The possibility of a bout between the two heavyweight titans is frequently mentioned.

Frank Warren posits that a matchup between Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury might be delayed until the following year.

Fury is scheduled to clash with Oleksandr Usyk on May 18, broadcasted on DAZN PPV, in Saudi Arabia to determine the undisputed heavyweight champion.

Yet, with a rematch clause in place and the considerable earnings at stake for both matches, the promoter deems it improbable that either boxer would decline a second encounter, regardless of the championship titles.

On the other hand, Joshua’s most recent bout was a victory over Francis Ngannou, where he secured a second-round knockout earlier this month.

This scenario could prompt Joshua to seek an alternative bout, possibly for a world title if any of the belts become available following the initial Fury vs. Usyk fight.

When inquired about Fury’s schedule for the year involving Usyk, Warren shared with Sky Sports: “One of them is, definitely! These guys are getting massive, massive purses for these fights.

“The loser I’m quite sure will trigger the rematch clause because of the finances that are involved. Next March if Tyson does what I believe he’ll do and AJ continues to win, I’m sure that’ll set up a big fight.”
