  • Comments Thread For: Bellew: Usyk is 'Best Natural Boxer' That Joshua Will Ever Face

    Former two division champion Tony Bellew believes Oleksandr Usyk is the "best boxer" that Anthony Joshua is ever going to face in his career. Joshua will defend his WBO, IBF, WBA, IBO titles against Usyk, a mandatory challenger, on September 25 at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

    Arguably, yes.

    But he isn't a natural super-heavyweight. These natural heavyweights have pushed the boundary up higher and higher where 14st 4lb is a tiny heavyweight nowadays. I mean, there is a reason that Heavyweights shouldn't be in the P4P rankings because we all know, most of the time, its about raw power and not finesse.

    I like Usyk but I can see him losing here, quite early....and even though I'm a Joshua fan, I think we are going to see a controversial referee stoppage.

      Maybe

      although Fury can do a lot more, if they ever fight

      Can Usyk switch hit? No. Can he fight inside? No.

      Fury can fight inside, outside, forwards, backwards, orthodox, southpaw, you name it. It’s proven.

      Usyk might look a bit more fluid because he’s a smaller man but he still very much has the holes in his game that a lot of top amateurs do, I.e no inside game at all.

      Fury has more strings to his bow in terms of overall skill set, and that’ll be the case should AJ fight him.

      I still think Usyk beats AJ anyway.

          Negative, that distinction falls to Fury, who is far better with foot and head movement.

            I´ll have to disagree a bit, Usyk has better wheels but Fury´s upper body/head movement more than make up for that. When a 6´9 boxer leans back you need to throw rocks to hit him.

              People are under the mistaken impression that Usyk is a heavyweight Lomachenko.

              He's not.

                Maybe Bellowww can show AJ how to spread them legs for Usyk.

                  Fury is a better natural boxer imho. Usyk is very good, very technical, but he's not "natural" in the sense that he's like a very intelligent student who studies a lot, while Fury is a gifted, but unpredictable, natural genius.

                    This is a bigger threat to Joshua than people are anticipating. The only advantages that Joshua has over Usyk is size & power. Every other aspect of boxing skill and most importantly heart, goes to Usyk. Well I also guess that Joshua has an advantage being the A side, so judges may help him out if the fight goes 12.
