Updated: Jun 13, 2022

Eddie Hearn might have revealed the date for the much anticipated Anthony Joshua and Oleksandr Usyk rematch after confirming on Thursday to be signing contracts for the bout. The matchroom chief said on Thursday that the match will happen between August 13 and 20, and also confirmed the venue for the bout. He said it will be staged in the Middle East with Jeddah’s new Superdome in Saudi Arabia expected to be announced as the venue. “We’ve got global media tours, TV rights to secure, international sponsorship deals." “You’re going to see that fight in August - the 13th and 20th are the proposed dates. We are literally signing the paperwork as we go in the last 24 hours. You will get an official announcement soon." “The international media tour will commence June 20 or something like that." “The fight is on, the fight is happening, the Middle East looks pretty much set. We’re pretty much there now.” Hearn said on Thursday. Joshua lost his WBA Super, IBF and WBO crowns to Usyk at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in September to suffer his second pro defeat and will be bidding to win them back from the Ukrainian and become a three-time world champion.
