Usyk, 32, would clearly like to get a big dollars fight from Joshua or Ruiz, but if he can get his hands on the WBO title, he’ll be equipped to battle a unification match from the winner of that combat.
Hearn thinks the Joshua vs. Ruiz rematch winner may vacate the Entire world Boxing Business title, as they’ve received the IBF obligatory because of at the very same time.
If the winner of the Joshua-Ruiz combat does vacate straightaway, then there is a good chance that the WBO will make the Usyk vs. Chisora combat for the vacant title.
Till Usyk speaks up, you have to acquire what Hearn claims with a grain of sand. Hearn does a ton of chatting, but a lot of what he suggests hardly ever transpires. Usyk evidently wishes the title shot for the WBO belt. Possessing to bounce by way of another hoop by struggling with the 35-12 months-outdated Chisora (32-9, 23 KOs) for Usyk, and it is probably that he won’t want to just take the likelihood.
In Usyk’s modern heavyweight debut in opposition to 38-12 months-outdated Chazz Witherspoon on Oct 12, he looked weak, small, gradual and beatable. He also marked up effortless towards a dude that shouldn’t have been equipped to lay a glove on him. It took seven rounds for Usyk to end Witherspoon, and this is a fighter that would most likely be stopped in one particular round by Joshua, Ruiz and Deontay Wilder.
