ANTHONY JOSHUA’S fight with Oleksandr Usyk will sell 1.2million Pay-Per-View buys.
That is according to promoter Eddie Hearn, who expects Joshua’s clash with Usyk to be the fourth biggest selling PPV in UK history.
Hearn told DAZN that records will be broken once the two heavyweights meet in the ring at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
If the promoter’s expectations come to fruition then they are going to beat Wladimir Klitschko and David Haye’s clash from 2011.
That means they will only make less than AJ’s previous fights with Joseph Parker, Klitschko and Andy Ruiz Jr.
Joshua’s WBA, WBO, IBF and IBO belts will all be on the line in front of an estimated 68,000 fans.
This is expected to mark the highest British boxing attendance since the Brit beat Alexander Povetkin at Wembley Stadium in 2018.
Joshua said: “Let’s go out there, have fun and put on a great show.

“I’m getting better as a fighter so why shouldn’t I be excited? It’s the best times of my life. Everyone is going to be happy on Saturday.”

Usyk also believes that he and Joshua will make history once the bell rings and they lock horns.
The Ukrainian bruiser said: “Every fight makes history and me and Anthony will make another step in history.
“It will be something people will be talking about, will remember and will be watching on television.”
