An Anthony Joshua Vegas showdown with Wladimir Klitschko looks set to be announced any day for the rematch.
Speculation had grown in recent times that Las Vegas was the front runner for the Joshua vs Klitschko rematch following Matchroom boss and Joshua promoter Eddie Hearn flying to Sin City last week in a bid to finalize terms with the relevant casinos involved in the bidding process.
T-Mobile Arena and MGM Grand appear to both be leading the way and reports recently suggest that November 11th or 18th could stage what could be the part two between the two heavyweights.
Their first fight captured the public’s imagination on both sides of the pond after what turned out to be a titanic slug fest full of knockdowns and heavyweight bombs.
Anthony Joshua has added further fuel to the fire today that the rematch will be in Las Vegas after he posted this picture today outside Floyd Mayweather’s gym in the fight capital of the world earlier:
His message: “It’s only right … AJBXNG / TMT ” suggests he will be supporting Floyd Mayweather in his upcoming fight with Conor McGregor on August 26th.
