Recent News about Oleksandr Usyk

Usyk is likely to defend his title against AJ in the rematch. They will square off in the first quarter of the coming year, with Joshua hungry to get his titles back from the Olympian.

Although most boxing pundits have predicted that Usyk will leave the fight 2-0. Experts feel that the 34-year-old has got more tools than his British opponent and he will not let Joshua trouble him, just like the first bout went down.

Tyson Fury and his father John Fury feel the same. Tyson had even asked Joshua to pull out from the fight so that he can have a shot at fighting for the WBC crown against him or else there would never be a build-up for a potential Tyson vs Joshua fight if AJ loses to Usyk again.

Usyk too has affirmed that he is open to fighting the Gypsy King first and giving Joshua his rematch later. In a nutshell, the Cat is set to make a lot of money and build a legacy for himself in the process.
