We don’t exactly when the much-hyped rematch between Anthony Joshua and Oleksandr Usyk will take place but a new news report in SkyNews mentions the venue as Jeddah’s Super Dome.
According to SkyNews, the Jeddah Super Dome’s administration has indicated that it is the favored location for the megafight.

A quick recap, Joshua was soundly defeated by Usyk via unanimous decision (24-2, 22 KOs) back in September. Since then Joshua has found a new trainer and will have a go at becoming a three-time champion.
Coming to the venue, the Jeddah Super Dome is the world’s largest geodesic dome without pillars and can hold up to 40,000 people.
Back in February, the fancy venue hosted the WWE Elimination Chamber.
