Saturday PUNCHreports.Joshua has recorded 24 wins and a loss in 25 bouts since he turned professional in 2013.That loss came in the form of a massive upset when Andy Ruiz Jr. claimed an against-all-odds victory at Madison Square Garden in New York in 2019.

Incidentally, the fight against Usyk will be Joshua’s third fight on English soil in the last three years after his wins over Alexander Povetkin at the Tottenham Hotspur stadium in 2018 and Wladimir Klitschko.Usyk will be the second Ukrainian boxer, Joshua will be hoping to defeat after he technically knocked out Klitschko at the Wembley Stadium in London, England in 2017. headtopics.com

The 34-year-old Ukrainian on his part has won all his 18 professional fights and Joshua will be the third British fighter that Usyk will face after beating Tony Bellew in November 2018 and Derek Chisora in October 2020.Joshua and Usyk each won Olympic gold medals at London 2012. Since then, while Joshua has become a two-time heavyweight champion, Usyk won the undisputed cruiserweight title.

Speaking ahead of the bout, veteran boxing coach Joe Mensah said Joshua’s 11th consecutive world title fight won’t go easy for him.“Joshua has learnt his lessons from underrating people from his defeats to Andy Ruiz.Jnr,” Mensah said.“Usky has showed in the cruiserweight division that he is a great boxer and that is why Joshua has not shown any form of complacency.
