Anthony Joshua has defeated every boxer he has faced as a professional so far, but on Sept. 25 he takes on one of his most difficult challenges to date.
Oleksandr Usyk, like Joshua, is a London 2012 gold medalist. Like Joshua, he has beaten every professional boxer that has opposed him. However unlike Joshua, he has also yet to be defeated at all.
Usyk dominated at cruiserweight, winning the Muhammad Ali Trophy and unifying the division before moving up to heavyweight. There, we have yet to see the best of him in victories over Chazz Witherspoon and Derek Chisora.
Nonetheless, regardless of whether he can truly dominate at the maximum weight class like he did under 200lbs, he will undoubtedly present an entirely new obstacle for 'AJ' with his technical prowess and disarming but destructive approach.
Here's everything you need to know ahead of the huge fight night, airing on DAZN in over 170 countries worldwide.
