The Brit spoke about the Ukrainian’s title fight with Joshua.
Top British super heavyweight Joe Joyce shared his expectations for the rematch between WBA/WBO/IBF world champion Oleksandr Usyk and Anthony Joshua.
According to the British boxer, the Ukrainian is in amazing shape, comparing him to Mike Tyson.
“Usyk looks dangerous. Alexander has bulked up and dodges punches like Mike Tyson. That’s why Usyk has improved his game. Of course, Joshua has also raised his level, so I think it’s going to be a heated fight. I can’t wait for him to see the result.” .
Joyce added that Joshua has a puncher’s chance.
“Usyk is on fire and he’s already beaten Joshua. Things don’t look good for Anthony, but he has a puncher’s chance. Let’s see what he’s been working on with his new team and what he’s changed. If Anthony comes out more aggressive, it’s going to be a fiery fight . It will be exciting, I’m really looking forward to the fight,” said Joyce in an interview with the YouTube channel SecondsOut.
We will remind, the Usyk-Joshua rematch will take place on August 20 in Jeddah (Saudi Arabia) at the arena Super Dome.
In the first match, which took place in September 2021, the Ukrainian defeated the Briton by unanimous decision of the judges, winning the championship belts.
