Promoter Eddie Hearn had big plans for the rematch between Anthony Joshua and Wladimir Klitschko. He flew to Las Vegas and started making serious moves behind the scenes. The idea was to organise a British invasion in Vegas just like Ricky Hatton did when he fought Floyd Mayweather and thousands followed Hatton on the other side of the pond.
With Klitschko’s retirement, it’s time for plan B – Kubrat Pulev. Hearn has been on the fence about the venue and date, but he’s given the latest update.
