What time is Oleksandr Usyk vs. Anthony Joshua 2 today? PPV schedule, main card start time for 2022 boxing fight


On August 20 in Saudi Arabia, Oleksandr Usyk and Anthony Joshua will do battle once again for heavyweight supremacy. Usyk’s WBA (Super), IBF, WBO, and IBO heavyweight titles are on the line. The Ring title is also on the line following Tyson Fury’s retirement.  

Joshua beat Charles Martin for the IBF heavyweight title, Wladimir Klitschko for the WBA and IBO heavyweight titles, and Joseph Parker for the WBO heavyweight title. In 2019, Andy Ruiz Jr. beat Joshua for all the gold in one of the biggest upsets in boxing history. Joshua beat Ruiz in a rematch six months later in Saudi Arabia. He reflected on that loss to Ruiz not long ago, and discussed what motivates him to keep on fighting. 

“I’m focused on the goal, god willing, I’ll perform, and I’ll become three-time Heavyweight Champion of the World,” Joshua stated. “With Andy Ruiz I think a lot of people can see before the fight things weren’t 100%. You’ve got to be strong, thick skinned; we take our loss like a man. When I win, I keep it moving and I thank everybody. When you lose, you have to stay humble as well in defeat. We kept it moving and I knew I could come back again and do what I have to do.”

Usyk made his pro debut in 2013. From 2017-2018 he competed in the World Boxing Super Series cruiserweight tournament. He won the whole thing, becoming undisputed cruiserweight champion in the process. In 2019 he moved up to heavyweight. After beating Chazz Witherspoon and Derek Chisora, he overcame Joshua via unanimous decision last September to become the WBA, IBF, WBO, and IBO heavyweight champion.
