    Adding more muscle is the last thing AJ needs, especially in his legs. And you don't actually know if you change technique until the opening bell rings and you get jabbed to the kisser. Still going Usyk tko championship rounds.

    If I was in AJ corner I would tell him "Look, son, no pussyfootin around here, you cant win a boxing match, this weasel will smoke ya 8 days a week, peck the shit outta ya all night. You need to break his hip bone you need to smash his arms, rough him up, manhandle him, you are a giant, get the fuck in there and mug this guy. Tie him up, push him, lean on him, hit his hip bones, hit his elbows, rough his ass up, use your weight and power, smash his ass, and do it before the 6th round or you are fucking toast."

    Yep. Thats what I'd tell him.

    Tony Bellew has outlined what Anthony Joshua must do in order to beat Oleksandr Usyk – something that both Britons have failed to do.

    Bellew was stopped by Usyk in the eighth round in 2018, with the Ukrainian becoming the only undisputed cruiserweight champion of the four-belt era with that result.

    Joshua, meanwhile, was outpointed by Usyk in September to lose the WBA, WBO, IBF and IBO heavyweight titles, which he will look to regain in a rematch this August.

    “So many questions surround this fight, and once the first bell goes in just over two months’ time, we’ll start to get some answers,” Bellew wrote in a column for DAZN, the streaming platform with whom Joshua signed a deal last week.

    “Can the Ukranian, a fighter I know very well after sharing the ring with him back in 2018, be as good as he was last year? His brilliant footwork, timing and movement was something else, and by the time Joshua had realised what was in front of him, it was too late for him to make a difference as Usyk was already well ahead on the scorecards.

    “Will Usyk use that same approach, or will he be expecting something a lot different from Joshua this time around? His boxing skills have been enough to see him become a two-weight world champion with the minimum of fuss, but this is the first rematch in his illustrious career and he surely must be expecting an improved version [of Joshua].”

    Joshua has recruited Robert Garcia to his coaching team while promoting Angel Fernandez, with the Olympic gold medalist’s former trainer Rob McCracken stepping away from “AJ”’s set-up ahead of the rematch with Usyk.

    “Since the loss to Usyk, Joshua has made huge changes to his team,” wrote Bellew, who labelled Garcia “legendary”. “Robert McCracken is no longer involved and that could be a big factor, but Joshua is a very smart man and he’ll be fully aware of what he’s doing with his team.

    “All eyes will be on Robert Garcia in the build-up to this fight, and it’ll be interesting to see what changes he can make to Joshua at this stage of his career. He’s one of the smartest coaches around, and he wouldn’t have taken this job if he didn’t believe he could add value. He was a winner as a fighter, he’s a winner as a trainer, and he’ll be fully focused on winning when preparing Joshua for the biggest test of his career.

    “He’ll want AJ to start a lot quicker, because if Usyk is allowed to settle early then you might just see a repeat of the first fight. If Joshua can use his size, speed and power but do it correctly, then he can get Usyk’s attention and let him know he’s in with a different animal from the first fight.

    “That’s the approach Joshua should take: let Usyk know he’s in a tough fight right from the outset.”

    Anthony Joshua vs Oleksandr Usyk was just announced to the public as taking place on the 20th of August 2022 in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia – but now new information has surfaced as to how much the fighters will be paid for this bout, which is a 50/50 split of a simply staggering £65 million.

    The first battle between the two ended in bitter defeat in his hometown of London for AJ, as the Ukrainian picked him apart over 12 rounds and eventually won on a unanimous decision. Joshua will be looking for sweet revenge and will also be looking to reclaim his WBA, IBO and WBO belts in the neutral venue of Saudi Arabia.

    Labelled the ‘Rage on the Red Sea’, this fight has been spoken about for a good while and was originally supposed to be sooner than anticipated.

    The original bout was supposed to be closer to somewhere around June, however, when Russia invaded Ukraine, the champion flew back to his home country and joined his local territorial defence force in Kyiv – pushing the fight back even further.

    Usyk eventually returned home to train for the fight in April, but no date had yet been set.

    That was until the 19th of June 2022, when the world was told a date and a venue – generating mass hype in the boxing world.

    Now we’re receiving more details day by day on the fight, including how much each of the fighters will receive – which as we know is a ridiculous 50/50 split of £65 million.


    According to Michael Benson, Online Boxing Editor for TalkSport – the fighters will be both coming away with a 50/50 split of £65 million… just for showing up for the fight.

    He broadcast this via Twitter where his Tweet read:

    ‘The Oleksandr Usyk vs Anthony Joshua rematch Saudi Arabia site deal is reportedly around $80million (£65million), breaking the previous record they paid for AJ’s 2019 rematch with Andy Ruiz Jr. Fight is a 50/50 financial split between the fighters.’

    As mentioned in the Tweet, this breaks the record for AJ’s previous encounter in Saudi Arabia with Andy Ruiz Jr.

    This is an obscene amount of money, but we’re sure the fighters won’t be complaining.

    Usyk HAS to be anticipating a new strategy from AJ. SO therefore he is already expecting AJ to come out smoking. Therefore Usyk has GOT to already have a good plan for how to deal with that. He better have watched Ali/Foreman a few times, better have watched Roy Jones outclass John Ruiz. Better have watched Conn outfox Louis for most of that fight. Because AJ could pull it out with a single punch. All it takes.

    Usyk looks wider than AJ.

    AJ body language just doesnt work. Seems like he'll be an action movie star in a year or so. I see him out of boxing in 24 months. Doesnt look like he has any desire at all. No fire.

    Deep down I just don't think AJ believes he can win.

    This guy is simply too good and too smart and will know exactly what AJ is going to bring.

    ​Funny how Phil Mickelson is copping all sorts of shit for joining the Saudi sponsored golf series, but it’s all quiet about Usyk and Joshua fighting in the actual country ?

    Usyk is rightly favoured by the bookies at 4/9, Joshua is 13/8. I would advise all flutterers to keep away from this fight, if Joshua is really such a cash cow that he can generate an $80m fight, AND get half the proceeds as a poor loser of the original fight then something is amiss and anything could happen to prevent Joshua losing.

    PS the draw is 22/1

    Ninety percent of rematches are won by the guy with the better boxing skills. No question who that is. I can see Joshua getting to Plan C by about the sixth and getting stopped in the later rounds.
