33

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

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, which Moscow calls a “special military operation”, Usyk returned to his homeland Ukraine to hitch a territorial defence battalion, elevating doubts a couple of rematch with Joshua.

However, ESPN reported final week {that a} combat 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 advised Sky Sports. “Late June can also be the timing we’re contemplating now. Many issues will rely on how briskly we handle to ink the papers.

“The good thing is that Usyk is already in Europe to start his preparation.”

The winner could be in line for a unification bout with WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury of Britain.
