Anthony Joshua’s first defence of his IBF World Heavyweight title will be shown LIVE on Sky Sports Box Office this evening.
He’ll take on the unbeaten American Dominic Breazeale at The O2 in London, where Joshua returns for the first time since his resounding second-round win over Charles Martin to claim the IBF heavyweight world title in April.
The Olympic gold medallist turned professional just two and a half years ago making him the fifth quickest world heavyweight champion.
Challenger Dominic Breazeale, from Anaheim CA, heads to The O2 undefeated in 17 fights. Like Joshua, Breazeale made his name in the amateur ranks and was the number one rated U.S. amateur boxer in the super heavyweight division.
The undercard includes George Groves v Martin Murray (WBA super-middleweight title eliminator), Chris Eubank Jr v Tom Doran (British middleweight title), and Dillian Whyte v Cyril Leonet (eight rounds heavyweight).
