Oleksandr Usyk-Anthony Joshua live results and analysis

Oleksandr Usyk will defend his three world heavyweight titles in a rematch against former champion Anthony Joshua on Saturday at the Jeddah Superdome in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia (DAZN, 1:00 p.m. ET, main event scheduled to start at 5:30 p.m. ET).

Usyk (19-0, 13 KOs), 35, of Ukraine, overcame a cut to his right eyebrow and dominated Joshua last September to earn a unanimous decision victory and capture the WBA, WBO and IBF belts. And he expects to keep her.

“We learned from each other in the first fight, but this is a sequel and the first round on Saturday will be round 13,” Usyk said during a press conference on Wednesday. “We had enough time to study each other. We were born to fight for life, for belts, for everything. If you don’t compete, you don’t win.”

Joshua (24-2, 22 KOs), 32, of England, exercised his contractual right to an immediate rematch and vows to reclaim the championship on Saturday.

“That’s what competition is about, setting goals that I want to achieve and being disciplined enough to pursue them,” Joshua said. “[The belts], they mean something, but that’s all at the end of the goal. It’s not like I’m skipping the process. I’m focused on the process.”
