Joshua's promoter doubts Usyk and Fury will fight in April

Eddie Hearn, Anthony Joshua’s promoter, expressed his confidence that the fight for the undisputed heavyweight title between Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk could take place later than boxing fans expect.

“The demands of the fighters and Ramadan are the reasons why the date of the fight can be shifted. Because of this, the fight couldn’t take place in March. And I'm not sure that it will take place in April. Perhaps it will occur later. I hope this fight goes on. It's cool when there is an absolute world champion in the division. Only Saudi Arabia can afford them…,” the man said.

It is worth noting that Fury's co-promoter Frank Warren previously said that Tyson's confrontation with Oleksandr Usyk would take place on the last Saturday of April.
