WATCH Unified heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua continues his quest to become undisputed heavyweight champion by putting his WBA (Super), IBF, WBO, and IBO heavyweight titles on the line against former undisputed cruiserweight champion Oleksandr Usyk at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London, England on September 26. AEST.
Joshua expected to have his long-awaited showdown with WBC champion Tyson Fury to determine an undisputed champion.

Instead of waiting to see the outcome, Joshua decided to step into the ring with a dangerous opponent in the form of WBO No. 1 contender Usyk.
