Eddie Hearn, promoter of the WBA Super / IBF / WBO heavyweight champion, Briton Anthony Joshua (23-1-0, 22 KO), said that it would not be a problem for their team to organize a fight with the mandatory WBO challenger, Ukrainian Alexander Usik (18-0-0, 13 KO), after an alleged victory over the Bulgarian Kubrat Pulev (28-1-0, 14 KO) in December.
“It is very likely that the WBO will sanction this fight. If we can’t come to an agreement with Fury, and I don’t think so, Anthony will fight Usyk. Many people will say ignore him, but he is a brilliant fighter.
Styles do the fights, of course, and AJ has no doubt that he will knock Usyk out. But now all Joshua is focused on is meeting Pulev, “Hearn summed up.
