Anthony Joshua vs Wladimir Klitschko. One Issue Remains.

The long awaited announcement is very close. Several sources (Who are credible and have rarely been wrong with the information provided) say the fight is close to done and it’s only waiting on Sanctioning bodies. The bout could be for both the WBA & WBO world titles. The WBO originally wanted to sanction Parker vs Ruiz Jr, however that organization is now considering a 4 man tournament.

It’s likely that the WBA sanction this for the full title.

The WBO annual convention is in Puerto Rico this week. Canelo and his team will be there. However the event will have a serious presence of lobbyists trying to get their heavyweights a shot at the vacant title. 

Furthermore with the US TV networks, we have heard it’s likely going to end up on Showtime, but that is yet to be confirmed.

Exciting times at Heavyweight.

NOTE: Since this has been published, several sources are reporting that Wlad vs Klitschko deal is about to collapse. We believe it's a simple negotiating tactic and this fight will get done. Both teams want it and are way to far down the track to not get it done.
