ANTHONY JOSHUA is preparing to begin a training camp on August 22 in the expectation Wladimir Klitschko will sign for their proposed November 11 rematch in Las Vegas.

The 27-year-old’s preference is for a return after their date at Wembley on April 29 was widely spoken of as the most exciting heavyweight fight since its last glamour era of the 1990s.

Press Association Sport understands Joshua’s promoters Matchroom awaits only Klitschko’s decision before confirming the fight at Vegas’ T-Mobile Arena, and the IBF and WBA champion expects a resolution by the end of August.
