Are you ready to rumble? The excitement is building as the world heavyweight title rematch between Anthony Joshua and Oleksandr Usyk is coming to Jeddah. The international sports event is being hailed as The Rage on the Red Sea, and takes place at King Abdullah Sports City Arena on 20 August.

Anthony is a two-time heavyweight champion, and Oleksandr Usyk holds WBA, IBF and WBO heavyweight titles. The last match between the two took place in September 2021 at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, London. The much-loved British boxer, Anthony, lost his title as a heavyweight champion. Despite Ukrainian Oleksandr having a unanimous win, Anthony’s team activated a rematch clause.

Prince Khalid bin Abdulaziz, chairman of SCEE, stated, “We’re one month from one of the biggest sporting moments in our country and today, we invite fans from Saudi Arabia and around the world to witness history. The Rage on the Red Sea headlines a dramatic night of world championship boxing and an evening to remember forever. We’re proud to secure this event for our country as it continues its incredible transformation, inspiring our people to participate in sport and lead happy and healthy lives.”

The kingdom is no stranger to hosting international sports event, as it previously held the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix. Plus, King Abdullah Sports City Arena has hosted sporting events across football, WWE and boxing.
