THE December 12 card at the O2, headlined by Anthony Joshua versus Dillian Whyte for the British heavyweight title, could yet be broadcast on pay-per-view.
“It’s undecided,” promoter Eddie Hearn told Boxing News. “There’s a good chance it could be pay per view but we have to look at the finished article.”
The choice then will depend on what is added to the bill. Kell Brook’s IBF welterweight title fight with Diego Chaves needs to be rescheduled. “There is a chance Brook-Chaves might be on. But I think he might be out in January. He’s got tendon and ligament damage in his ribs. They’re telling him they need to reassess it in two or three weeks,” Hearn continued. “So that could be on there.”
Tony Bellew will be on the O2 bill, though not against IBF cruiserweight champion Victor Ramirez, as will Luke Campbell and Kevin Mitchell. Their opponents are yet to be announced.
