Usyk vs Joshua 2 Live Stream Free, Date, time, TV Channel Info. Anthony Joshua vs Oleksandr Usyk 2 date: UK start time, DAZN coverage, full undercard and live stream – Saudi Arabia to stage huge world title rematch
The blockbuster rematch between Anthony Joshua and Oleksandr Usyk is coming up next weekend as AJ looks to reclaim his world titles and the action will be live on talkSPORT.
Joshua was outclassed by Usyk at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium last September, losing his world heavyweight crowns in the process.
The rematch was originally planned for May but the ongoing situation in the champion’s native Ukraine put that on hold.
Usyk travelled back to his homeland and joined the military in defence of Ukraine after the Russian invasion which began in February.
The 35-year-old later received permission from his country’s sports minister to return to his training camp and gear up for the epic rematch with AJ.
Meanwhile, Tyson Fury destroyed Dillian Whyte at Wembley in April to retain his WBC crown in stunning style.
The WBC heavyweight champion then announced that he would be retiring from the sport.
However, Fury has since admitted he could face the winner of Joshua vs Usyk 2 in a huge unification bout later this year if the money was right.

Joshua vs Usyk 2: What have the fighters said?
The boxing stars came face-to-face in late June for the first time since their fight in their opening press conference to preview their rematch.
Joshua said: “Definitely the hunger’s still there.
“Blips happen, but resilience, mental toughness, consistency will prevail. I’m focussed on the target sitting over there.
“God willing I’ll perform and become three-time heavyweight champion of the world.
“The fight with Usyk, he bust my a*** for some rounds and I had to take that defeat like a man as well. I hold myself accountable.
“In the fight in September I was wrong and he was right, I have to reverse that August 20…
“We have to give him, his team credit where credit’s due. I respect him and his craft and what he’s achieved.
“If I’m around someone that’s better than me on the night, I have to push myself to be better than them. The great thing is I’ve got a second chance.”
