The rematch between Anthony Joshua and Oleksandr Usyk is now confirmed for August 20 at the Jeddah Super Dome in Saudi Arabia.
Joshua in the world heavyweight fight, will be attempting to wrestle back the WBA, IBF and WBO belts he lost in September.
Usyk won the first fight on points with the judges scoring 117-112, 116-112, and 115-113 in favour of the Ukrainian in London.
A rematch clause was immediately activated, but Russia’s invasion of Ukraine in February cast doubt over when Usyk would be next back in the ring.
Usyk, 35, returned to Ukraine to fight for his country but was given special dispensation to leave and start preparations for this bout months later with a date and venue now finally confirmed.
