As the Ukrainian advances to an undisputed historic bout with WBC belt holder Tyson Fury – Anthony Joshua is set to rally in the division to try to get back to the top.
Usyk, obviously quite fond of ‘AJ’, said Guard that the British boxer should not be disappointed about losing and think that the chance to win will return.
“Joshua shouldn’t be upset about losing to me. He just needs to keep working because he’s a very cool fighter and a good man. He will have a chance to be a world heavyweight champion again.”
Usyk has outdone Joshua on both occasions – once in the UK and once in Saudi Arabia – to prove his worth in the weight class he recently entered. Many felt that Joshua overestimated himself in the second fight, and the loss was more a result of the elite opposition than anything else.
