Unified heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua will meet former cruiserweight champion Oleksandr Usyk on September 25 at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
However, Joshua has been waiting for a long awaited clash with the WBC champion Tyson Fury. However, an arbitrator rule stopped the Joshua vs Fury fight which was supposed to take place in August this year. Now AJ is scheduled to fight WBO No. 1 contender Usyk.
The 2012 Olympic gold medalist Usyk is a highly decorated boxer, who turned pro fighter in 2013. Later he became the fourth male boxer in history who held the WBA, WBC, WBO and IBF titles simultaneously. Further, he won the undisputed cruiserweight championship in 2018. After that, Usyk moved to heavyweight and already beat Chazz Witherspoon and Derek Chisora. So, he is the worthy contender for the heavyweight title.
Nevertheless, Usyk’s title bout will be a hard fight for him as Anthony Joshua is also a well decorated boxer.
Joshua currently has a 24-1 record with 22 knockout wins. He is known as one of the best finishers in the boxing world and surely he is aiming to add another victory to his resume. A win against Usyk will give him the opportunity to hold all four heavyweight belts.
