On Saturday, the anticipated heavyweight rematch between Anthony Joshua and Oleksandr Usyk will take place at the King Abdullah Sports City in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. The rivals first fought in September last year, with Usyk winning by unanimous decision.
This time the WBA, IBF and WBO world titles will all be on the line, as will the Ring Magazine belt after WBC champion Tyson “Gypsy King” Fury recently confirmed his retirement from the sport.
The stacked boxing event also features Swedish Badou Jack who will face Richard Rivera in a cruiserweight contest. Jack currently rides a four-fight win streak with just one bout going the distance. He has a record of 26-3-3, with 16 knockouts. His opponent, “Popeye the Sailor Man” Rivera, has a record of 21-0 with 16 knockouts.
