CONFIRMED: Exciting Heavyweight Bout for Anthony Joshua in September

Joshua faces tough challenge in his return to Wembley

Anthony Joshua has officially lined up his next big fight, which will take place on September 21 at Wembley Stadium in London, under the prestigious Riyadh Season event.

Joshua’s Road to Redemption

Anthony Joshua (28-3, 25 KOs) has shown remarkable resilience after his back-to-back losses to Oleksandr Usyk in 2022. Since then, Joshua has put together a string of four consecutive victories, with his most recent triumph being a stunning second-round knockout of former UFC heavyweight champion Francis Ngannou in Riyadh in March. Joshua is now eyeing a return to the top by reclaiming the IBF title, a belt he has previously held twice.

Dubois Steps Up

Joshua’s opponent for this anticipated bout is Daniel Dubois (21-2, 20 KOs). Dubois recently ascended to the position of IBF champion after his interim title was upgraded following Oleksandr Usyk’s decision to vacate the IBF belt. Usyk, who continues to hold the WBA, WBC, and WBO titles, recently defeated Tyson Fury, becoming the first undisputed heavyweight champion of the four-belt era. He is set to rematch Fury on December 21 in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

For Joshua, this fight is more than just a title match; it’s a chance to solidify his comeback and position himself for future high-profile bouts, potentially against Usyk or Tyson Fury. Dubois, on the other hand, is looking to cement his status as a top contender in the heavyweight division.
