    Default Joshua v Usyk 25th September - Tottenham Stadium

    Well

    Not the fight we wanted but I'll take this as the next best thing for Joshua.

    Usyk wins this all day long.......if he was nearer to Joshua's size.....but he isn't.

    AJ wins this all day long. Too big, strong and powerful for Usyk who has little to offer but speed and skill. Keeping AJ away for 36 minutes will not happen and he will get caught and stopped.

    This should set up the match with Tyson Fury should he beat Wilder for the 3rd time.

    You will hear noise that Usyk is dangerous for AJ and all wrong. That is all hype and AJ will dispose of him. I do not want you falling for the hype and putting a bet on Usyk.

    Well, the truth is that there is nobody out there for Joshua to profitably fight. The heavyweight division is pretty much a desert outside the top 3 guys, especially in terms of their profile and fan bases. Yes, AJ would probably pack out a UK stadium whoever he fought - but not more than once or twice.

    Usyk is a genuinely excellent fighter, great amateur pedigree. Superb technician, good engine, high ring IQ. But I’m not convinced he punches hard enough to keep Joshua respectful.

    I can see Usyk not being psyched out, I can see him making Joshua look a bit clumsy in the early rounds, I can see him trying to move Joshua around and tire him out …. but I do think that AJ is too big and too strong to not have some success himself. And whatever people say about Joshua the fighter, he has heart and he is a big puncher and a good finisher.

    One hell of a 'default' fight and honestly see it even going in. Where is AJ off this turmoil and mental games with Fury? And we're assuming his sudden switch back to Hulk smash style v Usyk? Mentally I think these two have a bit of a gap. He'll have size all night but can see Usyk also walking him in to some sharpshooting on those big tree trunk legs. What happened the last time AJ went for the kill after hurting faster cleaner hands. Truth is even when boxing fooked itself...for once it landed on it's feet and we have a top tier match up! Good fight. Favor Joshua but wouldn't be shocked to see Usyk paint him moments at a time.

    Bellew had a fair bit of success with Usyk early on and Chisora gave him a tough, close fight that went the distance.
    AJ should come in the same weight he did for the Ruiz rematch, you don't wanna be chasing Usyk around the ring all night carrying a shit load of muscle.
    Bellew had alot of success with the jab so if AJ starts landing that early I think he'll stop Usyk by midway.
    Be interesting to see how Usyk operates now he's bulked up a fair bit, could he bring enough extra power to trouble AJ...?

    If Ruiz can do what he did to Joshua then Usyk surely has a chance
    Good matchup this one

    On paper it seems all AJ.


    Now I know the styles are different from this comparison, yet when it occurred it reminded me-anything is possible. Chrys Byrd over Tua. Yes I know Tua isnt a great boxer, but at the time few saw a former MW staying away from that power all night long.


    It is possible for Usyk to use AJ's bulky frame against him. I just hope he doesn't try to run all night like Haye vs Klitschko.

    6'6 82 inch reach
    6'3 78 inch reach.

    If boxrec is accurrate that isn't too big of a difference on reach.

    According to CompuBox punch stats, Usyk is capable of throwing over 900
    Joshua's last fight with Ruiz he threw just under 400.

    The odds are against Usyk. But then again, we're talking a big guy whose equilibrium got the worst of him in his loss. Usyk Works on looping shots who knows.
    Not sure how hard that shot was compared to what Usyk can do.

    AJ is the favorite, but I wouldn't count Usyk out. Lots of lateral movement. Peppering with the jab. Make AJ extend his arms early on, see if he can get some fatigue going on. Highly unlikely he will land a shot to hurt AJ.


    How well AJ can cut that ring off will determine IMO how far Usyk can last into the fight. If AJ is up on the score cards 1/2 way through hard to see Usyk winning.
    I expect a pretty good chess matchup. No brawling fight.
    All's lost! Everything's going to shit!

    In the old days the undisputed cruiserweight champion would earn his way to face the heavyweight champion by working his way through the division.

    Holyfield beat Tillis (who was one of the few fighters that went the distance with Tyson), Pinklon Thomas, Dokes (fight of the year), Rodriguez, and Alex Stewart. All good, hard, learning fights which built vital experience of Evander and raised his profile in the heavyweight division.

    Maybe the division is weaker than the late 1980’s and Usyk would have lost to these fighters. It would have been in his interest to acclimatise in the division and worked his way up. Usyk is a second division heavyweight with Ruiz and Parker and would have been better to have faced these fighters at this stage.

    Usyk is definately taking the express route to the title! Nifty boxer, but hard to dispute what was just stated. he may have lost to them all.

    Anthony Joshua vs Oleksandr Usyk: Winner must face me next, claims Trevor Bryan

    Anthony Joshua has been called out by boxing rival Trevor Bryan after the American claimed the winner of Joshua's next world title fight against Oleksandr Usyk 'must face me as a mandatory'.

    Joshua, 31, will defend his IBF, WBA (Super) and WBO world heavyweight titles against Usyk, 34, at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London on September 25.

    'The Dream' Bryan, who is promoted by legendary boxing promoter Don King, has won all 21 of his pro fights to date with 15 knockouts and no defeats.

    The unbeaten American, 31, inflicted a crushing knockout on Bermane Stiverne to claim the vacant WBA (Regular) belt at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Florida.

    And now, Bryan has set his sights on facing the winner of Joshua and Usyk's super fight, as he wants to become the undisputed heavyweight champion of the world.

    Speaking to World Boxing News, he said: “I am the “regular” WBA heavyweight champion. I’m ranked number one to defend against the “super” WBA heavyweight champion in Anthony Joshua.

    “I’m so excited to be in a position to fight him.

    “We know that Usyk is ranked number for the WBO heavyweight championship to face Anthony Joshua, but the winner of that fight must face me as a mandatory.”

    However, Joshua's promoter Eddie Hearn is hoping to set up a fight between Bryan and Dillian Whyte, with the pay-per-view event taking place in the United States.

    “I wanna take Dillian Whyte to America for his next fight this summer," Hearn told iFL TV. "Give him some profile over there. Yes [to headline a show], it’s the only way.

    "Go over, MSG, wherever it is, go and make a name over there and then I’d love to make the Wilder fight later in the year.

    "There’s a good fight coming up with Jermaine Franklin and Stephan Shaw. The winner of that’s a good fight. Trevor Bryan is another option for the WBA ‘regular’.

    “There’s plenty of options, I’d like it to be an American.”

    Meanwhile, Tyson Fury is also expected to defend the WBC title in a trilogy fight with Deontay Wilder on October 9, with Bryan stating that he expects The Gypsy King to emerge victorious.

    “Listen, I’m not sure if I consider the whole Tyson Fury situation a pull-out,” he added. “If the man caught Covid, then they reschedule the fight for another date and time.

    "I believe Fury will win this third fight. Overall, Fury is a more technical fighter than Deontay Wilder – in my opinion.”

    Anthony Joshua vs OIeksandr Usyk tickets to cost up to £2000 as Brit defends world titles

    Fans wanting the best seats for Anthony Joshua's title defence against Oleksandr Usyk will have to pay an eye-watering £2,000 for the privilege.

    The Brit will defend his unified heavyweight titles at the new Tottenham Hotspur Stadium against his mandatory challenger on September 25.

    Joshua was pencilled in to face Tyson Fury on August 14 in Saudi Arabia, but an arbitration ruling forced Fury out of the bout in favour of a trilogy with Deontay Wilder.

    But he will instead put his belts on the line against former undisputed cruiserweight ruler Usyk.

    And tickets for Joshua's bout with Usyk will go on sale next Tuesday, or Monday for Matchroom Fight Pass members, and will be priced at £40, £60, £80, £100, £150, £200, £400, £600 and £2000 for VIPs.

    “The date is set and we are fully locked in," said Joshua during an announcement video earlier this month.

    "September 25, Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, I put it all on the line again and it’s time to defend my crown. We are two Olympic Gold medallists who have fought our way to the top and never avoided challenges.

    "The stadium is exceptional, the atmosphere will be electric, I’m honoured to be the first person to fight in such an awe inspiring venue. The stage is set and I am ready to handle business.”

    Joshua is a heavy favourite to beat Usyk, despite the Ukrainian being considered one of the pound-for-pound best fighters in the world.

    Both men are Olympic gold medalists from the 2012 London games, and Usyk was the undisputed cruiserweight champion after winning the World boxing Super Series and beating the likes of Mairis Briedis and Tony Bellew.

    But since moving up to heavyweight, Usyk hasn't looked the world-beater he was at his peak, struggling to get past Derek Chisora in his latest outing last October.

    Usyk was expected to face Joe Joyce in an interim title bout while Joshua faced Fury, but a title bout was ordered by the WBO immediately once that bout fell through.

    Matchroom Boxing are expecting a capacity crowd to attend the event as the UK adjusts to life without coronavirus restrictions following the success of last week's reopening.

    This will also be the first boxing event to take place on the new pitch at the North London stadium, with Spurs chairman Daniel Levy admitting that he is delighted to finally host a fight of this calibre after a long delay during the pandemic.

    “This is a huge occasion for Tottenham Hotspur Stadium," Levy said ahead of hosting the contest.

    " Anthony Joshua is an icon in the world of sport and to have him fight here in London N17, against a top opponent in Oleksandr Usyk, will be amazing for the area of Tottenham.

    "This event will once again showcase the stadium’s ability to take the hosting of world-class sporting occasions to the next level – we cannot wait for September 25.”
