Joshua and Usyk held open workouts

London is experiencing an atmosphere of party and boxing in the Anthony Joshua vs. Oleksandr Usyk fight week. The countdown to Saturday’s fight for the World Boxing Association (WBA) Heavyweight Super Championship has already started, and on Tuesday both boxers held media workouts.

As usual, the fighters posed for the cameras, did a gentle workout to fine-tune details before the fight, and had a bit of fun as the journalists tried to capture everything that was happening.

They both looked smiling and relaxed and expressed their confidence to get the victory and give a good show to the fans around the world who will have their attention focused on the fight, which will also put the IBF and WBO belts at stake.

Joshua, who was doubly overjoyed after signing a contract with Matchroom earlier in the morning, came to media workout to make some moves and share some of his routine.

Usyk also played with a small ball and sweat a bit with his characteristic charisma, eager to show that he can be a heavyweight champion.

Champion Joshua comes into the fight with 24 wins, 1 loss, and 22 KOs, while Usyk is undefeated in 18 fights, with 13 KOs.
