Window opens for Anthony Joshua to become World Champion again



Anthony Joshua may once more become a world boxing champion, even with bigger stake.

If he is able to beat Deontay Wilder in the main undercard bout of the Tyson Fury versus Oleksandr Usyk bout that will unite all four heavyweight belt in Saudi Arabia, he will be in line to challenge the winner.

Joshua will thus be a world heavyweight champion for the third time should he beat the winner of the unification battle.

Manchester-born Tyson Fury and Ukrainian opponent Usyk will clash in Saudi Arabia – the ‘Mecca’ of sporting events – with a view to being crowned the first undisputed champion in the four-belt heavyweight era.

A deal for that blockbuster fight has already been rubber-stamped, but no firm date has yet been put in place.
