Anthony Joshua vs Wladimir Klitschko

Joshua vs Klitschko Rematch Looks Set To Happen

Published On June 5, 2017 | By Niall Doran | Boxing News

An Anthony Joshua vs Klitschko rematch for the heavyweight championship is set to take place later in 2017 the event’s promoter has revealed.

It looks like the Joshua vs Klitschko rematch is definitely happening now after one of the fight’s co-promoters has signalled it will.

The pair fought in an epic clash in April just gone, where Joshua ultimately picked himself up off the canvas to comeback and stop Klitschko in front of 90,000 screaming fans at Wembley stadium.

The atmosphere looked something special and it appears that the demand for a part two because of it has gone into over drive.

George Gigney of the Boxing News has reported that promoter Eddie Hearn has said the rematch will definitely happen and that four venues have already bid on the fight.

Likely they could sell two Wembley stadiums out with this one. The money for the rematch no doubt is gigantic from all avenues – be it in the UK, US or Germany.

The main question will surround how much motivation with Klitschko have for it in my opinion.

The fight rated very well in Germany and the US first time around, outside of it’s whopping pay per view numbers in the UK.

It was only the third time in boxing history where Showtime and HBO in the US broadcast the same fight. The only other two being Mayweather vs Pacquiao and Lewis vs Tyson.
