Anthony Joshua only has a 'puncher's chance' of beating Usyk in rematch says Tyson Fury promoter Frank Warren | The Sun

FRANK WARREN reckons Anthony Joshua has just a "puncher's chance" of revenge against Oleksandr Usyk.

AJ bids to reclaim his WBA, IBF and WBO heavyweight titles after Ukrainian Usyk easily dethroned the Brit on points last September.


And Tyson Fury's promoter Warren believes Joshua's only hope is to outmuscle the stylist enough to land a killer shot.

He said: "I give him a real good puncher's chance.

"He's got to go out there and impose himself. He ain't gonna outbox him. He ain't gonna get on his backfoot and outbox him.

"He's got to put Usyk on his backfoot. Can he do that? I don't think he can."

Joshua paid dearly for a disastrous attempt 10 months ago to take on southpaw class-act Usyk at his own tactical game.

And fellow ex-heavyweight king David Haye believes the 32-year-old might retire if he suffers his third pro defeat in Saudi Arabia on August 20.

AJ recently signed a long-term deal with sports streaming service DAZN.

But Haye said: “If he doesn’t win, I am not sure he wants to be in a sport where he knows he is not the best.

“He got out-hustled by someone he knows he can beat and if – he does everything right and Usyk still beats him – I don’t know if there is anything else for him to do in the sport.

“He is such a winner that I don’t know what he does next if he loses again.

“He believes he has all the physical abilities to beat Usyk, so do I, so with the right plan he can get the victory.”
