Anthony Joshua is in line for a rematch with Dillian Whyte which has left British fans with another upset to look forward to after Christmas.
Promoter Eddie Hearn expressed his desire to put the pair together for a second fight after the pair enjoyed a six-round sparring match in 2015.
Joshua vs Whyte 2
AJ finally lands a devastating dropkick. However, with their history and the fact that Joshua is weaker than ever, the opportunity to do it in the heavyweight division is too good to pass up for Hearn.
If that is confirmed, Joshua will continue to be the favorite as Matchroom puts two of the biggest heavyweights in the ropes in a commendable effort.
Joshua vs Whyte 2 is expected to take place in January unless something changes in the meantime.
Whyte must come through Jermaine Franklin next month to potentially seal the deal.
Meanwhile, the WBC honored Joshua’s opponent Oleksandr Usyk – the man who beat him twice. He received the Ukrainian flag belt.
It was presented during a charity event organized by the Oleksandr Usyk Foundation at the Beverly Hills Hotel in California, USA.
During the event, a charity auction was held, which was attended by dignitaries. The organizers will send all the money raised to the Usyk Foundation.
The president of the WBC, Mauricio Sulaimán, attended this Gala night to support. He joined the call for peace in the world.
“WBC congratulates Amir Bahadora, Egis Klimas and Oleksandr Usyk. Everyone involved in this important event,” said Sulaiman.
The Usyk Foundation is a non-profit organization founded by champion Oleksandr Usyk. It supports Ukrainians affected by the Russian occupation to meet their daily needs.”
Both individuals and companies can support the Usyk Foundation’s solidarity activities. More details, including donation contact information, can be found at usykfoundation.org.
Usyk is expected to fight Tyson Fury in the first half of 2023. The pair had a discussion, with Bob Arum confirming that Fury is facing Chisora because the Brit gave Usyk problems when they fought in Halloween 2021.
