Oleksandr Usyk vs. Anthony Joshua 2 takes place on Saturday, August 20th at the King Abdullah Sport City Stadium in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia and will be live streamed on DAZN.
The unified heavyweight championship rematch will be an event for the ages to see if the beloved British boxing star Anthony Joshua can reclaim the belts he lost in an upset to Oleksandr Usyk last year.
When Joshua and Usyk first met, the fight was touted as a David vs. Goliath match, and Usyk the former undisputed cruiserweight champion was the underdog heading into the bout.
Joshua was expected to be too big and too strong for the undersized heavyweight challenger, only for the tables to turn and Usyk outboxing and even stunning the much bigger Joshua in the fight.
The questions will emerge if Joshua is able to adjust under new head trainer Robert Garcia of California or will Usyk just have the southpaw slick style that gives Joshua trouble.
