Anthony Joshua and Oleksandr Usyk collide tonight at the King Abdullah Sport City, Jeddah, Saudi Arabia in the most-anticipated boxing match of the calendar year. Last time out, the beloved Brit dropped his world titles in front of a home crowd at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London last September.

Now, 11 months later, ‘AJ’ is seeking revenge as he looks to become a three-time heavyweight world champion. Besides the WBA (super), IBF, and WBO titles – previously held by the Watford powerhouse – the lineal strap (Ring Magazine belt) is also on the line after Tyson Fury vacated the crown following his recent re-retirement.

In what is undoubtedly a must-watch encounter, here, Express Sport gives you all the coverage options to ensure you don’t miss out on the Saudi showdown.

Joshua: “I’m focused on the goal, God willing I’ll perform, and I’ll become three-time Heavyweight Champion of the World. With Andy Ruiz, I think a lot of people can see before the fight things weren’t 100%. You’ve got to be strong, thick-skinned; we take our loss like a man. When I win, I keep it moving and I thank everybody. When you lose, you have to stay humble as well in defeat. We kept it moving and I knew I could come back again and do what I have to do.”

Usyk: “I am very happy to be here in Saudi Arabia. It is very pleasant for me and my team. We are doing what we have to do to achieve our goals. I have never made any loud or bright speeches. To become World Champion all I did was work hard in my training camp and gym. That’s what I am going to do until the day of the fight and my boxing will make me happy.”
