Oleksandr Usyk vs. Anthony Joshua 2 set for August 20 in Saudi Arabia. Oleksandr Usyk will defend his WBA, IBF and WBO heavyweight titles in a highly anticipated rematch with former titleholder Anthony Joshua on Aug. 20 in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.

Oleksandr Usyk is expected to defend his WBA, IBF and WBO heavyweight titles in a highly anticipated rematch with former titleholder Anthony Joshua on August 20 in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. Usyk defeated Joshua via a unanimous decision last September to claim the belts.

Joshua, a former Olympic gold medalist from England, surrendered the titles after a 24-1 start to his career and wins over the likes of Wladimir Klitschko, Dillian Whyte and Alexander Povetkin.

His only losses are to Usyk and Andy Ruiz Jr. in June 2019 in one of the biggest upsets in boxing history. He has not fought since the defeat to Usyk.

Usyk, 19-0, is a former undisputed cruiserweight champion and fellow Olympic gold medalist from Ukraine. He moved up to heavyweight in 2019, defeating Chazz Witherspoon, Derek Chisora and Joshua.
