WBO gives Anthony Joshua 48 hours to ‘show cause’ before ordering Oleksandr Usyk title shot


As a latest ruling by an arbitration choose — ordering a direct third struggle between Deontay Wilder vs Tyson Fury — continues to make shock waves all through the game, the subsequent domino to fall has been the WBO giving Anthony Joshua a 48 hour window to ‘present trigger’ as to why they shouldn’t instantly order Joshua enter negotiations with Oleksandr Usyk relating to his obligatory title protection.

The WBO had beforehand dominated Usyk to face Joe Joyce for an interim title in an effort to ‘maintain the division lively’ but when Joshua gained’t be unifying towards Tyson Fury then they see no motive as to why Usyk ought to simply go straight previous go to his heavyweight world title shot.

In all actuality, this makes good sense as a result of if Joshua isn’t going through Fury, he would possibly as nicely go forward and provides Usyk his shot, nevertheless it additionally doesn’t give Joshua all that a lot time to determine how Tyson Fury plans to go ahead.

Latest stories recommend Joshua’s staff continues to be holding out at the least some hope that an undisputed heavyweight title unification may come collectively, however with Arum overtly stating that he doesn’t plan to pay Wilder step apart cash then it’s exhausting to see how this comes off at this level.
