WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury has come to say he is predicting against Anthony Joshua in his fight with Oleksandr Usyk. Fury said the Usyk would knock Anthony Joshua out, and he is sure of that. The match will be on Saturday night in London.
Joshua’s IBF, IBO, WBA, and WBO titles will be on the line when he goes in to fight with the Ukrainian challenger Usyk inside the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. And speaking with reporters, Tyson Fury says he envisions Joshua (24-1, 22 KOs) having many difficulties dealing with the technically sound southpaw.

Fury does not believe Joshua 6-feet-6, 245-pound stamina, as well as his ability to out-think the intelligent, skilful Usyk. According to Fury, he said: “I expect AJ to come out trying to box a bit more because of this new way he boxes now and uses his jab.”
Tyson Fury also said: “And he knows he doesn’t have the stamina to take a fight to somebody under sustained pressure, and keep that up, because he gasses after about three rounds.” “And then he needs to take three or four rounds off. So, he wouldn’t be able to do that against Usyk because Usyk will be on him all the time, making him fight.”
“So, I expect it to be awkward, maybe a bit of a chess match for a few rounds. And I expect AJ to run out of ideas. If he doesn’t land on him early and get him out of there with big punches, then I see it being a tough night for AJ and maybe even a stoppage loss.”
The boxer also said he, however, sees the fight as a 50-50 fight. He said he is not into betting, and so he does not believe he can make a lot of reasons why he thinks Anthony Joshua will lose the fight and Usyk will win. One is he’s a big southpaw, and he’s awkward and, you know, a slick boxer.
He also believes Usyk punches harder than what people credit him for. Fury concluded by saying AJ is a one-trick pony.
