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.
The WBA, IBF, and WBO champion was initially set for a unification battle bout against Tyson Fury in Saudi Arabia on August 14 before Fury was ordered to face Deontay Wilder for the third time.
The decision left Joshua’s promoter Eddie Hearn scrambling for a replacement and the next option was mandator challenger Oleksandr Usyk, who moved up to the heavyweight category in 2019 after beating Derek Chisora.
Usyk’s promoter Alexander Krassyuk told Sky Sports last week he was hoping to finalise the fight.
“We are waiting for King AJ’s decision whether he is brave enough to get dethroned.”
