Three-belt unified champion Anthony Joshua will put his titles at stake against the unbeaten Oleksandr Usyk on September 25 at the Tottenham Hotspur stadium in the UK.
Following a successful KO win over Kubrat Pulev in 2020, Joshua will enter another title defense instead of the possible unification battle. However, that hasn’t changed his energy or approach towards the bout. The Brit boxer has expressed his views on social media, channeling his sheer excitement towards the fight. Live from the empty stadium, Joshua filmed himself and sent a message to all his fans.
“Look at this behind me and look at this amazing stadium. On the 25th of September, this place will be rocking and I can’t wait. I am gonna be defending my heavyweight championship belts. Let’s go. Let’s get it on. Now imagine, 60-80 thousand people in there making this place bounce. I can’t wait..” said Anthony Joshua while filming the entire stadium.
It will be Joshua’s second consecutive fight in his home country. Following his back-to-back collisions against Andy Ruiz Jr. in 2019, ‘AJ’ returned to the Wembley Arena, fought Kubrat Pulev, and re-entered the KO column.
The upcoming heavyweight title war will bring two elite hard-hitters and Olympic medalists against each other for a bout in what many expect to be a jam-packed stadium.
