The pair will square off at Tottenham Hotspur stadium in London on Saturday night, with the Brit hoping to consolidate his status as unified heavyweight champion to set up an undisputed fight with Tyson Fury or Deontay Wilder.

The WBO, WBA (Super) and IBF champion takes on Usyk later this month at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, and is hopeful he can fight Fury next.

WBA, IBF and WBO heavyweight champion Joshua had appeared set for a unification showdown with fellow Briton Fury, the WBC title-holder, before a United States arbitrator in May ordered the latter to have a third bout against Deontay Wilder.

The third clash between the WBC title holder and the American was set for July 24 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. However The Athletic reported on Friday that a spread of positive cases through Fury’s gym had made the bout, according to one primary source, “overwhelmingly problematic”.

Yet ‘The Gypsy King’ maintains it will not be a traditional MMA bout, instead offering Ngannou the chance to box him inside the Octagon whilst wearing four ounce gloves.

Wilder and the Gypsy King are going to meet for a third time after a judge ruled on the legitimacy at the American’s right to a rematch following his brutal defeat in Las Vegas back in February 2020.
