Hearn, Joshua’s promoter, says he is working to set a date for Joshua to fight Klitschko on November 11, in Las Vegas. While Klitschko has yet to trigger the rematch clause in his contract, Hearn believes he wants the chance for a final fight in Las Vegas.
I’ve been in Vegas with AJ, officially applying for my Nevada boxing licence to promote there and that went well. I met with the MGM and met with the T-Mobile Arena. Vegas is the front-runner and November 11 is the date that is penciled in. It will probably take a couple of weeks to get everything over the line, but I believe Klitschko will take this fight and believe Vegas will be the one. AJ has been over there for about 10 days and has enjoyed himself and got to know the area a little bit. With the amount of British fight fans that would travel there, it will be a momentous occasion and one that we will savour for a long time, so fingers crossed it’s a party in Las Vegas on November 11.
