In September, ‘AJ’ dropped his WBA (super), IBF, and WBO heavyweight titles to the Ukrainian on home soil. At the time, he was criticised massively for not using his size and strength enough and is expected to adopt a more aggressive approach for their second bout.

The fight was initially slated to take place on July 23rd in the Middle East but Hearn confirmed to BBTV that the date had to be pushed back to August due to them still having not signed an agreement just seven weeks away from the July date. Joshua has recently teamed up with American trainer Robert Garcia as he looks to re-claim his titles once again.

A clash between Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua has long been framed as a potential blockbuster and the biggest bout in this generation of British boxing. Undefeated Fury (32-0-1) has dominated almost all the major competition in the heavyweight division, while ‘AJ’ (24-2) was a seemingly invincible force until he lost to Andy Ruiz in 2019.
