Ukrainian fight fans will be able to watch Oleksandr Usyk's WBA, WBO and IBF world title defence against Anthony Joshua for free after he was gifted the rights by host country Saudi Arabia.

The pair are set to go head-to-head for a second time in Jeddah in what will be Usyk's first world title defence at heavyweight. 

The previous encounter saw Usyk triumph on points in what was a dominant display last September at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. 

Now after returning from the frontline in Ukraine's war against Russia to prepare for the fight, Usyk will be looking to provide some joy for his homeland. 

The former unidsputed cruiserweight champion originally tried to buy the TV rights from the Saudi organisers, but they refused any form of payment and instead allowed Usyk to broadcast the fight free of charge.
