Could this be what it takes for Anthony Joshua to become the undisputed champion in his career field?

British boxer AJ heads into a rematch with the Ukrainian professional boxer Oleksandr Usyk in a bid to reclaim the WBA (Super), IBF, WBO and IBO heavyweight titles after losing them in the pair's last outing.

Last year, Usyk won by unanimous decision at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium and we can't see him giving up the title so easily. Will he really relinquish his grip on the weight division?

The victor on the big night will stand just two titles short of undisputed heavyweight champion of the world status. Tyson Fury owns the two remaining belts.

RadioTimes.com rounds up everything you need to know about the timings for the Usyk v Joshua 2 fight.

However, a date for July was set, though that was pushed back a month due to the sheer amount of promotional work that has been done to attract a major crowd for this PPV event.
