World Heavy Weight Champion Anthony Joshua’s title defence against Oleksandr Usyk will take place at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on 25 September this year.
The thirty one year old Joshua will risk his IBF, WBA and WBO belts against the Ukrainian, who is his mandatory challenger.
Usyk, 34, has not fought for a title as a heavyweight but held all four belts a division lower at cruiserweight.
Joshua was ordered to defend his WBO title after the collapse of his bout with fellow Briton Tyson Fury.
“The venue is exceptional, the atmosphere will be electric, I’m honoured to be the first person to fight in such an awe-inspiring venue. The stage is set and I am ready to handle business.”
Despite months of negotiations a fight between Joshua and WBC world champion Fury for all four belts failed to materialise.
Former undisputed world cruiserweight champion Usyk has 18 wins from 18 bouts.
