ANTHONY JOSHUA will be looking to regain his world heavyweight crown from Oleksandr Usyk in Saudi Arabia.
The British boxer lost his title to the Ukrainian star in a shock defeat in London last September.
After several delays, AJ finally gets his shot at a long-awaited rematch.
There was a delay in the negotiations, as well as in the war between Russia and Ukraine, in which Usyk fought.
But the pair will face off again this weekend, and here’s how to catch all the action.
When is Joshua vs Usyk 2?
- Joshua vs Usyk 2 will take place on Saturday 20th August.
- The fight will take place in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.
- Joshua last fought in Saudi Arabia in December 2019, with the fight starting at 4:00pm ET / 1:00pm ET time.
What TV channel is it on and can I stream it live?
A US TV network for the fight has yet to be announced.
It will be shown LIVE in the UK on Sky Sports Box Office.
The fight will cost UK viewers £26.95 but it’s still unclear if it will be PPV in the US.

Where will Joshua vs Usyk 2 take place?
The venue of Joshua vs Uysk 2 is the King Abdullah Sports City Arena, also known as the Shining Jewel.
The stadium can accommodate up to 62,000 spectators for a football game, but Joshua vs. Usyk 2 is expected to accommodate even more.
Saudi Arabia has been a controversial host country, with the oil-rich nation accused of sports laundering after spending huge sums to lure some of the world’s top golfers to their new LIV series.
However, Hearn has dismissed any such comparison. He said: “He’s not worried about a backlash because he’s done it before.
“He’ll eventually say, ‘Eddie over to you.’ I won’t pass the buck, but it’s very different when the deal is a 50/50 split. How can we go back to Usyk and say, ‘Let’s do it at Spurs because they’re just going to say it’s a non-starter.
