Legendary boxer, Mike Tyson believes that heavyweight boxer, Oleksandr Usyk will defeat Anthony Joshua in their forthcoming rematch taking place on August 20 in Saudi Arabia.
The two-time heavyweight champion is set to face the Ukrainian for a second time live on talkSPORT on Saturday as he attempts to win back the WBA, IBF, and WBO heavyweight world titles that he lost to him last year September.
Many boxing analysts and fans have posited that the rematch will be very difficult for Anthony Joshua to win considering his opponent.
Usyk won the first fight impressively across all rounds, but Joshua has changed his entire training team to try and reverse the result.
“It’s gonna be hard to beat him,” Tyson said on Instagram live.
Mike Tyson advised Joshua to deal with Usyk’s jab and also keep the pressure on if he hopes to come away with a favourable result.
“It’s gonna be hard to beat Usyk because he’s fast and he outpunched Joshua with his jab. Joshua has to learn to deal with his jab.
“He’s too fast for Joshua. Joshua has to put a lot of pressure on him and keep it on him all night.
“He’s a powerful puncher, but he’s not as accurate – you’ve gotta be accurate against a guy like that.
“Because he moves so much, the jab is educated and he just outsmarts the guy.”
The much-anticipated rematch between Anthony Joshua and Oleksandr Usyk will take place in Saudi Arabia on August 20, 2022.
