Oleksandr Usyk-Anthony Joshua rematch discussed for Saudi Arabia in June

World heavyweight champion Oleksandr Usyk’s rematch with Anthony Joshua is prone to happen in June with Saudi Arabia among the many venues being thought of, his promoter advised Sky Sports activities.

Usyk beat Joshua in entrance of a sell-out crowd on the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in September to grab the WBA, WBO, IBF and IBO belts.

Following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, Usyk returned to his homeland to hitch a territorial defence battalion, elevating doubts a couple of rematch with Joshua.

Nevertheless, ESPN reported last week {that a} struggle between the 2 boxers would happen this summer season after the Ukrainian sports activities minister gave Usyk permission to go away the nation.

“[Saudi Arabia] is under discussion at the moment,” Usyk’s promoter Alexander Krassyuk told Sky Sports. “Late June is also the timing we are considering now. Many things will depend on how fast we manage to ink the papers.

“The great factor is that Usyk is already in Europe to begin his preparation.”

The winner may very well be in line for a unification bout with WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury, who faces Dillion Whyte at Wembley Stadium on April 23.
