'Right-hand blow, uppercut', Anthony Joshua describes how Usyk will be defeated
22 September 2021Anthony Joshua has described how he is that he has primed multiple hurtful punches for Oleksandr Usyk “whether it’s the right hand, the uppercut or the jab”.Joshua and Usyk briefly stepped into the ring on Tuesday night at the public work-outs without giving away too many secrets ahead of Saturday night’s world heavyweight championship fight
Joshua first said about whether he has honed a new slimline physique to match Usyk’s speed, “Why do people think that?”He then toldSky Sportsabout a game-plan: “I’m in there with the ultimate aim of winning. My goal is to either hurt you or beat you until I get the win.
“Whether it’s the right hand, the uppercut or the jab? As long as it leads to a win. I could box on the front foot or the back foot. There is no real strategy except for winning.”Joshua shadow-boxed for a couple of minutes inside the ring, after a smiling Usyk had juggled to entertain the fans. headtopics.com
Previously before he beat Kubrat Pulev, Joshua’s public work-out had consisted of only wrapping his hands for a full 20 minutes before asking cameras and onlookers to depart while he trained.“I’ve worked out today already so I didn’t want to over-work myself,” he said.
Joshua explained about his training to face Usyk, “No pads. Heavy bag work and a lot of sparring. But not really the mitts.“Old school Rocky Marciano style.”Undefeated Usyk, formerly the undisputed cruiserweight champion, is aiming to become just the third boxer to ever add a heavyweight belt to the world titles he won in the division below.
He has already knocked out Tony Bellew and outpointed Derek Chisora. Read more: The Punch Newspapers »
