talkSPORT secures exclusive audio rights for Oleksandr Usyk vs Anthony Joshua

talkSPORT will broadcast the fiercely anticipated fight between Oleksandr Usyk and Anthony Joshua live and free to air from Saudi Arabia, as the two heavyweights step back into the ring on Saturday 20th August.

Securing the exclusive audio rights to the fight, talkSPORT will be the only UK broadcaster to offer the rematch to boxing fans for free.

Coverage will include exclusive behind the scenes access from Jeddah, as Joshua looks to reclaim his world WBA, WBO, IBF and IBO titles, including front-row seats to the weigh-in and press conference.

talkSPORT’s team will be made up by Fight Night presenters Adam Catterall and Gareth A Davies, commentator Andy Clarke, sports broadcaster Ade Oladipo and former bantamweight boxer Spencer Oliver.

Head of talkSPORT Lee Clayton said:

‘The Usyk v Joshua rematch is heating up to be one of the most exciting fights of the year and as we are Powered by Fans, I am delighted that our listeners can enjoy the fight for free on talkSPORT later this month.

With world-class commentary live from Saudi Arabia, exclusive behind the scenes content and access to the weigh in and press conference, it’s time to turn to talkSPORT.’
