Anthony Joshua maps out strategy against Usyk


Anthony Joshua has said he would rather have the brain than defend his World Boxing Association, the International Boxing Federation and the heavyweight division of the World Boxing Organization against Alexander Usyk.

     The 31-year-old British penguin will take on the undefeated former Ukrainian heavyweight champion at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London on September 25.

     "I am looking to be successful in this battle," he said.  “I'm fighting a guy who played 12 rounds. So I said it was stupid to go in there and be bulky and scream with his muscles and need oxygen.

     “I learned to adapt my body to a specific fight.  In this camp, I trained 15 rounds of fighters.

     Joshua (24 wins 1 loss, 22 pounds) claimed he was more focused on a street approach against the cunning of Usyk (18-0, 13 pounds), who had only played two games since the tournament.  heavyweight.
     Joshua said: "My mind is sharpening so I can focus on 12 laps." 

 “It's a brain fight. Know what to expect and how to deal with it.
     "You can be aggressive, push him into a corner and throw everything overboard. Take your time, be smart, and shoot him."

     Usik's defense replaced the long-awaited fight against his British opponent Tyson Fury for the union title.  When the US referee decided that World Boxing Council champion Fury and Deontay Wilder (Deontay Wilder) were vying for the title, the match was thwarted.
