Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury confirmed the date for their historical fight. However, one day later being ordered Fury to face his WBO mandatory challenger. After Deontay Wilder won his arbitration case, a US judge ordered that Tyson Fury has to face him by September 15. That has opened the door for WBO mandatory Oleksandr Usyk to face Joshua.

“Eddie, I want money, more money,” said Oleksandr Usyk on Wednesday on Instagram.

“The arbitration went with the decision that Fury has to face Wilder for the third time, which gives us the opportunity to make our mandatory after two years of expectations of waiting,” said Usyk’s manager Alex Krassyuk to Boxing UK.

The possible fight between AJ and Usyk might take place by the end of summer, and probably in July, Fury would have to face Wilder.
