Sky Sport Box Office to broadcast Usyk/Joshua rematch

Sky Sports has confirmed that it will be exclusive PPV broadcaster of the hotly-anticipated Oleksandr Usyk vs Anthony Joshua rematch next month.

The fight is scheduled to take place in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia on August 20, and sees Joshua  attempt to regain the WBA (Super), WBO and IBF titles after his loss to Usyk last year in what was only the second loss of the British fighter’s professional career.

Sky Sports anticipates high demand for the event, with the pair’s first fight at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London last September being one of the most-watched fights in Sky Sports Box Office History.  

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.”
