It will be the biggest fight in Britain in more than three years when Anthony Joshua takes on Oleksandr Usyk in their world heavyweight title showdown tomorrow.

Joshua's WBA, WBO, IBF and IBO belts will be on the line in front of an estimated 67,000 fans at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, the highest British boxing attendance since Joshua beat Russian Alexander Povetkin at Wembley in September 2018.

Joshua wants to become the undisputed heavyweight champion and knows defeat would wreck those hopes.

The 31-year-old who has a record of 24 wins and one loss wants to enjoy every moment of his 11th successive world title fight.

He says he wants to be poised, relaxed and precise and cannot wait to get in the ring.

Standing in Joshua's way is Usyk, a 34-year-old from Ukraine, who was an undisputed world champion at Cruiserweight before moving up to the higher weight category.

Usyk says his fight against Joshua will make another step in history and it will be something people talk about and remember.

The fight program will begin at 9am tomorrow.
