Eddie Hearn has suggested Anthony Joshua could return to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium for his rematch with Oleksandr Usyk.

The promoter also backed the idea of the bout taking place in April of this year, mooting Wembley as a potential alternative.

"I think April is realistic for the fight. The preferred venue will be the UK, in which case we would have to do the fight outside, and we’re not really interested in doing that in March.

"We’ve had two or three offers from different countries to stage Joshua v Usyk but for me after the success of the Spurs fight - other than the result - I would love to do that fight back in the UK, possibly at Spurs again or at Wembley.

"I feel like it’s a must-win for AJ. If we have the opportunity to stage the fight in the UK we should do it, and if he can win that fight on home soil it would be pretty special."
