Boxing promoter, Frank Warren, has warned Anthony Joshua not to fight Oleksander Usyk again.
Usyk, on Saturday night, dethroned Joshua as the IBF, WBO and IBO world heavyweight champion.
Warren believes Joshua is “damaged goods” after his defeat, but believes a fight with Tyson Fury is still possible.
Joshua has stated he will trigger his contractual right to a rematch with Usyk, most likely in February or March in the UK.
But Warren told Sportsmail: “He shouldn’t go anywhere near Usyk – he will never beat him.
“In terms of fighting Tyson Fury, it can happen. Joshua losing has taken away the belts and he is damaged goods now. But people would still buy into that fight. It can happen and it can happen in the UK.
“But he shouldn’t have a rematch with Usyk. I wouldn’t even think about it if I was him.”
