Oleksandr Usyk’s promoter, Alex Krassyuk, says that his compulsory match-up against Anthony Joshua Fighter is coming soon since only three minor issues are delaying it.
Krassyuk told the Daily mail that a fight is done when both fighters are inside the ring and the bell is rung. The minor issues they had would be dealt with, and the fight would go on as planned.
They have a conference call to get around every problem and sign contracts, but some tiny risky things are improbable to happen.
Still, professionalism dictates that they secure every detail, no matter how minor, for the matches to continue as needed.
Anthony Joshua is scheduled to defend the IBO, IBF, WBA, and WBO heavyweight titles on September 25th against Oleksandr, the former unbeaten cruiserweight champion.
Looking at his recent fights, most fans believe that Joshua will get the victory in the upcoming match.
This prediction seems more likely since Usyk did not perform as well as expected in the match against Derek Chisora that gave him a shot at the titles.
To increase his odds of winning the upcoming matches, Usyk has kept Anatoly Lomachenko as his trainer. Anatoly is the father and personal trainer of Vasiliy Lomachenko, who is a three-division world champion.
All the spectators can do now is wait and see if the additional training will pay in the big fight. According to Krassyuk, the important matters have been dealt with, and the small issues are being processed. It is not a big deal; they will fix it in a few days.
The issue is the distance between them and their lawyers. They are in Ukraine while their lawyers reside in the United States. Anthony Joshua’s lawyers are in the United Kingdom, which makes communications harder.
Krassyuk confirmed that there is not much discussion left between the two groups. They need to sort out some minor legal issues before they proceed with the fight as scheduled.
