Well-known sports journalist Michael Benson spoke about the terms of the contract that were agreed upon during negotiations between the teams of Alexander Usik and Anthony Joshua. According to his information, Eddie Hearn confirmed that a rematch will be included in the contact if Anthony Joshua is defeated. Both sides agreed to this, even though this fight will be a mandatory defense of the WBO title for Anthony and usually there is no revenge in such fights.
The contract also includes an agreement according to which, in the event of Usyk’s defeat, Eddie Hearn will be obliged to organize another fight for him. This is by no means devoid of logic – Alexander Usyk is quite famous among British boxing fans, and a fight with the main star of Great Britain, even if he loses, will raise his shares even higher.
