Joshua To Fight Winner Between Fury, Usyk –Hearn

Joshua To Fight Winner Between Fury, Usyk  –Hearn

Boxing promoter Eddie Hearn has confirmed that Anthony Joshua will fight the winner between Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk if he defeats Daniel Dubois at Wembley in September.

Recall that Joshua’s last fight was in March when he brutally knocked out Francis Ngannou in the second round in Saudi Arabia.

However, in a chat with The Sun, Hearn stated that their first priority is for Joshua to regain the world heavyweight title, and obviously undisputedly, that’s always been the dream.

‘I expect the winner of the December fight to fight Anthony Joshua, if he wins in September.

‘There’s no decision yet made on the opponent, there’s three or four in the mix. But yeah, that’s the absolute plan.

‘The first priority is to regain the world heavyweight title and obviously undisputed’s always been the dream.

‘So I think we’re two fights away from becoming undisputed. But, we’ve got to win them.’

Last month, Usyk beat Fury via split decision after the judges scored the bout 115-112, 113-114, 114-113 in a historic showdown.

The Ukrainian’s victory meant that he became the first boxer since Lennox Lewis in 1999 to unify the heavyweight division after taking the WBC title off Fury, which was added to his WBA (Super), WBO, IBF and IBO titles.
