Meanwhile, British professional boxer, Anthony Joshua and his Ukrainian title rival, Oleksandr Usyk may have another face-off in early 2022, says promoter Eddie Hearn.
According to Hearn, the two fighters may likely have a rematch between the end of March or early April next year.
Naija News understands that AJ and Usyk had an encounter at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium two months ago and Usyk unanimously claimed the WBA, WBO and IBF belts from his opponent.
AJ was said to be pained by the loss as it denied him a chance of facing Tyson Fury for a shot at becoming the heavyweight champion.
Hearn has, however, revealed that talk is ongoing to schedule a rematch between the Brit and Ukrainian.
