The well-known manager Egis Klimas, representing the interests of heavyweight Alexander Usyk, said that they are not abandoning their attempts to achieve a duel with the world champion in three versions Anthony Joshua, who has a much more famous name than Joe Joyce.
“If you can box for three titles with Anthony Joshua, who needs this Joyce,” Klimas told YouTube channel FightSpace. – “And so we in no way underestimate Joyce. I think that he would have created problems for Usyk. That is, only God himself knows what would have happened. It’s hard to say. Usyk’s team does not have such that they underestimate their rivals. Me I think they really would have had a good fight. But if there is an opportunity to box for a large number of titles with a bigger name like Joshua, and we have the opportunity to choose, then our choice is Joshua. “
We will remind, earlier Klimas said that Sergei Kovalev is thinking about changing the weight category.
