Oleksandr Usyk and Anthony Joshua square off for a second time on August 20 in an all-important rematch at the Jeddah Super Dome in Saudi Arabia.

Joshua is out for revenge after losing his WBA, WBO and IBF heavyweight belts to the Ukrainian mastermind last September at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.   

The winner will look to face WBC champion Tyson Fury next in an historic undisputed bout, despite the Gypsy King announcing his retirement after knocking out Dillian Whyte earlier this year.

Joshua was heavily criticised after opting against using his evident physical advantages last time out, instead looking to outbox the boxer in a move that proved disastrous. 

The 32-year-old has since left long-term coach Rob McCracken and teamed up with Robert Garcia, however, insisting he now plans to hunt for the knockout. 

Usyk, undoubtedly one of the pound-for-pound stars in the sport, has been given a full camp after taking a step away from boxing to help defend his country amid the ongoing Russian invasion, with the fight pushed back from May and then July. 

Joshua will be hoping he can avenge the second defeat of his career, having done so against Andy Ruiz Jr, also in Saudi Arabia, back in 2019.

When is Oleksandr Usyk vs Anthony Joshua?

The clash between Usyk and Joshua is scheduled to take place on Saturday, August 20 at the Jeddah Super Dome in Saudi Arabia.

The pair are expected to walk to the ring at around 9pm UK time, though that will of course depend on results beforehand, with an abundance of action also taking place on the undercard. 

Also on the card are Filip Hrgovic and Zhilei Zhang, who square off in an intriguing heavyweight encounter. 

Britain's Callum Smith is also in action against Mathieu Bauderlique in a WBC light-heavyweight final eliminator, while Badou Jack will also take on Richard Rivera.
