Usyk defeated Joshua in September last year in London and the Brit is aiming to reclaim the WBA, IBF and WBO titles from the Ukrainian when the duo meet in Saudi Arabia.

The fight last year was a masterclass in boxing from Usyk, but with Joshua determined to get his revenge, it promises to be a fascinating night in the Middle East.

The start time has not been confirmed, but Joshua and Usyk will not make their ring walks before 10pm. It is anticipated that the fight will begin somewhere between 10-11pm, although this depends on how the undercard progresses.
