Eddie Hearn believes Anthony Joshua will KO Oleksandr Usyk

Fiery British boxing promoter Eddie Hearn recently opened up about the upcoming rematch between heavyweight champion Oleksandr Usyk and Anthony Joshua. During an interview with iFL TV, Hearn said the former Great Britain champion puts the finishing touches to his pre-fight preparation.

“AJ is over in Saudi, is in great shape, great state of mind, ready to go. Two weeks on Saturday I think he’ll do the business.”

The former heavyweight champion lost his titles while taking on former cruiserweight champion Oleksandr Usyk. The duo is set for a rematch that will take place on August 20th. Their fight, billed as “The Rage on the Red Sea,” will be Anthony Joshua’s attempt to regain his belts.

In his interview, Hearns added:

“I think AJ will knock Usyk out. I think it’s going to be a very tough fight – I think Usyk is great pound for pound. I think AJ will do it.”

Anthony Joshua and his preparation for the Usyk rematch

Anthony Joshua is sparing no expense in his preparations to regain his belts. He is currently based in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, where he has built a home gym. Pictures posted by people close to ‘AJ’ show an elaborate set up. The gym is stocked with a sparring, cardio machines, weights, heavy bags and everything the former champion might need for the fight.

Reports have also surfaced that Joshua uses about 8 sparring men to train for the fight. Express Sports reports that the boxer’s camp includes a mix of old and new faces.

News about his opponent Oleksandr Usyk sounded a little different. It’s said the boxer sent his sparring partners home because they couldn’t keep up with him.

As the fight date approaches, Usyk’s preparation intensifies. Given the form he’s in, it’s safe to assume Usyk is on fire and ready to take on “AJ” again.

With just two weeks to go, boxing fans couldn’t be more excited.
