Legendary boxing promoter Frank Warren has said he is confident that the heavyweight clash will happen this year in either May or June.
However, Warren has also warned that the bout may not take place in the UK, despite the pair both being British. This is because of the current coronavirus pandemic strongly affecting the UK.
The highly-anticipated fight that fans all over the world having been pining for is increasing in certainty, and with the new developments of Oleksandr Usyk being contacted for a reported fight with Britain’s Joe Joyce, it is more likely than ever.
Now, the Ukrainian looking towards Joyce, this can set up the heavyweight unification bout between arguably the two best heavyweights in the division.
The unification bout would be the first since back in 1999, when legends Evander Holyfield and Lennox Lewis went toe-to-toe between the ropes.
“That is what the agenda of everybody who is concerned is and we will do all we have got between us all to make sure it happens”.
