Anthony Joshua is set to make his return to the boxing ring soon – here are full details of his next fight.

After suffering back-to-back defeats against Oleksandr Usyk, Joshua stopped the rot as he edged out Jermaine Franklin on a unanimous points decision in April.

And he will be eager to build on that as he looks to re-establish himself in the heavyweight division.

When is Anthony Joshua’s next fight?

Joshua will fight Robert Helenius at the O2 Arena in London on August 12.

Joshua was due to face Dillian Whyte at the same venue on the same date. But the heavyweight rematch was cancelled due to the latter failing a drugs test.

Helenius subsequently stepped in with less than a week’s notice, and is fresh from a third-round TKO win over Mika Mielonen in his native Finland last weekend.

Although, the 6ft 6in fighter has never challenged for a world title, while his last big bout culminated in a first-round KO by Deontay Wilder.
