Oleksandr Usyk (19-0, 13 KO) will put his WBA, WBO and IBF heavyweight world titles on the line in a main event rematch against Anthony Joshua (24-2, 22 KO) later today (Sat., Aug. 20, 2022) live on DAZN from inside Jeddah Superdome in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.
UFCFight.us will deliver LIVE Stream coverage of today’s main event right here. The DAZN broadcast kicks off at 12 p.m. ET, with Joshua and Usyk likely making the walk closer to 5:30 p.m. ET (stream the fight here).
The two fighters first met back in Sept. 2021 on Joshua’s home soil of London, England. To much surprise, Usyk had his way with Joshua and cruised to a unanimous decision win to capture his heavyweight gold. Having competed most of his career at the cruiserweight level Usyk’s size was a question mark heading into the fight, but he proved his skills are as sharp as any heavyweight in the world today.
Entering the rematch, Joshua is looking to salvage some sort of momentum in the heavyweight division. The former heavyweight champion is just 2-2 in his last four trips to the ring and would need a win over Usyk to push for his long-awaited showdown with retired heavyweight legend, Tyson Fury. But considering Usyk defeated Joshua the first time around and only seems to get better each time we see him compete at the heavyweight level tonight’s title fight rematch is going to be a tough test for Joshua.
