Anthony Joshua is considered one of the two top heavyweights in the world, along with fellow Brit Tyson Fury. While the world is eagerly waiting for them to square off, Joshua first needs to make it past another top-tier contender.
On Saturday, Joshua (24-1, 22 KOs) will face Oleksandr Usyk (18-0, 13 KOs) at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London, England. The fight will be broadcast on Sky Sports Box Office.
Joshua is looking to defend his WBA (Super), IBF, WBO and IBO heavyweight titles, which he lost to Andy Ruiz Jr. in June of 2019 and regained in December of that year. Usyk, who was previously the WBA (super), WBC, IBF, WBO and The Ring cruiserweight champion, will be making his third appearance at heavyweight against his toughest opponent yet.
Usyk is currently the fourth-highest rated heavyweight behind Fury, Joshua and Deontay Wilder, and could easily play himself into another top-tier fight with a victory on Saturday.
