Joshua, 32, lost their first fight one-year ago and wants to commemorate the 10th anniversary of London Olympic gold. He will be reclaiming his spot at the top of the heavyweight class table.
This could also mean getting into a fight with Tyson Fury.
There was a lot of doubt about whether this blockbuster heavyweight would go ahead.
As AJ and his Ukrainian opponent watched their thrilling match-up get pushed back twice, once in May and again July.
Russia’s war against Ukraine also had an effect on the arrangement for the rematch.
Usyk 35, returned home to his homeland earlier this tear in order to fight against Russia. The war began in February.
He’s now at training camp for his biggest fight and has revealed the start time.
Usyk dominated Joshua’s game in front of 70,000 people at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium last Sept. to win the WBA and WBO world titles.

“He will eventually go, Eddie over to you.” Although I won’t pass the buck, it is quite different when the deal is 50/50. We can’t go back to Usyk, say “Let’s do this at Spurs”, because they’ll just tell us it’s a non-starter.”

“Then, I will enter the boxing ring and make you happy with my boxing.”?
