Oleksandr Usyk Doesn’t Care If Anthony Joshua Changes Fight Plan In Rematch
Oleksandr Usyk is aware that Anthony Joshua may try to fight a tad differently than the first fight.
Both boxers just got their rematch finalized for April 2022. Usyk handed Joshua his career’s second loss when the two heavyweights clashed with IBF, WBA & WBO championships on the line in September.
Judges scored the contest 117-112, 116-112 and 115-113 in the Ukrainian boxer’s favor.
He had entered the fight as a heavy underdog, having lesser height and weight than his British opponent.
Speaking in a recent interview about the rematch, Usyk seemed ready to cement his legacy next year if he goes on to beat WBC champion, Tyson Fury, on the back of another victory against Joshua.
“If I get those four belts, it will be a very loud statement from me,” Usyk said.
Joshua has hired a new coach and he is reportedly training for an aggressive approach for the rematch, looking to get his belts back with a knockout win, but Usyk doesn’t seem worried at all.
“I’m not worried if Joshua is ready to fight. Oleksandr is ready for any kind of fight,” Usyk said.
“Of course, he’s going to change everything. Everything will be new,” Usyk said of Joshua likely changing his style for the rematch.”
