Sky Sports Box Office will be the official broadcaster in the UK and Ireland of the rematch, which takes place on 20th August 2022.
The fight, scheduled to take place in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, will see British heavyweight Anthony Joshua attempt to regain the WBA (Super), WBO and IBF titles after his unanimous decision defeat to Ukrainian Oleksandr Usyk last year.
Adam Smith, Head of Boxing Development for Sky Sports, said:
“Sky Sports viewers have enjoyed a long history with AJ, watching his every fight since he turned professional in 2013. We also know Oleksandr Usyk very well, having had the last four of the Ukrainian’s fights exclusively live on Sky Sports. This rematch is a massive occasion with everything on the line and so many questions to be answered. We can’t wait to bring it to boxing fans in the UK & Ireland in true Sky Sports fashion with all the build-up it deserves.”
Joshua and Usyk’s first fight at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London took place last September and was one of the most watched fights in Sky Sports Box Office history.
From September, further bouts featuring Anthony Joshua will transfer to DAZN. This follows a new deal between the boxer and the streaming service, announced earlier this year.
