Anthony Joshua’s heavyweight rematch with Oleksandr Usyk is set to hold at the Jeddah Super Dome in Saudi Arabia, on August 20.
Joshua is aiming to reclaim the WBA, WBO and IBF heavyweight titles after an unanimous decision loss to the Ukrainian in their first fight at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, London, in September 2021.
Since the defeat, the British professional boxer has improved his training set up, bringing in American trainer, Robert Garcia, to join Angel Fernandez in his corner in a bid to avenge the second defeat of his professional career.
The 32-year-old is returning to Saudi Arabia for another rematch, having avenged his first pro loss with a points win over Andy Ruiz Jr. in December 2019.
Usyk is recognised as one of the sport’s pound-for-pound best fighters, becoming undisputed cruiserweight world champion in 2018, before claiming three heavyweight belts.
The 35-year-old, who joined Joshua as an Olympic gold medallist at London 2012, is yet to suffer a defeat in 19 professional bouts.
