British boxer Anthony Joshua will fight Oleksandr Usyk in London on September 25 to defend the WBA, WBO, IBF heavyweight titles.
“The fight date has been determined and we are ready. September 25, Tottenham Stadium. I will fight with all my strength to defend the championship belts. We are two athletes who have won Olympic gold, both Fight in your own way to reach the top and never shirk the challenges,” Joshua announced on Twitter on July 20 with a photo of the fight with Usyk.
More than 60,000 tickets to the Tottenham stadium to watch this match have been sold out.
In March, Joshua and Tyson Fury signed a contract to unite all four of the most prestigious heavyweight titles, including the WBA, IBF, WBO and WBC heavyweight titles. But the match was delayed as Fury had to complete his third fight with Deontay Wilder.
The WBO, therefore, asked Joshua to fight their number one contender, Oleksandr Usyk. The Ukrainian boxer won all 18 professional fights, including 13 knockouts. Usyk used to be the absolute champion of welterweight, before moving to heavyweight in 2019, where he won Chazz Witherspoon and Dereck Chisora respectively.
The fight against Usyk will be Joshua’s next WBA, WBO and IBF triple title defense, since the knockout victory of Kubrat Pulev late last year. The match at Tottenham Stadium is also a confrontation between two boxers who have won Olympic gold medals. At the 2012 London Olympics, Joshua won the super heavyweight gold medal, while Usyk was the heavyweight champion.
