Joshua vs Usyk fight date time PPV price IBO heavyweight. Unified heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua continues his quest to become undisputed heavyweight champion by putting his WBA (Super), IBF, WBO, and IBO heavyweight titles on the line against former undisputed cruiserweight champion Oleksandr Usyk at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London, England on September 26. AEST.
Joshua expected to have his long-awaited showdown with WBC champion Tyson Fury to determine an undisputed champion. However, an arbitrator ruled in favor of Deontay Wilder to get his third fight with Fury before Joshua could. Instead of waiting to see the outcome, Joshua decided to step into the ring with a dangerous opponent in the form of WBO No. 1 contender Usyk.
The undefeated Usyk (18-0, 13 KOs) is a highly decorated champion that captured Olympic gold in 2012, turned pro a year later and became the fourth male boxer in history to simultaneously hold the WBA, WBC, WBO and IBF titles. He’s currently ranked on multiple pound-for-pound lists. After becoming the undisputed cruiserweight champion in 2018, Usyk made the jump to heavyweight and has victories over Chazz Witherspoon and Derek Chisora.
But Usyk’s next heavyweight fight will certainly be his toughest against a fellow 2012 Olympic gold medalist who happens to be one of the best heavyweights in the world. The fight can be streamed on DAZN, which has a subscription price of $2.99 per month or $99.99 for the year. The Joshua vs. Usyk fight is included in the subscription with no additional cost.
