UK pay-television broadcaster Sky has reportedly acquired rights to Anthony Joshua’s upcoming rematch against Oleksandr Usyk, which will take place in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.

Sky has bid over £23.3m (€27.5m/$27.8m) for the rights to show the match on its Box Office pay-per-view service, according to The Telegraph. Sky is said to have emerged victorious in a bidding war with subscription broadcaster DAZN, which last month acquired exclusive global media rights to all events featuring former world heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua.
