Anthony Joshua looks torn in early practice photos ahead of Oleksandr Usyk’s rematch as Eddie Hearn hits Tyson Fury
| Local News | Today Headlines
Anthony Joshua already looks torn and perfectly prepared for his rematch with Oleksandr Usyk, tentatively scheduled for April 2022.
The Briton relinquished his WBA, WBO and IBF heavyweight world titles at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in September as he failed to overpower the former cruiserweight king.
Usyk, another Olympic gold medalist, was too elusive and too sharp for Joshua, who failed to make the case for his vastly superior physical advantages.
Although he is three inches taller, weighs almost 20 pounds, and has a four-inch reach advantage, Joshua was taken aback and almost finished in the capital.
In an interview with iFL TV following the fight, Joshua said he wanted to bring “war” and “murder” to the rematch with the Ukrainian southpaw.
It appears the 31-year-old is determined to act by heading to his training camp for the fight early, looking torn and ready in a series of social media posts.
Promoter Eddie Hearn previously told talkSPORT that March or April would be the perfect time for the sequel, despite an offer from Tyson Fury’s side to step down and cap an undisputed heavyweight title fight.
Talk to iFL TV, Hearn said: “We have to get together and decide on a date.
“April is realistic for this fight. AJ is the type to fight twice a year, and sometimes it feels like it would be nice to fight three times a year.
“We have received offers from all over the world, but I think the UK will host this fight.”
