Star boxer Anthony Joshua's promoter, Eddie Hearn, evaluated the first bout between Usyk and Fury and provided his forecast for the rematch.

According to Hearn for Boxing247, the first fight was excellent, and it's no surprise that a rematch will take place. Additionally, the promoter believes that Usyk will win in the rematch.

"Perhaps Usyk thinks he can beat Fury in the rematch, and I believe the Ukrainian is the favorite in the second bout. The rematch will happen because the first fight was terrific. In my opinion, the first fight was very close, but Usyk deservedly won," said Hearn.

He also added that he would have liked Tyson to have the next fight with Joshua, but the rematch with Usyk will definitely take place.

It is worth recalling that the promoter of former world heavyweight champion Tyson Fury, Bob Arum, stated that the Gypsy King has officially activated the clause stipulated in the contract for a rematch with Oleksandr Usyk.

It is remarkable that the first fight between Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk took place last weekend in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Then the Ukrainian won by a split decision and became the undisputed world heavyweight champion.
