IBF-WBA Super-WBO heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua puts his titles on the line this Saturday in front of 60,000 spectators in Tottenham Stadium in London against Oleksandr Usyk. This fight between two Olympic champions 2012 will be to follow from 11 pm on the channel Channel. At the weigh-in, he posted more than eight kilos more. He is seven centimeters taller under the board and his reach measures ten more. He has a power and a knockout ability that his opponent does not have. If the fight between Anthony Joshua and Oleksandr Usyk amounted to a physical contest, the former would win before even entering the ring. Except, as you can read here, Usyk is a real threat to Joshua.
The left-hander in the heavyweight since 2019, where an injury and then the health crisis prevented him from making more than two fights, the first against American Chazz Witherspoon in October 2019, the second against the Briton Dereck Chisora a year later, for two victories by retirement and unanimous decision.
Performances that did not reassure observers about his ability to emulate the illustrious Evander Holyfield in his conquest of the queen category after the light heavyweight. This does not prevent it from being a real threat for Anthony Joshua.
