The highly anticipated rematch between Oleksandr Usyk and Anthony Joshua has finally been confirmed.

The two boxing stars will go at it on August 20 in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia with the WBA, IBF and WBO heavyweight world titles on the line.

Joshua commented: “What a roller coaster journey, fighting for the Heavyweight Championship of the World for the 12th consecutive time. I won the belt, unified the division won another belt, lost the belts, became two-time Unified Heavyweight Champion and now have my date with history set to become three-time Unified Heavyweight Champion of the World. What an opportunity. 

“Fighting championship level back to back has had its pros and cons, but I decide every day to get stronger, to learn from my experiences and grow. A happy fighter is a dangerous fighter and I am the happiest and most motivated I have been. 

Usyk who bested Joshua at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium last September said: “I have a goal, with the help of the Lord I will complete my mission!”
