Anthony Joshua’s World heavyweight title fight against Oleksandr Usyk is set to be staged at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, Sportivation.com.ng reports.

Joshua has been holding talks about a fight against WBO mandatory challenger Uysk and the 62, 000 capacity Stadium has been chosen to host the clash which is billed to hold in September.
