Date and venue of the rematch against Joshua remain to be seen

WBA, IBF, WBO, IBO heavyweight champion Oleksandr Usyk (19-0, 13 KOs) will have a long-awaited rematch against British boxer Anthony Joshua (24-2, 22 KOs) on August 20 in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.

The fight is set to be staged at Jeddah Super Dome, which can accommodate up to 40,000 spectators.

This fight will take place almost a year after the first fight, which Oleksandr confidently won in London.

The rematch will be called “Rage on the Red Sea” and it will be even more serious than the first fight in terms of heat, tension and drama.

“This fight is for our Ukraine and all Ukrainians. I have a goal, with the help of the Lord I will complete my mission,” said Oleksandr Usyk.
