Eddie Hearn, co-promoter of the Ukrainian heavyweight title contender Oleksandr Usik (18-0-0, 13 KO), said that his ward is ready to terminate the contract in case he does not fight the WBA / IBF / WBO champion, the British Anthony Joshua (24-1-0, 23 KO).
“He’ll leave unless we get him and AJ together,” Hearn said. – The problem is that we already have a guy who stepped aside for the fight for the absolute championship, and this is Jack Catteral. All the confusion is that there is a lot of money at stake, and everyone wants to grab their piece of the pie. “
Recall that the British welterweight fighter (up to 63.5 kg) Jack Catteral refused the opportunity to immediately compete for the WBO title so that Josh Taylor and Jose Ramirez could play the title of absolute champion in the first half of this year.
