Championship heavyweight boxing is once again in the limelight. Oleksandr Usyk is set to take on Anthony Joshua with three of the four major titles in the sport's biggest division on the line. It all goes down inside the Jeddah Superdome in Saudi Arabia on Saturday night with the main event airing live on DAZN (5:15 p.m. ET -- subscribe now).

Usyk unified all four world championships at cruiserweight in 2018 when he won the Cruiserweight World Boxing Super Series by defeating Murat Gassiev in the finals. He made his heavyweight debut in 2019, picking up relatively uninspiring wins over Chazz Witherspoon and Derek Chisora before again showcasing his elite pound-for-pound talent by completely outworking Joshua over 12 rounds.

Joshua is no stranger to righting the ship after suffering defeats. In June 2019, he suffered a knockout loss to Andy Ruiz in one of the biggest upsets in heavyweight history. Joshua dominated Ruiz in the rematch that December to regain his three world titles.
