Joshua (24-1, 22 KOs) last dominated Kubrat Pulev to score a brutal ninth-round knockout at The SSE Arena, Wembley in December 2020. The outing was his first fight on UK soil since he stopped Alexander Povetkin in seven explosive rounds at Wembley Stadium back in September 2018.
“AJ” is the local Heavyweight hero famed for his unrivalled athleticism, explosive power, and versatility. In his path is the dangerous Ukrainian Usyk (18-0, 13 KOs), who successfully made the move to the heavyweight division after dominating at cruiserweight, ending his extraordinary spell at 200lbs as the undisputed king with a phenomenal run of victories.
Usyk operates behind a mysterious and unpredictable persona but is the real deal with a boxing IQ that’s one of the best in the fight game.
Both fighters are incredible specimens on their own paths to greatness with two exceptional arsenals of weaponry. It’s an unforeseen series of events and circumstance that has brought these great fighters together but their difference in styles, personalities and journeys will make for the perfect storm on September 25.
The list of bouts featured on Joshua vs Usyk undercard is expected to be announced shortly.
