Rematch with Joshua is a go, says Usyk


Unified heavyweight champion Oleksandr Usyk has confirmed that a rematch between
him and the former belts owner Anthony Joshua will take place next year.
The Ukrainian dethroned his British oppponent on their last bout and the latter
immediately activated the rematch clause.
“The rematch is going to happen. The promoters are going to deal with the dates and
everything. The nearest it will be is spring, or close to that,” he said via The
“I don’t think about my opponents or their changes. I think about myself and how I can
become at least a little bit better every day.
“I had felt amazing backstage, I enjoyed the walk to the ring… and even when I saw the
crowd cheering, it didn’t matter if it was pro-Joshua or not. The night was a perfect
ensemble of everything that happened that day.”
If Usyk can go 2-0 against Joshua, he would possibly face next the Gypsy King Tyson
Fury for the undisputed heavyweight match.
