Celebrity News: In the last days, we have been able to see in the social networks to Joshua next to Mayweather so that the North American public is familiarized with the face of the British.
All indications are that there will finally be a rematch between heavyweight world champion Anthony Joshua and the best heavyweight of recent years, Wladimir Klitschko. Eddie Hearn, promoter of Joshua and great craftsman to catapult English boxing to the highest level worldwide, has confirmed that has a marked date in the calendar for the rematch. His intention is that the fight takes place on Novembe r 11 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, the same venue where they will play Mayweather vs. McGregor and ‘Canelo’ vs. Golovkin. A smaller space than Wembley – 90,000 people – where their first duel took place.
It had been speculated with the location of the combat. It was rumored that one could dispute Cardiff, Dubai and even Nigeria, but the choice of Las Vegas has not been random. Hearn wants to face Joshua with the WBC champion, the American Deontay ‘The Bronze Bomber’ Wilder. The best way to maximize this combat is to make known the English pugilist in American territory. The fight between Joshua and Klitschko last April 29 at the London stadium was televised in the US with a large audience and Hearn is aware that his pupil likes, and much, the Americans. From here we must continue to build that fame among this public and what better way than the hand of Mayweather.
In recent days we have been able to see Joshua on social networks with Mayweather (this sum more than 23 million followers on Instagram and Twitter). He has visited his gym to see the preparation for the fight with McGregor and they have also gone out to dinner together. Chance? It seems that the English champion wanted to see the venue where he could defend his WBA and IBF crowns and win over the 40-year-old pugilist. He is aware that Floyd is the great media star of the moment and that appearing together he could assure the followers he needs to succeed in the US. Mayweather also benefits by teaming up with one of the most beloved characters in the UK and knowing that that territory is key to the battle that Aug. 26 will wrestle against Conor McGregor. The support you receive will translate into more PPV sales.
It is shaping though it is not done yet. Anthony Joshua and Eddie Hearn have publicly stated their intention to revenge with Klitschko after his Wembley match has been considered one of the best heavyweight titles in recent years. Both boxers visited the canvas and Joshua managed to finish his opponent in the eleventh round. There he added his KO number 19 in 19 bouts.
