IT may come as a surprise but apparently Anthony Joshua wouldn’t mind having his WBA, IBF and WBO world heavyweight title rematch against Andy Ruiz Jnr back at the scene of the crime – Madison Square Garden, New York.

Most expected Joshua and his promoter, Eddie Hearn, to try and host the second fight between the pair, tentatively scheduled for either November or December, in the United Kingdom. It was thought they would want home advantage, as well as every other possible advantage, in the quest to regain what Joshua surrendered on June 1 in New York.

This, however, might not be the case. In fact, according to Hearn, Joshua quite likes the idea of settling the score in the very venue that hosted his trauma at the start of the month.
