The fight between Tyson Fury (34-0-1, 24 KOs) and Oleksandr Usyk (21-0, 14 KOs) will open up the opportunity for other boxers to compete for titles. This will happen immediately after the fight on February 17, as the Ukrainian and the Briton will be forced to hold a rematch, which is stipulated in the contract, and therefore will refuse to defend their belts.

This opinion was expressed by the British Anthony Joshua (27-3, 23 KOs), The Sun writes. According to him, he intends to become the world heavyweight champion again. At the same time, the Watford native noted that he is more interested in a title fight than a bout against some top fighter without a belt.

"If I have to choose between fighting for the world heavyweight title and fighting a famous opponent, I'll choose the former because it's a cherry on top of a cake. This is the most prestigious title you can win. I will try to come to the Fury-Usyk fight. Usually, I don't go to other people's fights, but this is a significant fight. As soon as it's over, the division will reopen and we can start going towards becoming champions," Joshua said.
