Re: Joshua v Usyk 25th September - Tottenham Stadium
Yeah this is simmering up nicely. It's taken a while to come out of the AJ Fury shadows, but now that the dust has settled and everyone has had time to reboot, it's as good as it gets, a really top quality fight.
I't hard to see past a Joshua win, he holds so many aces. Size, Strength, power. Usyk is the better pure boxer and better thinker but Joshua is way better than anything Usyk has faced before. The problem for Usyk is that everyone who has had success against Joshua has done so with power, they've met fire with fire. Big powerful hookers and in Wlad's case the dynamite right hand. I'm not sure Usyk has the single punch to hurt Joshua enough.
He will no doubt find a home for the left cross as a counter or lead punch, but then he did against an amateur Joe Joyce almost at will and that wasn't the blow out some people would have you believe. Joshua will be hitting him harder, faster and more often than anyone else.
When God said to the both of us "Which one of you wants to be Sugar Ray?" I guess I didnt raise my hand fast enough
