Eddie Hearn, the promoter of British boxer Anthony Joshua, says that rematch with Wladimir Klitschko can happen this autumn. 

“I believe Klitschko will go ahead with the rematch so we are looking at dates. The Principality Stadium is not really available in November because of rugby so 28 October is the option. Most of December is available but I don't really want to go that late," Hearn told The Independent.

“Josh has a bit of a sore shoulder, Klitschko has had a tough fight, his face was bashed up. You have got two more weeks in May, all of June and after that they will be thinking 'right let's get back in camp’. Even if you started back in camp in August, then you have September and October so end of October can work."

“For Cardiff that date is an option and also December but I don't really want to go into December so we are looking at the MGM in Las Vegas, China and Dubai as options too," promoter added.

As it is known, Klitschko lost the fight against Joshua on April 29 in London. Boxers managed to knock down each other, but the pressure of British fighter led to technical knockout.
