Usyk to face Joshua in Saudi Arabia on Aug 20 for heavyweight titles

Unified heavyweight world champion Oleksandr Usyk will face Briton Anthony Joshua in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia on Aug. 20 in a rematch of their London bout last year, boxing promoter Eddie Hearn’s Matchroom stable announced on Sunday.

Usyk beat Joshua in front of a sell-out crowd in September last year to claim the WBA, WBO, IBF and IBO belts but the 32-year-old will have a chance to win back his belts in a fight dubbed “Rage on the Red Sea”.
