Matchroom boss built Wembley showdown and is now exploring rematch venues around the world
ANTHONY JOSHUA’S rematch with Wladimir Klitschko appears set for Las Vegas after promoter Eddie Hearn toured the T-Mobile arena.
The Matchroom boss was the mastermind behind AJ’s glorious Wembley coronation in April in front of 90,000 fans and is in talks with the K2 team about a sequel.
The England football stadium is in the running for a second shot at hosting the showdown but Cardiff’s Principality Stadium, Sin City, Dubai and Nigeria all want to host the colossal battle.
All eyes will be on the T-Mobile arena on August 26 when Conor McGregor vs Floyd Mayweather takes place there.
And Hearn has taken a trip to the gambling mecca to run his eye over the 20,000 seater and shared a video of his recce.
The first fight – where AJ added the WBA title to his IBF crown – was perfectly timed to be show on American TV.
That is where the mega-money is and a fight over there – including all the media duties – would help the Watford star break into the global big time.
Speaking about his next move in June, Joshua said: “The last fight put the expectations on a pedestal but it was entertainment.

“We can’t fight too many fights like that but regarding who I’m fighting, I’ve got two options.
“One is a rematch with Klitschko, and we’re waiting to see, and we’re trying to dangle a few carrots to make him bite and spark his interest again.
“The man has achieved great things throughout his career so it takes a lot for him to get motivated and interested again.
