Anthony Joshua Vs Oleksandr Usyk Date, Odds, Tickets And Prediction

Anthony Joshua will defend his IBF, WBA and IBO heavyweight titles against Oleksandr Usyk in the heart of London with 60,000 fans in attendance later this year.

The eagerly anticipated bout will be the first boxing match in a stadium in the UK since the COVID-19 pandemic broke out in March 2020 - and there promises to be fireworks.

In a match-up of two former Olympic gold medalists from London 2012, Joshua will go toe-to-toe in the ring with the Ukrainian - the WBO mandatory challenger - in just two months time.

If this trailer doesn't give you goosebumps, then we don't know what will.

Joshua was expected to meet Tyson Fury to unite the heavyweight titles this summer, but the 'Gypsy King' was ordered by a court to take on 'Bronze Bomber' Deontay Wilder in their trilogy clash instead.

AJ will now face Usyk, though, who is unbeaten in his 18 professional bouts to date - posing a threat to Joshua's stellar legacy.
