After yesterday’s victory for Anthony Joshua in revenge on Andy Ruiz, the head of the World Boxing Organization (WBO) Paco Valcárcel recalled that the champion has a mandatory challenger.
The main contender for the WBO championship belt is Ukrainian Oleksandr Usyk. And the president of the WBO believes that Joshua is obliged to enter the ring with him.
"Now clash of the mandatories will be next. WBO mandatory challenger Oleksandr Usyk within 180 days," Paco Valcárcel wrote.
Joshua answered “No problem” to such words of Paco Valcárcel, agreeing to a fight with a Ukrainian. Usyk was in Saudi Arabia during the bout. He met his potential opponent, Derek Chisora, there.
As we reported earlier, 2012 Olympic Games Champion and former undisputed cruiserweight champion of the world Oleksandr Usyk (17-0, 13 KOs) stated that his boxing career could not have taken place due to his age.
