The Rage on the Red Sea will be held at the Jeddah Superdome in Saudi Arabia this Saturday as Anthony Joshua attempts to reclaim his heavyweight titles from Oleksandr Usyk.
Usyk, 35, conveniently pointed to Joshua, 32, in London last September to dethrone the Brit and handed “AJ” the second loss of his pro career.
Meanwhile, Usyk remained undefeated with the win, leading to the Ukrainian becoming the world twoweight champion after his stint as the only undisputed cruiserweight king of the four-belt era.
Joshua traveled to Saudi Arabia in December 2019 to reclaim the WBA, WBO, IBF and IBO belts and featured Andy Ruiz Jr. six months after a shock defeat to the Mexican in Riyadh. Now Joshua returns to Saudi Arabia with the same mission: reclaim the belts.
Here’s everything you need to know ahead of his seismic rematch with Usyk.
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 many fans will be present?
