Anthony Joshua isn`t going to give up

Former world heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua (24-2, 22 KOs) is set to fight two fights this year.

The first one is a rematch against Oleksandr Usyk (19-0, 13 KOs), which will take place on August 20 in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.

And the second fight, according to Eddie Hearn, is planned for December. Moreover, regardless of the result of the fight with Usyk.

“We really want to get active with AJ. I think he’s struggled with activity lately. Whatever the outcome of the Usyk fight, he wants to fight again in December,” says Hearn.

 “Obviously, we’re going for the win,” continues Eddie. “If so we’d look straight for the Tyson Fury fight for undisputed. It’s the biggest fight out there in boxing, the biggest fight of all time. I believe actually that AJ-Fury will happen regardless of August 20th.”
