British boxer Anthony Joshua will tonight (August 20) take on Oleksandr Usyk in a bid to win back his world championship belts.

Ukrainian Usyk took Joshua's WBA, IBF, WBO and IBO heavyweight titles when he beat the 32-year-old Londoner on points at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in September last year.

Now, almost 12 months on, the pair are set to clash again in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, in a fight billed the 'Rage on the Red Sea'.
