Anthony Joshua vs Oleksandr Usyk: Carl Frampton explains what AJ must do to win high-stakes rematch | Boxing News

Oleksandr Usyk is the frontrunner to take on Anthony Joshua in an epic rematch on August 20, streamed live at Sky Sports Box Office. However, the fight will be very different from their first encounter, and boxing experts warn against taking former heavyweight champion Joshua lightly.

“Many say Usyk [wins] It will be difficult to go against them. It looks like a tough fight for both sides, but I know what Joshua has to do to defeat Usik – use his size and strength and be a bit of a bully.” Two-division world champion Carl Frampton said. sky sports.

“But what worries me is that I don’t think Joshua can do it for very long. I can’t.

“But I think he has to come close. He has to use rough tactics and impose his strength. It’s a bit like that. [Wladimir] Klitschko used to be able to punch, push and exhaust people. But is it possible? ”

Usyk can also fully adapt to the second fight.

“Usik is obviously a very clever fighter. I think he expects a different type of approach from Joshua this time around because he has to,” Frampton said.

“You put a gun to my head [to make a prediction], I say Usyk will win the battle. But I don’t think it’s going to be easy, as many people do. ”

Either way, Frampton expects to finish inside the distance.

“Because of what AJ had to do in the fight, he was exhausted at the end of the last fight and injured at the end of the last fight, so I think he should be kicked out. In the case of Usyk, I think he’ll probably be stopped late,” he said.

“I hope I’m wrong.”
