The newly-built Tottenham Hotspur Stadium has been the scene of incredible action ever since its opening in 2019.
This trend will continue with two London-based clubs, Arsenal and Tottenham playing on Sunday the 26th of September.
Yet, these titans won’t be the only ones fighting tooth and nail in north London .
Joshua is seen as the home favourite growing up in Hertfordshire a mere 40 minutes from the stadium.
His opponent, Usyk, has been seen bulking heavily according to trainers and coaches alike for a match in which he is seen as the underdog.
Usyk’s own figure parallels Joshua’s more trimmed and athletic approach to boxing. Known affectionately as ‘The Cat’ by fans, due to his swiftness and agility.
Usyk can often be seen conquering the Cruiserweight category with his championship win in 2018, as well as being the first in this category to achieve all four major Boxing Championships, proving himself to be quite the opposition to Joshua.

The boxing world and especially the British fan-base was hoping to see the much anticipated Tyson Fury vs Joshua fight for the world heavyweight championship with Joshua defending his title against the two-time world heavyweight champion.
Joshua has since blamed the breakdown in negotiations on Fury’s side on a fight that would decide the undisputed champion.
A US court ruling found that Fury would have to fight Deontay Wilder first, in turn eliminating any chance of the all-British battle, perfect for the North London venue.
Joshua claimed that Fury and his team let ‘the world down’ and argued that the fight against Usyk will be minimal compared to his fight with Fury.
The defending champion claimed ‘after Usyk I will defend my belts.’News Now - Sport News
