Former Finchley ABC heavyweight stopped Ukrainian in 11th round at Wembley Stadium in April

Former Finchley ABC heavyweight Anthony Joshua’s possible rematch with Wladimir Klitschko is likely to place some time in November should it go ahead, says Matchroom promoter Eddie Hearn.

The second clash between the two titans will only happen if the Ukrainian remains keen on a second fight.

As yet, Klitschko is yet to inform the public of what he has in mind and if he is going to continuing boxing or retire from the sport.

“If Klitschko does want another fight, I have had a number of offers from other venues, meaning that there is a lot of big money for the fight out there if he wants it,” said Hearn.

After April’s victory, Joshua now holds both the WBA and IBF world heavyweight titles.

The 27-year-old stopped Klitschko in the 11th round in front of 90,000 people at Wembley Stadium and it is expected there will be a similar number in attendance for the rematch.
