Could Anthony Joshua's Rival, Usyk Take On Tyson Fury

The current unified heavyweight boxing champion of the world Oleksandr Usyk shared some training pictures on his Instagram page. The Ukrainian boxer who caused the fall of British-Nigerian Anthony Joshua seemed to be training hard instead of relaxing after beating the number boxer in the heavyweight division.

It was a shock to the world to see this challenger defeat Anthony Joshua because it didn't seem possible that he would actually win the fight due to that fact that Joshua had more reach and better punching power than he does. However it was truly amazing to see that while he now has the belts, he is prepared to defend it against whoever comes to challenge it.

And that person maybe Tyson Fury, because since the defeat of Deontay wilder he has the right to challenge Usyk but if he refuses he may have to fight another boxer. There has been speculations if any boxer may even be a match for Fury but there is no doubt that Usyk may be able to do damage to him.

If the fight were to take place, Usyk may dominate Fury with those quick jabs and maintain his distance through out the 1st to 5th rounds and when he gets tired due to that big body of his. He will close the distance with hooks and uppercuts either way given his athleticism and agility of a cat he can actually win by TKO.

Check out the screenshots of his training photos on Instagram below.

A few weeks ago, he finally decided the location for his rematch which may take place next year in his home country of Ukraine. Many fans are speculating that he may beat Anthony Joshua again due to the fact that throughout their previous fight he absolutely dominated Joshua without a problem.

The battle between him and Anthony Joshua was a sensational one with Usyk proving that he was the better boxer and indeed he is the most technical boxer in the world after all. We don't know if he plans to change his tactics in his next match but it's probably that he will take on Joshua the exact way he fought him last bout.
