Both fighters will likely have crossed paths at the London Olympics back in 2012, which saw Joshua win gold in the super-heavyweight division, while Usyk triumphed in the heavyweight category.
Having been imperious at cruiserweight, Usyk is now looking to dominate at heavyweight and establish himself as one of the top fighters at 265 lbs with an unbeaten professional career of 18 fights.
Joshua’s IBF, WBA (Super), WBO and IBO titles are all up for grabs tonight but the Watford-born boxer holds the advantage in terms of height and reach, as well as experience at this level.
The stakes are high, with the spoils for tonight’s winner almost certain to be an undisputed title fight against the victor of the upcoming Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder clash.
