Eddie Hearn, promoter of WBA, WBO and IBF heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua, has assured that his fighter is not afraid to fight mandatory WBO title challenger Alexander Usik.
“Joshua wanted to fight Fury for the title of absolute world champion, but this fight fell through. Then he received another letter that he should fight with Usyk. He has absolutely no problems, like me, he is not afraid of a fight with Alexander at all. A tendril.
At the moment, the question is simply psychology, because he is not completely satisfied with the situation, especially with Tyson Fury and his team, because we worked exclusively on this fight. So now he needs to readjust, change sparring, prepare for another left-handed opponent, “said Eddie Hearn.
Recall that Hearn also said that Joshua will look for another opponent if he cannot agree on a duel with Usyk.
