In other words, this is a no-win fight regardless of how great Usyk has been up to this point. Great as in undefeated. And The cleaner of Cruisers.
Usyk wins he might not get the credit he deserves as well. Aj will be seen as being exposed, but I am not so sure a loss to Usyk should mean its over for Josh.
Personally I think it is a great matchup. AJ the big dude had to box to beat a fat guy, so what is the plan to beat a small in shape guy whose best asset is to think as well? Considering he's at 221bs there really isnt a size difference that we haven't seen before. We might see some huffing and puffing if this goes past 8 or 9 rounds.
I like both fighters, may the the guy who can uplift boxing win!
How he is really just a model posing as a boxer.
I called it a great matchup because of how the big guy wants to be a boxer and not a brute force of nature...who can ALSO box. (Benefits USYK!)
I haven't seen the fight yet- but one thing I noticed in his career (Usyk) is how his left hand is like a rubberband...soon as he throws it out he snaps it back in to guard that face.
Was that left guard on display?
I also pointed out that the size difference was not a major issue- since Usyk came in at 221.
The weigh in also proves my point from day one on AJ- he is a nice guy who is strong and can box.
But he does NOT have the (DOG) in him. No nastiness. So unless one is a masterful technician (Mayweather) or a mini tornado (Pac) -when the doodoo hits the fan...and skills wont get it done...the DOG has to come out.
AJ is a big man with the bite of a poodle.
That would be too funny if we get Wilder/Usyk LOL!!!!!
I'd prefer to see Fury vs Usyk. I can see The Ukranian humiliating Wilder all night long.
All's lost! Everything's going to shit!
