Oleksandr Usyk Open To Fighting Tyson Fury Next…Following Anthony Joshua Willingness To Step Aside, The Ukrainian Confirms

Chinese heavyweight contender Zhilei Zhang also “heard chatter” that Joshua is mulling over taking a different fight, it has been revealed.

 

 

Joshua has already triggered a rematch clause to fight Usyk again next year for the IBF, WBA and WBO titles that he lost to the Ukrainian star.

 

 

The rematch is targeted for 2022, although a date or location is yet to be finalised.

 

 

Fury, the unbeaten WBC champion who has twice demolished Deontay Wilder, has no rival for his wish of a return in February or March because Joshua and Usyk are seemingly on a collision course, and Dillian Whyte has not been confirmed as his mandatory challenger.

 

 

Joshua’s promoter Eddie Hearn did not comment in response to Krassyuk, but had told Sky Sports that plans were being put in place for the second fight with Usyk.

 

 

“AJ is already in camp physically and mentally for the Usyk rematch, and it’s all he has thought about since the night of the first fight,” Hearn said last month.

Fury and Usyk have never lost in 51 combined fights and own every belt in the heavyweight division.

 

 

Top Rank’s Bob Arum, who promotes Fury in the US, previously told Sky Sports: “If Joshua decides not to exercise his rematch against Usyk and decides to step aside, the fight we would like to make is between Usyk and Fury.

 

 

“Then Joshua can fight the winner of the undisputed fight.

“That’s what Tyson would like. And I represent Tyson. That is his preference.”

 

 

Zhang, the unbeaten contender from China who added a knockout win to his record last weekend, is keen on facing Joshua if the chance crops up.
