According to ‘The Eraser’, the focus of the camp has been on mixing aggression with composure. ‘AJ’ was criticised for not using his size and strength more in the first fight back in September as he dropped his WBA (super), WBO, and IBF heavyweight titles to the Ukrainian at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

In September, ‘AJ’ dropped his WBA (super), IBF, and WBO heavyweight titles to the Ukrainian on home soil. At the time, he was criticised massively for not using his size and strength enough and is expected to adopt a more aggressive approach for their second bout.

The last time Oleksandr Usyk and Anthony Joshua were together in London the former had just handed the latter a punishing 12-round defeat at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium to dethrone the champion and take the IBF, WBA and WBO heavyweight titles.

Fury also said that anything could happen in the fight, saying that Usyk was given a tough fight by Joshua in the original fight at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in September 2021. Usyk took Joshua’s WBA (Super), IBF, WBO, and IBO heavyweight titles while also maintaining his unbeaten record, inflicting only the second defeat of the Brit’s career.

DAZN have assumed the role of the exciting, new and influential player in this current digital era within the sports entertainment market. Joshua has fought on Sky Sports for the entirety of his career, with promoter Eddie Hearn previously securing an exclusive deal with the broadcaster to the Brit’s fights.

Usyk will defend his unified world heavyweight titles for the first time against Joshua after the Brit exercised an immediate rematch clause following their September fight in London. He has left war-torn Ukraine to train for the clash, which is expected to take place in Saudi Arabia on July 23.

The British star’s revenge mission remains likely to take place this summer in Saudi Arabia, 10 months after he lost his belts to the Ukrainian. The rematch has already been delayed once with Usyk bravely taking up arms against Russian invasion.
