Oleksandr Usyk vs Anthony Joshua Re-match, date, venue confirmed. the rematch between Anthony Joshua and Oleksandr Usyk has been scheduled for August 20. The world heavyweight fight will take place in Saudi Arabia at the Jeddah Super Dome.
Joshua will attempt to reclaim the WBA, IBF, and WBO titles he lost in September. Usyk won the first fight on points, with the judges scoring the Ukrainian 117-112, 116-112, and 115-113 in his favor in London.
A rematch clause was immediately activated, but Russia’s invasion of Ukraine in February cast doubt on when Usyk would return to the ring for the next time. Usyk, 35, returned to Ukraine to fight for his country, but was granted special permission to leave and begin preparations for this fight months later, with a date and venue finally confirmed.
