Anthony Joshua is aiming to become a a three-time heavyweight champion of the world this evening as he goes head to head with Oleksandr Usyk in Saudi Arabia.
In the last fight, the Ukrainian schooled AJ, beating him by unanimous decision over 12 rounds in London.
Joshua has since made wholesale changes to his team in the hope of avenging his loss, bringing in Robert Garcia and Angel Fernandez in the place of Rob McCkracken, who came under fire for his tactics in the last bout.
A win for Usyk would reaffirm his spot at the top of the ‘pound for pound’ rankings as well as putting him amongst the elite heavyweights in the sport, having only moved up from cruiserweight in 2019.
Due to the so-called ‘retirement’ of Fury, the Ring Magazine title will also be on the line, as well as the IBF, WBO and IBO heavyweight titles, which were previously held by Joshua before his defeat to Usyk.
