Anthony Joshua Vs. Oleksandr Usyk Undercard Lineup Announced
Boxing fans are in for a treat on September 25, the night when Anthony Joshua will defend his heavyweight title against Ukraine’s Oleksandr Usyk.
The fight card for the mega event has been released by Matchroom Boxing and DAZN. It features a super fight between Maxim Prodan (18-0-1, 15 KOs) and Florian Marku (8-0-1, 5 KOs). Their welterweight bout has been set for 10 rounds.
They were initially scheduled to box for the Galahad-Dickens card on August 7.
The other two big names are Lawrence Okolie (16-0, 13 KO) and Dilan Prasovic (15-0, 12 KO). Okolie is the firm favorite in this contest considering that the WBO cruiserweight title-holder has more experience than his undefeated, yet untested opponent.
Callum Smith and Lenin Castillo will also be seen in action in a ten-round light-heavyweight bout. Smith (27-1, 19 KO) is coming off a big loss against Canelo Alvarez where he lost his WBA and Ring super-middleweight titles via a one-sided unanimous decision. He then moved to the light-heavyweight division and began training under Buddy McGirt.
In the clash of the middleweights, Christopher Ousley (12-0, 9 KO) and Khasan Baysangurov (21-1, 11 KO) will grace the ring.
