Eddie Hearn has admitted that he would ‘love’ to see Anthony Joshua’s rematch against Oleksandr Usyk take place at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Joshua put his IBF, WBA, WBO and IBO World Titles on the line against Usyk at Tottenham’s home ground on September 25 but it was the Ukrainian who came up trumps on the night.
AJ will now be looking for a chance to win his unified titles back and the British boxer’s promoter, Hearn, has now said that the rematch could be held in the same venue at the end of May or June.
Hearn revealed that he has spoken to Daniel Levy about the possibility of bringing the fight back to N17 but added that it could also take place in the Middle East.
He told DAZN Boxing Show (as relayed by The Mirror): “I’ve just come back from the Middle East. We’ve had numerous meetings with different countries in the Middle East to stage that fight.
“I had a call with Daniel Levy from Tottenham which was where the first fight was at, they really want to bring the rematch back there, I love the idea of that as well.
“Egis Klymas and Oleksandr Usyk are actually in the UK this week so we’re going to sit down with them and just talk through everything. We’re getting to a stage now where we’re going to start thinking about securing a date which will be the end of May or June.”
In addition, two NFL matches are also set to be held at Tottenham’s 62,850-capacity home ground this summer for the first time since 2019, with the stadium not being able to host NFL games over the last two years due to Covid-19 restrictions (Daily Mail).

Now that normalcy seems to be returning, I am not surprised that Daniel Levy is keen to host as many events as possible at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, in order to help realise the venue’s earning potential. The Spurs chairman will likely want to make up for the losses of the last two years.
