Anthony Joshua is considered one of the two most important heavyweights in the world, along with his British partner Tyson Fury. As the world eagerly awaits them to meet, Joshua must first outmatch another top-tier contender.
On Saturday, Joshua (24-1, 22 KOs) will face Oleksandr Usyk (18-0, 13 KOs) at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London, England. The fight will air 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 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 heavyweight appearance against his toughest opponent yet.
Usyk is currently the fourth highest-rated heavyweight behind Fury, Joshua and Deontay Wilder, and could easily play another top-tier fight with a win on Saturday.
