Anthony Joshua returns this weekend, with the Brit defending his heavyweight titles against his WBO challenger Oleksandr Usyk.

It’s Joshua’s first fight since he knocked out Kubrat Pulev last December, while Usyk was last in action against another Brit in Derek Chisora last October.

Joshua v Usyk isn’t quite the mega Tyson Fury showdown we were all dreaming of but it’ll do for now. If he comes through the Ukrainian, it could potentially set up a summer showdown with the Gypsy King next year.

Below is everything you need to know about the big event at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Saturday night.

Joshua v Usyk Odds

Anthony Joshua – 4/11
Draw – 22/1
Oleksandr Usyk – 9/4

Paddy’s traders have priced up a whole host of markets for the Anthony Joshua v Oleksandr Usyk fight including Round Betting and Method of Victory.

Joshua, who has only suffered one defeat in his illustrious career, is the heavy favourite heading into Saturday’s showdown.

The 31-year-old has won via KO/TKO in 22 of his 24 victories as a professional and there’s some value in him to do it again against former cruiserweight Usyk.

Usyk, who has had just two heavyweight fights since moving up with the big boys, will be hoping to box and move on Saturday night to avoid Joshua’s heavy shots.

You can get a decent price on Usyk, who is undefeated, to win by points or decision.
