Information reaching Ibom Focus that Anthony Joshua To Face Usyk For Second Time In A Rematch

Oleskandr Usyk’s promoter Alex Krassyuk has confirmed that Anthony Joshua has activated his rematch clause.

Joshua was defeated in tremendous fashion by the Ukrainian, who put on a clinic of ring craft and technique on Saturday night.

And a rematch clause was put in the contract for the initial meeting, in event of the Briton losing his unified world titles.

Now Krassyuk has established that Joshua was already committed to a rematch between the pair, and activated his right to the second meeting.

According to my understanding he has already activated the rematch clause,” Krassyuk told Boxing Social.

“Because the first thing he said when he came in the ring to the corner was ‘We will see you in the rematch’.

He didn’t even consider it as a possibility, it was just a decision already and I heard that Hearn and AJ himself were discussing the rematch not just as fact.

“They were also discussing the time, and what Joshua has to do to win so I think it will happen and only some extraordinary circumstances will change it. But as of right now, the rematch will happen.

“As of now we are getting ready mentally for the rematch, and I also believe that Tyson Fury will get knocked out by Wilder so won’t play any part. That is my hunch.”

Joshua was set to face domestic foe Fury in Saudi Arabia this summer, but was forced to take the defence against Usyk after the ‘Gypsy King’ took a trilogy with Wilder.
