Saudi Arabia is ready for the showdown between World Boxing Association (WBA) Super Heavyweight Super Champion Oleksandr Usyk and Anthony Joshua, which will take place at the Superdome in Jeddah on Saturday.
The fight will also have at stake the IBF and WBO belts, all in possession of the Ukrainian, and as the day of the bout approaches, the atmosphere is taking more and more shape.
The public training was on Tuesday, in which both had training sessions in front of the press and the fans that crowded the place, and they were present at the last press conference before the fight on Wednesday.
Usyk assured that he expects a great fight and that he knows that his opponent will bring new things, but he feels confident and has also worked to correct things and repeat the history of the first fight.
For his part, Joshua only thinks of one possibility and it is to regain his belts: “We have to win. I like the pressure, I have goals I want to achieve!”.
Now all that’s left is the weigh-in ceremony, the last step before Saturday’s big fight.
