Going into Saturday's rematch against unified world heavyweight champion Oleksandr Usyk, Anthony Joshua finds himself in a position he has never experienced before. 

For the first time in his professional boxing career, Joshua is being made the underdog for a fight. 

It's no surprise considering how convincingly Joshua was beaten by Usyk in the first meeting between the two last September, but now the 32-year-old has a chance to put the record straight against one of boxing's most talented fighters. 

With a new coaching team which includes legendary trainer Robert Garcia, Joshua will be hoping they can implement a gameplan which could topple the Ukrainian and continue on the road to undisputed. 

DAZN gives an overview of the London 2012 Olympic gold medalist's career below.

Notable career highlights

Anthony Joshua becomes a two-time champion: December 12, 2019

After losing his IBF, WBO and WBA world heavyweight titles to Andy Ruiz six months prior, Anthony Joshua went straight back into a rematch with the Mexican in Saudi Arabia. 

Taking advantage of an overweight Ruiz, Joshua's superior movement tired out his opponent who somehow managed to last the full 12 rounds and saw the Brit declared the winner on points in what was a dominant performance. 

Anthony Joshua stops Wladimir Klitschko in a heavyweight thriller: April 29, 2017

The fight between Anthony Joshua and Wladimir Klitschko for the IBF and WBA world heavyweight titles was a passing of the torch moment in the heavyweight division. 

Klitshcko was hoping to have one last ride in the heavyweight division as champion, while Joshua looked to cement himself as the main man in the sport's most glamorous division, and what transpired in front of a sell-out crowd at Wembley Stadium was nothing short of a classic. 

Joshua started off strong and floored his opponent in the fifth round, but then it looked as if he was on the brink of his first defeat as a professional when he was knocked down by Klitschko in the sixth, but Joshua managed to rise up and unleash a relentless onslaught.

Come the penultimate round of this 12-round contest, Joshua's left uppercut rocked Klitschko who found himself on the canvas once more, and despite answering the referee's count, the Ukrainian was sent crashing to the ring once more as a result of a barrage from the British star and prompted the referee David Fields to stop the fight. 

Anthony Joshua wins his first world heavyweight title: April 9, 2016

Charles Martin may have been the defending IBF world heavyweight champion going into this clash with Anthony Joshua at London's O2 Arena, but the gulf in class and ability was clear to see on fight night. 

From the opening bell, Joshua had Martin on the back foot and was finding success with his right hand. Then come the second round Joshua landed and knocked down his opponent within the opening 60 seconds.

Martin managed to just about answer the referee's count, but was then immediately back on the canvas after another explosive Joshua right hand which brought the fight to a close and saw Joshua fulfil his destiny.
