THE richly anticipated Anthony Joshua vs Wladimir Klitschko rematch looks set to ahead to America with promoter Eddie Hearn eyeing a date and a venue for the contest.

If Klitschko accepts the rematch, the Joshua fight will take place at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on November 11. “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 pencilled in,” Hearn told Sky Sports News.

He has recently been to Las Vegas to visit the site and revealed he is getting a licence to promote events in Nevada. “I’ve been in Vegas with AJ, officially applying for my Nevada boxing license to promote there and that went well,” he added.
