Anthony Joshua vs Oleksandr Usyk
Fights as monumental as this weekend’s are few and far between, and with so many narratives circling this bout, the stakes could not be higher.
The Ukrainian, who prevailed in the first meeting back in September of last year, enters this one as the firm favourite having put on a boxing masterclass, despite being perceived as the slower, less technically astute of the pair.
Meanwhile, Joshua has a mountain of pressure on his shoulders heading into this one. Not only could he be facing the prospect of a potential third loss in five fights, but his credibility as a serious heavyweight champion contender may also be at stake.
He has shown a tendency to bounce back over his 26 fights however, most notably regaining all four of his titles conceded to Andy Ruiz in 2019 in an emphatic rematch.
We simply can not wait for this one given the implications for both fighters, and with Tyson Fury giving up vacancy on his coveted Ring Magazine belt, the stakes just got that little bit higher.
Where is Joshua’s Next Fight?
The location for this long-awaited rematch will be Jeddah in Saudi Arabia, where Joshua beat Andy Ruiz in their 2019 rematch.
