Oleksandr Usyk and Anthony Joshua are finally ready to face off in the ring.

The long-awaited unified rematch for the heavyweight title has a confirmed date and location, which will take place on August 20 in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, rtv21.tv reports.

Ukraine's Usyk will defend his IBF, WBA, WBO and IBO title nearly eleven months after he ousted Joshua last September at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in North London.

It will be his second appearance in the Middle East after fighting Andy Ruiz in Diriyah in December 2019./21Media
