Usyk defeats Anthony Joshua
A rematch fight between Nigerian-born Anthony Joshua and Oleksandr Usyk has been confirmed for August 20.
The fight will take place in Saudi Arabia, BBC Sport reported on Sunday.
Last September, Usyk defeated Joshua, a two-time world champion, claiming the WBA (Super), IBF and WBO heavyweight titles.
The 35-year-old Ukrainian handed Joshua a second defeat in his boxing career.
Joshua, 31, will be looking forward to revenge in Saudi Arabia against Usyk.
In 2019, Anthony Joshua bounced back from a defeat, reclaiming his title from Andy Ruiz Jr, who gave him his first defeat in boxing.
