GET STUCK IN
Eddie Hearn has warned that Anthony Joshua will need to hurt Usyk should the pair come face-to-face in a rematch.
Joshua lost all his titles to Usyk following the Ukrainian boxer’s masterclass performance which led to the Brit’s defeat on points.
Hearn told iFL TV: “This rematch, whether you think AJ can win or not, I’m telling you, it will be entirely different and write him off at your peril.
“You’ll see a different Anthony Joshua in this fight, and that’s our excitement. The disappointment of defeat and now revenge.
“We’ve been here before, and now a three-time heavyweight world champion. That’s the new dream. He’ll do his work.
“Now, I’m excited because that rematch is going to happen early next year, and if he does it, which I believe he can, he’s on a whole new level.
“This game plan is not box and move, this plan is to go in and hurt Usyk.”
