This Saturday, September 25, Anthony Joshua is set to return to the ring for his first fight of 2021 against undefeated mandatory challenger Oleksandr Usyk, and it will air live on Sky Box Office in the UK, and DAZN in the US.

The event will take place at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London, England and will see Joshua defend his WBA, IBF and WBO heavyweight titles against the Ukrainian former undisputed cruiserweight champion.

Joshua last fought in December 2020 against Kubrat Pulev at Wembley Arena, where he successfully defended his titles. Usyk's last fight was at the same arena where he battled against Derek Chisora in October of last year.

The winner of the bout may have ramifications of going on to face the winner of Tyson Fury vs Deontay Wilder in an undisputed heavyweight title fight.
