CEO of the promotion company K2 Promotions Ukraine Alexander Krasyuk said Oleksandr Usyk next fight will hold in March or April 2020.

“The mustache needs to return to the ring in March or April. If the opponent is not Joshua, then the British should vacate the WBO title. Then the Barbel will fight for the vacant belt against a boxer of the highest positions in the ranking of the organization,” said Krasyuk.
It is likely that Joshua will refuse protection of the title. After all, he must carry out one more fight against the Kurbat Pulev under the protection of the IBF belt. Fight against Pulev will have until may 31, 2020, while the title defense against Joshua Mustache needs to take place before June 4, 2020.
If Joshua refuse a mandatory title defense, likely rival Cirrus for the WBO belt should be Joseph Parker. However, holding a fight against the Brit would be problems, because his promoters put very strict conditions on this fight.
