Oleksandr Usyk and Anthony Joshua 2: A rematch will take place in Saudi Arabia, August

Finally, the rematch between Anthony Joshua & Oleksandr Usyk has been set. They will be meeting in Jeddah (Saudi Arabia) on August 20th with Usyk's unification heavyweight titles at stake.

Usyk, the undisputed champion at cruiserweight, was promoted to heavyweight in October 2019. He beat Chazz Witherspoon, Derek Chisora, and then faced Joshua in September. Although Usyk was an underdog in the fight, Usyk outboxed Joshua 12 times to win the fight by scores 117-112, 112-112 and 115-113.

Joshua, a former Olympic gold medalist, ripped through the professional ranks. He won two world titles and knocked out his first 20 opponents. Joshua defeated Joseph Parker in his 21st fight to win the WBO title. He now holds three of four world heavyweight titles.

After that, there was a shock knockout by Andy Ruiz Jr. Joshua would defeat Ruiz Jr. in the rematch to regain the titles. Coincidentally, this rematch also took places in Saudi Arabia.

The WBC champion could be awarded to the winner of the match. Tyson Fury currently holds the title. Fury said that his most recent victory, a knockout over Dillian Whyte was his last fight as a professional fighter. However, it is unclear what Fury would do with his WBC title if he decides to retire.
