New Unified heavyweight champion, Oleksandr Usyk’s promoter has revealed that a second fight between USyk and Anthony Joshua will ‘definitely happen’ as the British-Nigerian boxer activated his rematch clause with the Ukrainian,
Usyk, the former cruiserweight champion, 34, silenced the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Saturday with a boxing masterclass to claim the WBO, WBA, IBF and IBO world titles from his Joshua.
The dominant nature of Usyk’s victory has left many fans and pundits adamant that Joshua has little chance of reclaiming his belts from the Ukrainian but that has not deterred Joshua, who has now activated the rematch clause.
Usyk’s promoter, Alex Krassyuk said;
‘According to my understanding, he has already activated the rematch clause because the first thing he said when he came to our corner was ‘we will see again in the rematch” he told Boxing Social.
‘So he didn’t even consider it as a possibility, it was just a decision already.
