2 Months ago we informed our readers Haymon would have an option over AJ, if AJ defeated Charles Martin. We were ridiculed by many, but we have always remained firm with our call. The recent fight announcement between Joshua & Breazeale proves we probably are right.
Joshua took the title off one Heavyweight from Haymon's stable in Charles Martin. And now he will defend the title against another undefeated Heavyweight from Haymon's stable in Breazeale. See what is happening here?
Haymon always covers his bases. It would be silly to think that a master tactician like Al Haymon would not enforce an option or two over Anthony Joshua. Hearn probably had his hand forced and this was never told to the media.
Joshua vs Breazeale isn’t a bad fight. The American is undefeated, although he’s very lucky to have escaped the Mansour fight with a win. However the big question is, does Haymon have a 2 fight option over AJ? That would mean Joshua vs Fury or Haye wouldn’t be next & it would probably be AJ vs another Haymon stable fighter.
