The match between Anthony Joshua and Oleksandr Usyk will attract a lot of public attention. Joshua will have a motive for revenge, but the Ukrainian has shown his quality countless times and it will not be easy for him. British Heavyweight boxer Derek Chisora thinks it's better for Joshua to lose by knockout than to lose by points
'Let me tell you something, if AJ gets knocked out it's good for him,' Chisora told IFL TV.
'If he loses on points, it's bad for him. If he loses on points, he's going to kick himself for the next 20 years. If he gets knocked out, he gets knocked out. You can't do anything if you get knocked out in the fifth round.'
Chisora also recalled his match against Dillian Whyte and the knockout defeat 'When I get knocked out in my last fight by Dillian I didn't complain. Did you hear me complain? No.' Chisora said.
It is difficult to estimate how this match could end, although most believe that Anthony Joshua will be much better prepared for this match than he was in the previous one. His motive will be, as we have already said, revenge for the previous defeat.
Another interesting fact is that the winner of this match could fight Tyson Fury who is planning to return. But that has not been confirmed yet. A spectacle awaits us in any case.
'In boxing, if you get knocked out it's a better way for you to go out but I don't think [that's how Usyk will win].
Usyk can only knock AJ out in the later rounds but in the first eight he won't knock him out. AJ will knock him out,' he said. We expect two top fighters to be maximally ready. What else can we expect but a great fight.
