    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

    Joe Joyce has predicted that Anthony Joshua would be a harder fight for him than Oleksandr Usyk, and expects Joshua to win the clash in September.

    The 'Juggernaut' secured his status as mandatory challenger for Joshua's current WBO heavyweight title with stoppage victory over Carlos Takam at the SSE Arena, Wembley last weekend.

    And the British heavyweight believes that Joshua could pose a sterner test in a mandatory shot at the belts, but admits he still has 'respect' for the Ukrainian.

    "I would be more surprised if Usyk beats Joshua than if Joshua beats Usyk,” Joyce told Ring Magazine.

    "We will see, I’m sure the belts will shake loose, they won’t be able to keep all the belts because they’ll have mandatory challengers and I’ll be mandatory challenger if AJ beats Usyk.

    "And he’ll have a choice whether to fight me or vacate but the best scenario is I fight Joshua for all the belts.

    “Usyk’s a great fighter, a gold medalist, undisputed at cruiserweight and moved up to heavyweight and he’s got quite a resume.

    "Ideally, I would have fought him while Joshua-Fury took place, but now Joshua is fighting Usyk, if he manages to win I’ll fight him again as a rematch.”

    Joyce has regularly sparred with Joshua, and came close to emulating the Olympic gold medal achievement of 'AJ' when he fought to a silver medal at the 2016 Rio Olympic Games losing on a narrow split decision to Tony Yoka.

    He has since gone on to claim the WBC Silver, WBO International and Commonwealth heavyweight titles, which he successfully defended with his victory over Takam.

    And the 35-year-old has revealed he is 'not bothered' with criticism that came his way following his difficult start against Takam, labelling it as just 'talk'.

    “I’m not too bothered, people can talk," Joyce continued.

    "But until they’ve won an Olympic medal or won the belts I have in such a short amount of time, they can keep chatting whatever they want.

    “He’s (Takam) a good fighter, experienced, he’s been in with the best and he comes to win but I wasn’t going to let that happen.

    "I had plenty more in the tank to take him down but I saw the opportunity and I wasn’t going to stop throwing punches until they stopped it."

    Joyce now looks set to jump the queue and gain a mandatory shot at the winner of Joshua vs Usyk, but the two-time world champion has promised to 'drop his belts' if required to gain a fight with domestic rival Tyson Fury.

    This could then lead to Joyce being instated as WBO world champion, but in the meantime ahead of the shot he has been linked with the likes of Derek Chisora and Joseph Parker.

    Tickets for the clash between Joshua and Usyk are set to cost up to £2000, as they go on sale this week to see the action at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
