OLEKSANDR USYK is expected to leave Ukraine and start training for a blockbuster rematch with Anthony Joshua.
Usyk, who joined the territorial defence after Russia invaded, was given permission by the nation’s Sports Minister to leave the country despite the ongoing war – although under the current law he was free to leave at any time because of his young children.
But a source told SunSport late last night: “It is true. Usyk is moving to his training camp in Europe.”
That would appear to give the green light for a mega-fight with AJ sometime in June.
Earlier this week, promoter Eddie Hearn predicted two-weight world champ Usyk would be ready to face the man he dethroned.
