Usyk outclassed and outpunched Anthony Joshua to secure a unanimous decision victory and win the titles last year. A world championship and Olympic gold medalist as an amateur, Usyk became one of only three boxers to unify the Cruiserweight world titles and become world Heavyweight champion. The southpaw is currently ranked the world’s second best active boxer, pound for pound, by The Ring. At the start of the Russia-Ukraine war, Usyk traveled to Ukraine and joined the country’s Territorial Defense Forces.

He looks a lot bigger. I mean he was telling me that he’s put on an extra 15 kilos since he last fought AJ. So, we’re going to see how much strength he’s going to be having. He looks a full-on natural heavyweight. He is big and looks very strong. He nowhere near looked like a cruiserweight. He looked like a nice full-blown-up heavyweight.
