    Usyk

    Oleksandr Usyk wants a rematch with Anthony Joshua — but hopes it will be held in his native Ukraine.

    On Saturday night Usyk overcame Joshua in the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium with a majority decision. In his favor, the judges gave 117-112, 116-112, and 115-113. It took place in the north London area in a total masterclass of 65,000 hostile fans.

    Joshua, now on the 24-2 record, ended the fight against cords and was fortunate that his adversary would not knock out.

    In a showdown for all the world’s heavyweight titles, Brit’s hopes of meeting domestic rival Tyson Fury were also left out by the outcome, which Usyk claimed the WBA, WBO, IBF, and IBO belts.

    Joshua is, though, expected to invoke a clause giving him a rematch, and Usyk was asked after the fight where he would want the return bout to take place.

    “I would love to have the rematch at Olympiyskiy Stadium in Kiev,” he replied.

    Joshua’s promoter Eddie Hearn dropped a heavy hint that the rematch would, however, take place in the United Kingdom.

    “We will work together to maximise (the income), Ukraine is very unlikely,” said Hearn.

    “I think it will be international or the UK, I would think it would be in the UK.

    “It’s going to be really difficult because Usyk’s confidence will be sky-high, but when you get to the level of Anthony Joshua, as we saw after the Ruiz defeat, there’s no 10-round comeback fights and warm-ups.

    “It’s straight back into the fire and he will want to go straight back into that rematch. He will be an underdog in the rematch this time after that tonight, but that’s what he does.”
