Hearn: Joshua-Klitschko rematch announcement in 3-4 weeks

Eddie Hearn has been a busy promoter this week with Kell Brook and Errol Spence Jr. But in the midst of the IBF welterweight title showdown, Hearn simply cannot escape from the countless questions regarding Anthony Joshua and his next fight.

Earlier this week Hearn said that the rematch against Wladimir Klitschko will most likely happen. Even though Joshua wants to fight Tyson Fury, Hearn is confident that the Ukrainian is next. An announcement regarding the rematch is expected in 3-4 weeks according to the promoter.

“”No one wanted to see Tyson Fury back in the ring more than Anthony. The next step for Anthony Joshua will be announced in the next three or four weeks – it’s likely to be Wladimir Klitschko,” Hearn said in an interview with at the Brook-Spence press conference.

There is still the issue of the IBF mandatory challenger Kubrat Pulev and, apparently, multiple other offers on the table.

“We also need to fight [Kubrat] Pulev at some point – whether it’s not next or the one after. He [Joshua] was in the office Monday and he has untold offers from around the world.”
