Promoter Eddie Hearn told media:
“It’s going to be difficult because Usyk’s confidence will be sky-high, but when you get to the level of Anthony Joshua, as we saw after the Ruiz defeat, there’s no 10-round comeback fights and warm-ups.
“It’s straight back into the fire, and he will want to go straight back into that rematch. But, of course, he will be an underdog in the rematch this time after that tonight, but that’s what he does.”
He further added:
“It was a tough fight, a grueling fight,” said Hearn.
“He’s not entirely talking the way you would expect him to speak at the moment.”
