Boxing Promoter Picks Las Vegas For Anthony Joshua Rematch With Wladimir Klitschko

According to promoter Eddie Hearn, Anthony Joshua's proposed rematch with Wladimir Klitschko has a likely venue of the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. A second world heavyweight title fight between Joshua and Klitschko is set to take place in November, and Hearn flew out to Nevada this week to hold meetings with MGM bosses about staging the bout in their 20,000 seated facility.

Hearn revealed last month that Las Vegas was the preferred option, despite interest in Dubai, Nigeria and Cardiff, and was impressed with the state-of-the-art venue, which only opened in April last year.

He said “We met with Richard Sturm and the team at MGM in Las Vegas yesterday and had a full tour of the T-Mobile Arena which is very impressive, there is a huge appetite from both sides to hold the rematch there and we will be talking further over the next week or so to see if that can become a reality.”
