Heavyweight champ Oleksandr Usyk will defend his title in a rematch against Anthony Joshua on August 20 — here’s how to livestream the fight
Undefeated Ukrainian heavyweight champion Oleksandr Usyk (19-0, 13 KOs) will defend his titles against Anthony Joshua (24-2, 22 KOs) in an August 20 rematch in Saudi Arabia. DAZN will stream the fight, with coverage starting at noon ET and the main event expected to begin at 5:30 p.m. ET.
Usyk defeated Joshua by unanimous decision to claim the WBA, WBO, and IBF titles in September 2021, and Joshua invoked the rematch clause in their fight contract for a chance to win back the belts. This is the second time since 2019 that Joshua is looking to reclaim his lost belts; the British born fighter suffered a surprising TKO loss to Andy Ruiz Jr. in June 2019 before returning to defeat Ruiz six months later.
Usyk spent time in a battalion earlier this year to support Ukraine’s defense against the ongoing Russian invasion, but left the country to begin training for his rematch with Joshua. He was previously the undisputed cruiserweight champion of the world, before defeating Joshua in his third heavyweight fight
Usyk (19-0, 13 KO) took the WBA, IBF, and WBO heavyweight titles from Joshua (24-2, 22 KO) 11 months ago in London, and now they meet again. Neither man has fought since the first bout.
