AJ finally gets his shot at a long-awaited rematch after a number of delays.

There was a hold-up in negotiations as well as the Russia-Ukraine war which Usyk fought in.

But the pair will go head-to-head again this weekend and here’s how to watch all the action.

When is Joshua vs Usyk 2?

  • Joshua vs Usyk 2 will take place on Saturday, August 20.
  • The fight is going to be held in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.
  • Joshua last fought in Saudi Arabia in December 2019, with the fight beginning at 4pm ET/1pm ET time.

What TV channel is it on and can I live stream it?

Sports streaming service DAZN will broadcast the bout LIVE in the United States.

It will be available as part of the normal package – which costs $19.99 per month of $79.99 annually.

The bout will be shown LIVE in the United Kingdom on Sky Sports Box Office.

The fight will cost British viewers £26.95 to watch, but it’s unclear yet if it will be PPV in the US.


Joshua vs Usyk 2 FULL CARD

The full Joshua vs Usyk 2 undercard has finally been announced and promises to be a cracker.

Callum Smith will compete in Jeddah, however, just as he did on the first Joshua vs Usyk undercard when he takes on Mathieu Bauderlique in a WBC light-heavyweight final eliminator.

While heavyweight star Filip Hrgovic takes on Zhilei Zhang in an IBF heavyweight title eliminator.

Badou Jack will also be in action against Richard Rivera.

Hearn, however, has dismissed any such comparison. He said: “He is not worried about any backlash because he has done it before.

“He will ultimately go, ‘Eddie over to you’. I am not going to pass the buck but it is very different when the deal is a 50/50 split. How can we go back to Usyk and say, ‘Let’s do it at Spurs’ because they will just say it is a non-starter.”
