This time next week, we?ll be just hours away from the epic world title heavyweight clash between Anthony Joshua and Wladimir Klitschko.

It promises to be an epic encounter but, if Anthony Joshua gets his way, it could be the first of many huge fights.

Talking to the media, ahead of the huge show at Wembley Stadium, on April 29th, Eddie Hearn has remarked about Joshua,

‘Everything is just on the line on April 29.

‘AJ talks about having 10 years left in boxing, so part of me doesn’t want to rush, but we’re rushing into the Klitschko fight. Why not keep going?

‘Deontay Wilder will be ringside – that’s a natural fight. Joseph Parker is another fight as well. It’s all about winning, but he certainly wants to be in the biggest fights possible over the next 10 years.’

These certainly are exciting times for Joshua but as is always the case in heavyweight boxing, one punch can alter the scenario spectacularly.

Wladimir is no mug, the experience he?s gained in his career makes him the most dangerous opponent Joshua has faced in his career, the Ukrainian, many believe, could beat Joshua.

If that were to be the case, the question remains as to whether there would be a re-match, something Hearn was very coy about when he commented,

‘Nothing is guaranteed in boxing.

‘If there is no value in the rematch, then you won’t see it again. If it’s a great fight, certainly we can’t rule out doing it again.’

So, are we to take it that there will only be a re-match if Joshua loses?

Your thoughts on the above subject matter would be most appreciated in our comments facility.
