyweights:
IBF, WBO, and WBA heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua admitted that he would be interested in a fight with Ukrainian Oleksander Usyk. But Joshua plans to hold this fight only after a potential meeting with Deontay Wilder. On June 1 Joshua will face Andy Ruiz, who replaced Jarrell Miller.
British heavyweight contender Dillian Whyte has named his top five heavyweights in the world. He reacted to the rating of promoter Eddie Hearn, who previously made his top five. Hearn recognized as the best Anthony Joshua, followed by Tyson Fury, Dillian Whyte, Deontay Wilder and Oleksander Usyk.
