Boxing: The Date And Location Of The Rematch Between Anthony Joshua And Oleksandr Usyk Have Been Confirmed



The rematch between Anthony Joshua and Oleksandr Usyk has been set for August 20.

The world heavyweight fight will take held in Saudi Arabia’s Jeddah Super Dome.

Joshua will try to reclaim the WBA, IBF, and WBO titles that he lost in September.

In London, Usyk won the first fight on points, with judges scoring him 117-112, 116-112, and 115-113 in his favor.

A rematch clause was instantly triggered, but Russia’s invasion of Ukraine in February threw uncertainty on Usyk’s future appearance in the ring.

Usyk, 35, returned to Ukraine to fight for his country, but he was granted special permission to leave and begin preparations for this fight months later, with a date and location now set.
