Anthony Joshua Ends Speculation Of Step Aside…..Warns Promoters To Stop Further Negotiations

Published

Anthony Joshua has warned promoter Eddie Hearn not to come to him with a step aside offer for his fight with Oleksandr Usyk unless it’s too good to turn down. The two-time heavyweight champion is due to face Usyk for a second time having lost his titles to him in London earlier this year.

 

 

Anthony Joshua issues ultimatum over Tyson Fury vs Oleksandr Usyk fight
The two-time world heavyweight champion has been entertaining the notion of accepting a step aside offer for his contractually obligated rematch with Usyk to allow Fury to unify the division next year.

 

 

Anthony Joshua has warned promoter Eddie Hearn not to come to him with a step aside offer for his fight with Oleksandr Usyk unless it’s too good to turn down.

 

 

The two-time heavyweight champion is due to face Usyk for a second time having lost his titles to him in London earlier this year. And while talks are ongoing about staging the fight next April, Joshua recently stoked talks of stepping aside, to allow Usyk to unify the division with Tyson Fury instead.

 

 

However, the Brit has told Hearn not to even approach him with an offer unless it is something that could be very beneficial to him in the long run.

 

 

“We’ve had some approaches about this,” Hearn told the DAZN Boxing Show. “No real deep conversations but just in regards to the concept, the concept being ‘you let Fury and Usyk fight for the undisputed and then fight the winner’.

 

 

“Yesterday, Anthony said to me ‘just to sort of warn you, a step aside is against everything I believe in,”

 

 

Joshua almost immediately triggered his rematch clause with Usyk after being comprehensively beaten for the unified titles at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in September.

 

 

But in a recent interview with iFL TV, he admitted that a very tempting deal to step aside, that would benefit his career, may see him allow Usyk vs Fury to happen.

 

 

“All he wants to do is fight Oleksandr Usyk, and he trusts me,” Hearn continued.

 

 

“If some kind of plan comes up that is a great financial package and more importantly gives him more time to gel with a new trainer and then go into a massive fight for huge money later in the year and I think that’s right for his career then I should let him know.

 

 

“But he said ‘let me warn you, when you do that, you’re under threat yourself because I don’t want to do it’.”
