Anthony Joshua Signs Two-Fight Deal To Compete At Wembley Stadium

Nigerian-born British boxer Anthony Joshua has signed a two-fight deal with the National Stadium in England (Wembley Stadium).

The 28-year-old heavyweight champion has signed a contract to fight at the Wembley Stadium on two occasions (September 22 and April 13).

Anthony Joshua ‘AJ’ currently holds the WBA, IBF and WBO belts.

His last fight at the Wembley Stadium was in April 2017 when he defeated retired Ukrainian boxer Wladimir Klitschko.

Since then, AJ has fought twice at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff, Wales.

On his new deal to fight at the Wembley Stadium, Joshua said: “Being north London born and raised, it is in my blood. Wembley just added a fourth lion to the den.”

“The opportunity to fight in such an iconic stadium is normally a once-in-a-career opportunity, so to be given the chance to fight there again is amazing.” He added.

Anthony Joshua will likely face WBA’s mandatory challenger Alexander Povetkin on September 22 ahead of a potential fight with WBC world champion Deontay Wilder in April in what would be a unification fight.
