Oleksandr Usyk and Anthony Joshua stopped in London to continue the promotion of their fight on August 20, in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. Previously, they had been in the city where the fight will take place to hold a press conference and now it was the challenger’s turn.
Usyk defeated Joshua in September last year by unanimous decision and took away the WBA super championship and the IBF and WBO belts in a stupendous demonstration of good boxing and ring dominance.
Joshua, a proven warrior, did not hesitate to exercise his right to an immediate rematch and will now face the Ukrainian for the second time in a fight that generates many questions.
Joshua assured that he cannot make the same mistake twice and that is why he has improved what he considers will be key to change history this time.
However, Usyk does not limit himself and assured that he has also worked to be a different boxer in this second fight and give no truce to his opponent.
The Ukrainian champion is one of the best pound-for-pound boxers today and has always proven to be a fighter who adapts to the moment to get victories with his excellent boxing. Joshua will try to integrate tools to his style and counter the champion.
