And what are the latest odds for Joshua Usyk II?

AJ will try and win back his IBF, WBA (Super) and WBO and IBO belts on Saturday against the undefeated Usyk, a former cruiserweight who is 19-0 in his professional career.

Joshua was heavy odds-on-favourite when the two last met but the tables have turned since the defeat. Usyk is now overwhelming favourite with best odds of 7/12 to win, while AJ can be found at the best price of 19/10 (worst odds 8/5).

Last time out, Usyk showed his boxing prowess by dominating the British boxer for most of the 12 rounds and winning by unanimous points decision. If you fancy Usyk to do that again you can back him at 2/1. The fight is a best price 24/19 to go the distance (worst price 19/20).
