Eddie Hearn has confirmed are ongoing for Anthony Joshua to step aside to allow a undisputed title fight between Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk.

 

 

But the promoter insists it would take at least £40million for Joshua to give up his rematch.

Joshua lost his heavyweight titles to Usyk in September and immediately triggered his rematch clause with the Ukrainian.

 

 

The bout is still expected to take place at Wembley next spring – but Fury is pushing to be allowed to face Usyk instead, with the winner then defending his belts against Joshua.

 

 

Fury remains most likely to face Dillian Whyte, however, who is shortly expected to be called as his fellow Brit’s mandatory challenger.

 

 

Hearn has previously criticised Fury’s co-promoter Bob Arum for suggesting Joshua should step aside, telling them the rematch is “.

 

 

But the Matchroom Boxing supremo has now admitted Joshua could do just that – albeit for a price.

 

 

Asked if it would require a seven-figure sum, Hearn said: “Seven figures? A million? If you want to get him not to fight Oleksandr Usyk you have to times that by 40…”

 

 

Hearn continued: “At the moment there is communication between the two teams to say is it something… and the answer is AJ has not been spoken to about this yet.

 

 

“I’ll deal with it and when I feel there’s an opportunity for Anthony and 258 [Management] we’ll sit down with them and present it to them but I won’t do that until it’s the right opportunity.
