Joshua vows to avenge his defeat to Ruiz Jr

Anthony Joshua was “excited” by the challenge of Oleksandr Usyk’s arrival at heavyweight, according to promoter Eddie Hearn.

Joshua was the long-term target for Usyk who wants to add the world heavyweight championship to his cruiserweight honours – he debuts in the top division against Chazz Witherspoon on Sunday morning at 2am, live on Sky Sports Action.

Joshua must first regain the belts that he lost to Andy Ruiz Jr in a rematch on December 7, live on Sky Sports Box Office, but would then find Usyk as the mandatory challenger to the WBO title.
