Back in September 2021, Usyk defeated Joshua 32, in their first fight at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium prompting the Briton to losing his world heavyweight titles in the process.

Meanwhile, the rematch out to have taken place in May but the ongoing situation in the champion’s homeland resulted into a delay in the fight.
