Eddie Hearn says that November 11 in Las Vegas is the date and location penciled in for the rematch between Anthony Joshua and Wladimir Klitschko.
Hearn revealed last month that Las Vegas was the preferred option, despite interest in Dubai, Nigeria and Cardiff, and it now looks all but certain that the second fight will go stateside.
Both Hearn and Joshua have been spending time in the Nevada city and the Matchroom boss reveals that he has met with representatives of MGM and the T-Mobile Arena as he looks to try and finalise the rematch.
Speaking to Sky Sports News Hearn said, “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.”
