Mike Tyson, a boxing legend, believes Anthony Joshua will lose to Oleksandr Usyk in their upcoming title rematch in a few days.
The two-time heavyweight champion will face the Ukrainian for the second time next Saturday, live on talkSPORT, in an attempt to reclaim the WBA, IBF, and WBO heavyweight world titles he lost to him last September.
Many experts and fans believe Joshua will face a difficult battle in the rematch.
Usyk won the first fight convincingly across all rounds, but Joshua has changed his entire training team in an attempt to reverse the outcome.
“It’s going to be difficult to beat him,” Tyson said live on Instagram.
The former boxing legend advised Joshua to deal with Usyk’s jab while also keeping the pressure on if he wants to win.
“It’s going to be difficult to beat Usyk because he’s fast and his jab outpunched Joshua.” Joshua must learn to manage his jab.
“He’s too quick for Joshua.” Joshua must apply a great deal of pressure on him and keep it on him all night.
“He’s a strong puncher, but he’s not as accurate – you have to be accurate against someone like that.”
“Because he moves so much, his jab is educated, and he simply outwits the guy.”
