Anthony Joshua to face winner in Fury, Usyk fight

Anthony Joshua’s promoter, Eddie Hearn, has said the British boxer will fight either Tyson Fury or Oleksandr Usyk if he defeats Daniel Dubois in September.

The boxing champion’s last bout came in March 2024 when he knocked out former UFC champion, Francis Ngannou, in the second round.

Hearn told the UK Sun in an interview that the first priority is for Joshua to regain the world heavyweight title after losing twice to Oleksandr Usyk in 2021 and 2022.

He said: “I expect the winner of the December fight to fight Anthony Joshua, if he wins in September. There’s no decision yet made on the opponent, there’s three or four in the mix. But yeah, that’s the absolute plan.

“The first priority is to regain the world heavyweight title and obviously undisputed has always been the dream. So I think we’re two fights away from becoming undisputed. But, we’ve got to win them.”

Meanwhile, in similar news…

Swedish boxer, Otto Wallin has admitted that his British counterpart, Anthony Joshua is a tougher opponent than former WBC champion Tyson Fury.

He stated this after his devastating loss to Joshua last December, which saw the 33-year-old drop out after just five rounds.

Wallin said in an interview with Boxing News; “I know that he is one of the best fighters out there. I really have no excuses, he was just better. He did really well, used his reach well, and he hit me with some really good shots.

He was just better. I think he had a good game plan. He felt like a very good fighter, and obviously, it was a much tougher fight than what I had with Tyson Fury. Maybe he’s found his home with Ben Davison.”
