JOSHUA was last in action in December 2020 in a successful defence of his three belts against Kubrat Pulev, dropping the veteran multiple times before clinching a ninth-round knockout at The O2 Arena.
USYK continues his step up to the heavyweight division, previously dominating a game Derek Chisora in October 2020 to clinch the WBO Inter-Continental heavyweight title.
Fans will also witness a stacked undercard, as WBO cruiserweight world champion LAWRENCE OKOLIE puts his belt on the line for the first time against his mandatory challenger DILAN PRASOVIC. CALLUM SMITH makes his highly anticipated return to the ring, stepping up to light-heavyweight against Dominican boxer LENIN CASTILLO, while FLORIAN MARKU faces up against Italy’s MAXIM PRODAN for the IBF international welterweight title. Lightweight prospect CAMPBELL HATTON takes on Spain’s IZAN DURA, stepping up to 6 rounds after an impressive win at Fight Camp against Jakub Laskowski.
