Anthony Joshua will face Oleksandr Usyk this Saturday night in a huge heavyweight title clash at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
AJ was expected to meet Tyson Fury to unite the heavyweight titles this summer but the ‘Gypsy King’ was ordered to pull out and take on Deontay Wilder in a trilogy clash instead.
Joshua has had to find a new opponent and is now preparing to take on dangerous WBO mandatory challenger Usyk.
The Ukrainian is unbeaten in his 18 professional bouts to date and saw off Derek Chisora last October having moved from cruiserweight, where he dominated the division, up to heavyweight.
Usyk will pose a hugely tough test for Joshua who must win to keep his hopes of claiming all the heavyweight belts alive.

Joshua v Usyk: Date and time
This 12-round heavyweight title fight will take place at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium this weekend on Saturday, September 25.
Joshua was set to face Kubrat Pulev at Tottenham’s new ground last June but that fight had to be switched to the Wembley Arena in December due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Coverage of the action will begin from 7pm UK time, while promoter Eddie Hearn has confirmed that the main event ring walks will be earlier than normal and are set for 10pm.
The clash will be for Joshua’s WBA (Super), IBF, WBO, and IBO heavyweight titles.
