Following his defeat at the hands of Ukrainian Boxer, Oleksandr Usyk, British Boxer, Anthony Joshua has asked for a rematch.
Usyk’s handler, Alex Krassyuk confirmed this on Tuesday, just three days after last Saturday’s defeat of Joshua in London.
Joshua was heard saying “see you soon” to Usyk in the dressing room after the fight, while his promoter, Eddie Hearn, has insisted that the two boxers will meet again in early 2022.
Krassyuk has now told Boxing Social: “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’.
“So he didn’t even consider it as a possibility, it was just a decision already.“I heard at the press conference Eddie Hearn and AJ himself were thinking about the rematch not just as a fact, but they were discussing the time when it is going to happen, what AJ has to change to win so I think it will happen.
“Only some extraordinary circumstances can change it but as of now, it will definitely happen.”
