WBA, IBF, WBO and IBO heavyweight holder Oleksandr Usyk’s team have resumed plans for a rematch with Anthony Joshua which is set to be scheduled this summer.


The Ukrainian star returned to his home nation to help defend against the Russian invasion, but Usyk is now expected to continue his career later this year.


Joshua has activated a clause for a rematch with Usyk after losing his titles in a unanimous decision loss at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium last September, but attempts to finalize terms were put on hold, with Usyk heading back to Ukraine to help his compatriots.


Otto Wallin, Luis Ortiz and Britain’s Joe Joyce were on a shortlist of alternative opponents for Joshua, but Usyk is set to finalize terms for their second fight before finding a suitable location for his training camp.
