Anthony Joshua’s promoter Eddie Hearn announced that Las Vegas will likely host his proposed rematch with Wladimir Klitschko.
Eddie Hearn has sensationally revealed that he’s been working behind the scenes to broaden Joshua’s appeal in America by having him fight in Las Vegas.
Joshua, the IBF, WBA and IBO champion, has seen his popularity surge in the States already. By hosting the rematch in the Mecca of boxing, Hearn believes Joshua will be able to fully conquer the US marketplace.
His previous battle against Klitschko was watched by an audience of over 90,000 spectators at Wembley.
The contest has since gone down in history as one of the greatest heavyweight fights in generations.
The British heavyweight world champion is still awaiting final confirmation from Klitschko’s camp that he’s willing to face him in a rematch.
At 42 years old, Klitschko is said to still hold reservations over accepting a rematch with the youthful Joshua.
Although Klitschko appears close to agreeing to the rematch he may also choose to retire.
