The Ukrainian’s victory over Derek Chisora makes him the number one contender for Joshua’s belts, meaning Usyk has the right to challenge AJ or demands he vacates his belt if he fights another opponent.

However, Usyk told SunSport quoted by Sports Bible:

“The four heavyweight belts might end up in the same hands of one person.

“It might be a once in a lifetime opportunity. We should all talk and communicate for that to happen because it is a really big event.”

“I still want to fight Anthony Joshua for the title.
