Anthony Joshua vs Oleksandr Usyk set to take place at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium

Joshua-Usyk is set to be confirmed within the next week after terms have been agreed.

Anthony Joshua will face Oleksandr Usyk at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, according to reports.

Usyk is the WBO mandatory challenger to unified heavyweight champion Joshua and the pair are expected to meet in North London.

The venue holds 62,000 seats although it is yet to be revealed as to how many fans will be allowed to watch live.

The first weekend of September could be the preferred date if they cannot secure Josh Warrington's rematch against Mauricio Lara at Headingley Stadium.

Joshua will return to the ring for the first time since knocking out Kubrat Pulev at Wembley's SSE Arena - a fight originally scheduled to take place at the home of Tottenham Hotspur.

AJ wanted an undisputed showdown with Tyson Fury on August 14 only for talks to stall due to a court arbitration ruling granted Deontay Wilder a rematch against Fury.

Usyk - a former undisputed champion at cruiserweight - now has the chance to follow just Evander Holyfield and David Haye by repeating his success at heavyweight next.

Since moving up from 200-pounds, Usyk has fought just twice, beating Chazz Witherspoon and Derek Chisora.
