LONDON — It seems like Anthony Joshua hasn’t had enough.

The rangy, British ex-heavyweight champ, who lost his WBA, WBO, IBF and IBO belts to the Valley’s Andy Ruiz Jr. in a world-shaking verdict delivered at Madison Square Garden on Saturday, will get a chance to reclaim his throne no later than November of this year — this per Joshua’s chief promoter, Matchroom Sport head Eddie Hearn, who tweeted the news on Tuesday.
