Oleksandr Usyk has revealed he would be open to the idea of fighting Anthony Joshua for a third time.
Usyk recently defeated Anthony Joshua in Saudi Arabia to retain his status as the unified heavyweight champion of the world.
With the Ukrainian having once again proven how much better a fighter he is than Joshua, there are no longer any scores to settle between the pair.
Still, Usyk does not appear to have ruled out the possibility of taking a bumper trilogy fight with the Englishman, despite the score standing at 2-0.
Usyk is quoted by The Sun revealing that, depending on Tyson Fury’s intentions, a third fight with Joshua could plausibly come to fruition.
“If Fury floats away, then maybe we will agree on a third fight with Joshua.”
Fury is notoriously unreliable and it’s currently anyone’s best guess if he’s actually retired or not. You can’t blame Usyk for keeping his options open.
There would be less appetite for a third fight with Joshua than there was for the rematch, of course, but it’d still be a huge, mega-money bout.
It’s not entirely clear if Joshua would be interested, but nevertheless, it is probably unlikely to happen anyway, with the undisputed fight on the cards…
