Heavyweight boxer, Anthony Joshua, has said “I can out-box him” and “out-strength him” ahead of his bout with Oleksandr Usyk.
Joshua will be putting his IBF, WBA and WBO heavyweight championships on the line this Saturday at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Usyk‘s switch from the cruiserweight division, his southpaw stance and his undefeated record makes him a fascinating test of Joshua‘s credentials.
“I can out-box him, of course I can. And I can out-strength him.
“You have to have a bit of aggression, boxing skill, head movement. There is not just one factor that determines a fight.
“Obviously we have our go-to – our strength. I will use my strengths.
“But it’s called a boxing match for a reason. I love the sweet science. I will display my boxing skills, but I won’t make it too complicated in there,” Joshua said.
