Anthony Joshua vs Oleksandr Usyk LIVE RESULTS: Campbell Hatton controversy – UK start time, TV, live stream, undercard


ANTHONY JOSHUA defends his world heavyweight titles against unbeaten Oleksandr Usyk in a HUGE showdown tonight.

AJ, 31, saw talks for his big fight with Tyson Fury collapse and now takes on unbeaten Usyk instead at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

BETTING SPECIAL – GET JOSHUA TO WIN IN ROUNDS 1-6 AT 60/1 OR ANYTIME AT 25/1

It is nearly a year since Usyk beat Derek Chisora and nine months since Joshua beat Kubrat Pulev at the SSE Arena and there are more than just belts on the line.

With a potential British mega fight against Fury in the pipeline – after the Gypsy King faces Deontay Wilder – this will be an indicator of form and pedigree for an undisputed crown.

    Many feeling young Campbell has got away with one here, as many have before.

  • STATEMENT

    Well, what a way to welcome yourself to the light-heavyweight division.

    Smith knocked out a man the current WBA 175lbs champ Dimitry Bivol couldn’t put away in 12 rounds of action.

    Up next – Campbell Hatton.

     

  • CALLUM SMITH v LENIN CASTILLO

    Massive applause as Castillo is stretchered out of the ring and likely to medical attention.

    Smith is now announced as the winner in the ring.

  • CALLUM SMITH v LENIN CASTILLO

    Heading into round two now…

  • SMITH LAST TIME OUT

    Mundo didn’t look too hot last time he was in the middle of the ring, as he was easily outpointed by pound-for-pound king Canelo Alvarez last December.

    Smith lost his WBA 168lb title to the Mexican on a forgettable night in Texas, but now he’s back at light-heavyweight.

    Castillo, who lost a decision to WBA champ at 175lbs Dimitry Bivol in 2019, should prove a decent measuring stick opponent for Smith.

    Ring walks up next.

  • MAXIM PRODAN v FLORIAN MARKU

    Judges score the bout 99-91 to Prodan, 97-93 to Marku and 96-94… your winner by split-decision Florian Marku!

    The crowd is on its feet here at Tottenham’s stadium, it was his consistent jab which won over the judges.

    Others will argue Prodan’s aggression and activity was the more affective. Either way, a rematch isn’t needed or wanted.

     

  • MAXIM PRODAN v FLORIAN MARKU – ROUND 10

    Marku urged on by his Albanian fanbase but it’s Prodan who is coming on strong down the stretch.

    Both fighters egg each other on in close with the final minute approaching but again neither wants to commit.

    After ten tentative rounds, of Marku on the outside pumping his jab out and Prodan coming forward with occasional bursts, we go to the cards…

  • MAXIM PRODAN v FLORIAN MARKU – ROUND 8

    Marku starts the round pumping out his jab which Prodan struggled to get out the way of.

    Neither man are really risking it for biscuit with a slight stand off as the round ends. Could be hard to score this one…

    Prodan getting in a groove now landing the jab, it sparks a response from Marku who spent the first half of the round asleep.

    Right hand lands for Prodan to close out the round as we head into the final three rounds.
