Anthony Joshua vs Oleksandr Usyk 2 prize money and fight purse

Anthony Joshua and Oleksandr Usyk will share the ring again this month as the heavyweights take on the WBA, WBO, IBF and IBO titles in Saudi Arabia.

The pair’s rematch comes 11 months after their first meeting, which saw Usyk comprehensively pass Joshua in the Brit’s own backyard and take the belt from “AJ” at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London.

Now Joshua, 32, will look to regain the title for the second time in his career when he meets the undefeated Ukrainian in Jeddah. In 2019, Joshua lost the belts to Andy Ruiz Jr. in an injury loss at Madison Square Garden in New York City before avenging that result with a decision win over the Mexican in Saudi Arabia later that year.

Can Joshua repeat that feat by handing Usyk, 35, the first loss of the southpaw’s pro career?

Here’s everything you need to know ahead of the seismic rematch.

When is it?

Usyk vs. Joshua 2 takes place on Saturday 20th August at the Jeddah Superdome in Saudi Arabia.

Ring walks for the main event contest are expected to occur at approximately 10:30pm BST (2:30pm PT, 4:30pm CT, 5:30pm ET).

How can I view it?

Sky Sports Box Office will be the only place to watch the fight in the UK and Ireland.

The pay-per-view event costs £26.95 in the UK and €31.95 in Ireland.

How much will the fighters earn?

Per the mirrorJoshua earned £15million for his first fight with Usyk who earned £5million from that fight.

It’s still unclear how much each fighter will receive for their role in the rematch, although both men are likely to make more than last time out.

Joshua recently signed a £100m deal with DAZN, despite the streaming service not having the rights to broadcast the Brit’s rematch with Usyk.
