Anthony Joshua heavyweight title defence against Oleksandr Usyk confirmed for Tottenham on 25 September
Joshua was ordered to defend his WBO title after the collapse of his bout with fellow Briton Tyson Fury., but risks his IBF, WBA and WBO belts against the Ukrainian.
Joshua called Fury “a fraud” after their proposed meeting on 14 August in Saudi Arabia was called off.
“We are two Olympic gold medallists who have fought our way to the top and never avoided challenges,” Joshua said.
“The venue is exceptional, the atmosphere will be electric, I’m honoured to be the first person to fight in such an awe-inspiring venue. The stage is set and I am ready to handle business.”
