Anthony Joshua looking for new ‘opponent’ after Wladimir Klitschko suffered ‘minor’ injury
The December 10 super fight, which was supposed to be very exciting, has been finally called off after Wladimir Klitschko, a former heavyweight champion, suffered a minor injury.
His opponent, Anthony Joshua, is now searching for another opponent to have a fight with, on December 10.
It has been reported that the 27-year-old boxer, Joshua, was all set to break the ring on December 10 after his last match with Tyson Fury was called off permanently but everything went wrong this time as well and the fight was canceled.
Initially, it was said that Klitschko would fight next in Germany for WBA title, which is vacant for awhile. But this expectation has also been ruled out.
Meanwhile, another two fighters, Kubrat Pulev and Joseph Parker, were believed as an option, but unfortunately, nothing happened.
In a talk with Sky Sports, Joshua’s promoter Eddie Hearn said that his team is looking for a new opponent who could stand before Joshua on December 10 at Manchester Arena.
He added, “I was informed about the injury of Klitschko and it wouldn’t be justifiable if we put a fight on such grounds”.
“An official announcement will be made regarding the match with Klitschko and we believe that the time will soon come”, he added at the last.
The heat for the game has already reached on top and fans are expecting something very exciting.
Only six weeks are left for the hit and it will really be interesting to know who will fight with Joshua at Manchester Arena.
