Alexander Usyk and Antony Joshua and their fight scheduled for September 25 at the Tottenham stadium have become one of the most debated topics in the boxing field. Some claim their chances are even as both have aces up in their sleeves and unique skills that may appear to be the game-changers. However, some experts severely doubt Usyk is capable of defeating Joshua: the list of his previously beaten opponents is impressive enough to leave a small chance for Usyk to avoid sharing the same destiny as Joseph Parker and Carlos Takam.
According to Joshua himself, he regards Usyk as a decent and strong opponent who is capable of over-fatiguing his rivals. The fighter is assured the fight is going to be more about psychological skills and careful planning rather than a demonstration of the impact force.
Overall, both combatants have pretty equal chances to win, but it is doubtful that we will witness any devastating knockouts and quick finish of the fight.
Usyk’s manager implicitly confirmed Joshua’s suspicions by claiming Alexander was ‘500 percent confident in his victory as he knows what he should do to win perfectly well’.
