Although we?ve heard nothing official when it comes to Wladimir Klitschko wanting to take the re-match option he had in his contract for the Anthony Joshua fight, Eddie Hearn is getting very enthusiastic about the date 11 November 2017.

The Matchroom promoter is also enthusiastic about the fabulous venue of Las Vegas being the stage for the re-match.

Talking to the media, Hearn has remarked,

?I?ve been in Vegas with AJ, officially applying for my Nevada boxing licence to promote there and that went well. I met with the MGM and met with the T-Mobile Arena.

?Vegas is the front-runner and November 11th is the date that is pencilled in.

?It will probably take a couple of weeks to get everything over the line, but I believe Klitschko will take this fight and believe Vegas will be the one.

?AJ has been over there for about 10 days and has enjoyed himself and got to know the area a little bit.

?With the amount of British fight fans that would travel there, it will be a momentous occasion and one we will savour for a long time, so fingers crossed it?s a party in Las Vegas on November 11.?

Already the hairs on the back of my neck are standing up, the sheer level of expectation of these two ring warriors going head-to-head again has gotten me all excited.

All, if it is officially announced, that remains to be done is tell the better half I?m going!
