Eddie Hearn says he’s received an approach to stage the Joshua vs Usyk 2 rematch in the Middle East. However, Hearn’s option is to bring it back to the UK, but he says he’s open to potentially staging it in Ukraine. Finally, Joshua vs Usyk Rematch is planned to be held in 23 July 2022 and take place on Saudi Arabia.
Hearn wants to stage the fight wherever it can bring in the most revenue. If that means Ukraine or the Middle East, he’s ready to take the Joshua vs Usyk Rematch fight there.
When is Anthony Joshua vs Oleksandr Usyk Fight
Joshua was outclassed by Usyk at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium last September, losing his world heavyweight crowns on a hugely difficult night.
Usyk travelled back to his home country and joined the military in the defence of Ukraine after the Russian invasion which began in February.
Joshua vs Usyk 2 live stream on TV: channel details
Hearn is closing Matchroom Boxing’s long-term partnership with Sky Sports to go all in on DAZN in the UK. Hearn also has a major U.S deal, so Joshua will not be part of this roster either and his next bout against Usyk could potentially air on pay-per-view by Sky Sports Box Office domestically.
As Usyk and Joshua fight for the undisputed heavyweight championship of the world, they will also be fighting to save their careers. The winner can join what might have been a short list as boxing’s only two-division champion in history but must win by knockout or unanimous decision against AJ who has not lost since 2016 when he was knocked out by Anthony Yarded.
As both men are undefeated it is difficult to predict which way this match may go. Should one man lose there would likely be an explosion around social media with countless memes mocking them while promoting their opponent as “the best boxer on Earth!” But if that were to happen then we could see just how much TV networks value ratings -and money – because these.

Anthony Joshua Fight History
Anthony Joshua has been a superstar as an amateur and a superstar in the professional boxing ranks. He’s done it all.
AJ, born on October 15, 1989 and now 31 years old, was Olympic super-heavyweight champion at London 2012 to cap a glittering amateur career, before turning pro with Hearn’s Matchroom promotional outfit.
Since then he has fought 25 times with 24 victories and just one defeat – that shocking loss to Andy Ruiz Jr at Madison Square Garden in June 2019. AJ swiftly avenged that loss with an easy points win in their Saudi Arabia rematch in December 2019.
The Watford man – who stands 6ft 6ins (1.98m) tall and has a reach of 82ins (2.08m), is one of the most devastating finishers in the sport. Some 22 of his 24 victories have come inside distance, with only Joseph Parker and Ruiz in that rematch taking him the full distance.
Joshua has beaten a string of top level heavyweights en route to holding the IBF, WBA and WBO world heavyweight titles – including Ruiz, Parker, Charles Martin, Dillian Whyte, Alexander Povetkin, Kubrat Pulev, Carlos Takam, Dominic Breazeale and Eric Molina.
Oleksandr Usyk Fight History
Like Joshua, Oleksandr Usyk was brilliant as an amateur and has been brilliant as a pro. He is another elite talent.
This sensational boxer from the Ukraine, like AJ, claimed gold at the London Olympics of 2012, this time in the heavyweight division. It was the exclamation point on a superb amateur career which finished with a stellar 335-15 record.
Usyk, who was born on January 17, 1987 and is now 34 years old, has now fought 18 times as a professional with a perfect 18-0 record. Some 13 of those 18 victories have come inside distance.
Oleksandr, who stands 6ft 3ins (1.91m) tall and has a reach of 78ins (1.98m), is a terrific technician who swept all before him in the cruiserweight division en route to unifying all of the major titles.
His slick skills mark him out as one of the greatest talents in the sport today, and he capped his reign at 200lbs by first dominating Murat Gassiev in Moscow in July 2018 and then knocking out Tony Bellew in Manchester four months later.
Since moving up to heavy, Usyk has fought twice – the first a comfortable success against Chazz Witherspoon in 2019 and then a much more difficult decision victory over Chisora in October 2020.
That fight with Chisora showed Usyk could hang with a big elite heavy, but also raised a few questions. Would he have the power to trouble the very very best in the marquee weight class? We should find out when he steps into the ring in August.
