Boxing promoter Eddie Hearn shared his thoughts on the Alexander Usyk-Anthony Joshua rematch, which will take place on August 20.
Hearn notedthat Joshua is now in excellent condition and is aware of his previous mistakes, Ukrinform reports.
“I think Joshua is confident in his plan for a rematch. He knows what he’s going to do. He is in excellent condition now. Knows about mistakes made in the past. Knows what needs to be done to fix them. If Joshua loses, then only to the P4P leader, but it is obvious that Anthony wants to win. If this happens, I believe that the duel with Fury will take place. If Joshua concedes, he will again be a contender,” said the promoter.
Usyk vs Joshua will be held in Jeddah (Saudi Arabia).
As reported, last fall, Usyk defeated Joshua by unanimous decision, taking away all the championship belts.
The winner of the fight can meet for the title of absolute world heavyweight champion with another Briton – Tyson Fury.
