Joshua, Usyk’s Rematch Set To Hold April 2022


Anthony Joshua will get his opportunity to take revenge on Oleksandr Usyk within the opening months of 2022, says promoter Eddie Hearn.

The pair met at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium two months ago and although the fight went the distance, it was Usyk who emerged triumphant by a unanimous decision to claim the WBA, WBO and IBF belts.

With the defeat ending Joshua’s hopes of facing Tyson Fury for a shot at becoming the heavyweight champion, at least for now, talk has centred on a rematch between the Brit and Ukrainian instead.

Hearn has previously explained that Joshua was “angry” over his defeat and wanted to “bash up” Usyk in a second meeting – and now he has detailed when that might be.

“I think it will realistically be the end of March, early April. Both guys are probably resting, although AJ will be doing a bit more preparation because he wants to get it right,” Hearn said.
