Anthony Joshua is attempting to reclaim the WBA, WBO, and IBF titles he lost by unanimous decision to Oleksandr Usyk last year; if he defeats the Ukrainian, Joshua will become a three-time world champion.
The rematch between Anthony Joshua and Oleksandr Usyk has been set for August 20 at the Jeddah Super Dome in Saudi Arabia.
After losing a unanimous decision to the Ukrainian in their first fight at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London in September, Joshua is looking to reclaim the WBA, WBO, and IBF heavyweight crowns.
Joshua has altered his training setup since that setback, bringing in American trainer Robert Garcia to join Angel Fernandez in his corner in an attempt to revenge his professional career's second defeat.
After avenging his first professional loss with a points victory over Andy Ruiz Jr in Diriyah in December 2019, the 32-year-old is back in Saudi Arabia for another rematch.
Usyk is regarded as one of the top pound-for-pound fighters in the sport, having won the undisputed world cruiser-weight title in 2018 before earning three heavyweight titles.
