Usyk confirms AJ rematch plans

Oleksandr Usyk has confirmed he is preparing for a rematch with Anthony Joshua in a post on his Instagram page.

The Ukrainian star returned to his home nation to help defend against the Russian invasion, but Usyk is now set to continue his boxing career.

Sky Sports reported on Thursday that the 35-year-old's team had resumed preparations for another showdown with Joshua, who activated a rematch clause after losing his belts in a unanimous decision loss at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium last September.

    Attempts to finalise terms were put on hold, with Usyk heading back to Ukraine to help his compatriots, but the champion released a video on his social media account on Friday confirming his intention to return to the ring to face Britain's Joshua.

    "I've decided to start preparing for a rematch with Anthony Joshua," he said.
