Next fight of Oleksandr Usyk is not determined yet.
Alexander Usyk (18-0, 13 KOs) counted on a fight for the WBO heavyweight belt with Anthony Joshua (24-1, 21 KOs), but then there were talks that he could give the green light to AJ's duel with Tyson Fury (30-0-1, 21 KOs), for a while, giving up the chance for a championship in exchange for a certain amount of money. Now everything goes to the fact that the Ukrainian can get, at least for now, a title fight for the interim title with Joe Joyce (12-0, 11 KOs), without additional reward.
There has been a long debate about the future of the WBO heavyweight belt currently owned by Anthony Joshua (24-1, 21 KOs). The Briton would like to take with him the World Boxing Organization trophy in the unification fight with Tyson Fury (30-0-1, 21 KOs), but Alexander Usyk (18-0, 13 KOs) stands in the way of such a scenario, demanding - as a mandatory contender for WBO title - immediate bout against AJ.
Anthony Joshua (24-1, 21 KOs) says he is determined to fight Tyson Fury (30-0-1, 21 KOs). The Briton is not even discouraged by the prospect of losing the WBO belt for abandoning the mandatory defense with Oleksandr Usyk (18-0, 13 KOs).
