Saudi Arabia 'under discussion' for Usyk-Joshua rematch

Saudi Arabia is one of the locations 'under discussion' for Oleksandr Usyk's rematch with Anthony Joshua.

Unified world champion Usyk has confirmed he will start preparations for a second fight against Joshua, with the Ukrainian's promoter Alexander Krassyuk targeting a date in June.

Joshua could now be heading back to Saudi Arabia after regaining his WBA, IBF and WBO heavyweight belts in a rematch with Andy Ruiz Jr in Diriyah in December 2019.

"This location is under discussion at the moment," Krassyuk told Sky Sports.

"Late June is also the timing we are considering now.

"Many things will depend on how fast we manage to ink the papers.

"The good thing is that Usyk is already in Europe to start his preparation."
