Promoter gets bids for Joshua vs Klitschko rematch in Abuja


Anthony Joshua has received two bids from Nigeria to stage his world heavyweight title rematch against Wladimir Klitschko.

The Sun reports that his promoter, Eddie Hearn, has been sifting through mega-money offers to stage the fight in Nigeria’s capital, Abuja.
A decision is expected to be made early next week.
“There has been big interest from Nigeria, we have had two approaches to stage it in Abuja and we are going through the contracts.

“Some of the offers we have received have been huge, it’s a lot more money to box outside of the UK.
“China has been on. Dubai has been on. They are all keen to get him on in those places.
“So it’s just a case really of looking at all the offers and getting to the root of the ones that are real and not so real, the ones with the money that is secure and those that are not so secure and then making a decision,” Hearn said.
Meanwhile, The Mirror has claimed Klitschko told Joshua, he will only agree to a rematch if it is abroad.
