Anthony Joshua’s next fight, the Tokyo Olympics and much more feature on the latest Opening Bell podcast

THE excellent heavyweight matchup between Anthony Joshua and Oleksandr Usyk was officially announced this week. 

Okay, it’s not Tyson Fury-Joshua but, as consolation prizes go, this is a terrific fight in the heavyweight division. And a very risky one for Joshua, as Matt Christie and Alex Steedman explain.

The Tokyo Olympics is set to start and the boxing tournament promises to be fascinating. The country’s leading authority on amateur boxing, Boxing News’ own John Dennen, is on hand to provide an in-depth preview.

The brilliant contest between Jermell Charlo and Brian Castano is reflected upon and the clash featuring Joe Joyce and Carlos Takam looked forward to.

This Week In History focuses on one-third of a classic trilogy: Dennis Andries-Jeff Harding II.

We have bad news, we won’t be around next week due to team holidays but, the good news, you can enjoy our special on York Hall while we’re away.

The special podcast on the home of British boxing is available on July 23.
