    I will be very impressed if he overcomes Usyk cuz right now I just can't see it. I know what he needs to do in theory but that comes with risks of being caught with something and having to expell alot of energy and I'm not sure he's got those boxes ticked at all..

    He works damn hard in the gym and his stamina issues are no secret so I'm sure he's worked at it and it's still poor and his chin isn't the best, especially when he's physically exhausted.

    But he's is one of my favourite fighters so I would love to be proven wrong.

      Sorry, I'm English but just can't warm to the fake, entitled persona of the underwear model. Stay humble dummy.

        I'm telling yall, Joshua just has to go guns blazing, seek and destroy. Get into a mindset that says "I've got 5 rounds to knock this cruiserweight spark out" and just go hell for leather, punch Usyk in the balls, rough him up etc.

          How can he beat Usyk? Only by imposing his physicality and scoring some big body shots early on.

          He cannot outbox Usyk, and remember, Usyk can hurt him and knock him out as well. Joshua was on the verge of being knocked out at the end of their fight.

          But it's heavyweight boxing, and if AJ loses again, he can still fight Fury and it would still attract big numbers.

            Him beating Usyk is far from inconceivable, he was dire in that first fight, his corner was TERRIBLE and he didn't land any punches with any real value, it was the odd jab now and then and the occasional chuffing shot, he did land 1 or 2 half decent body shots.

            Even if he had the exact same terrible game plan but just came in a bit sharper, and the corner gave better instruction, I'd give him probably a 30% chance.

            If he clips Usyk on the chin with a solid right hand I think you'll see Usyk come apart very quickly, Usyk also sustained considerable facial damage in the first fight, so don't be too surprised to see blood start gushing which if it's anywhere near the eyes would spell disaster for Usyk's chances.

            Again I expect Usyk to win, I think Joshua is mentally struggling right now, and I find it hard to see that changing in the short term, but if Joshua chins Usyk in the rematch it wouldn't even be in the top 5 heavyweight upsets in the last couple of years.

            65-35 Usyk, the gap closes is Joshua has a better game plan.

              His stamina issues aren't physical they are mental, hes too nervous in the ring and expends too much mental energy and physical energy just from being so tense and keyed up.

              I watched the Whyte fight back recently and that was fought at a pretty intense pace and was a physical fight but Joshua was confident and handled the pace with no real issues into the later rounds, now he's this ball of nervous energy he gets knackered doing half that pace.

              He's got Lucian Bute syndrome

                Yes, Josh you are angry don't take losses easily like some claim you did.
                You lost as you believed the hype about usyk not being good at heavyweight. Now you will win rematch. Usyk will lose oneday, so why not in the rematch?

                  He has to let his hands go a lot more to have a shot at winning, especially his right. He needs to get Usyk respect and he does that by letting him taste his power.

                    Vacant title a few years down the line is possible
                    Fury and Usyk are quite close to retirement

                      No knock on AJ trainer because he was a dam good fighter himself but bring me in and he’ll beat all these guys with ease! The problem with AJ they don’t have him fighting like a dog and that’s what type of size, power and physical presence he had earlier in his career which allowed him to become champion. As the old folk would say, you have to get back to the basics. I can’t understand the condition issues nor not dictating with physical presence alone. Robert has did very little to develop or make changes and that’s a need at this point. I’m here in Michigan if you want to be like Ali you need a trainer like Angelo and Lou Duva, Georgie Benton etc.
