Anthony Joshua vs Oleksandr Usyk 2 UK Start Time: What is it?

Anthony Joshua will be heading to Saudi Arabia on Saturday, August 20th 2022 for arguably the biggest fight of his boxing career, when he takes on Oleksandr Usyk in a rematch from their bout at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium back in September 2021.

Unlike some major boxing events, this bout will be taking place from Jeddah in Saudi Arabia, meaning that the start time in the UK is at a far more sociable hour than the 5 to 6 AM BST start times when a big fight takes place in the United States!

Joshua will be hoping to impress on the night with an emphatic win to either tempt Tyson Fury out of retirement or secure a box office payday against Deontay Wilder, so it’s worth knowing what time you can catch all of the action!

Here is everything you need to know about the UK Start Time for Anthony Joshua vs Oleksandr Usyk on Sky Sports Box Office.
