Anthony Joshua vs Oleksandr Usyk: Campbell predicts winner of heavyweight title fight


Former Commonwealth lightweight champion, Luke Campbell, has backed British boxer, Anthony Joshua to beat Ukrainian fighter, Oleksandr Usyk, when both men clash in a heavyweight title fight in September.

Campbell believes Joshua will have an advantage over Usyk because he has quick hands.

We reports that the fight will take place in London at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on September 25.

"I think it's a great fight, Usyk is an unbelievable talent," Campbell told Mirror Fighting.

"His technique and boxing IQ is certainly up there with the best, but is he a heavyweight?

"I don't think he's quite a heavyweight to be honest, this is where Joshua has the advantage.

"Joshua has got quick hands, and is a big strong heavyweight, so if he imposes his strengths I think he will win the fight.

"If he sits off, it could be Usyk's night, and I can't see Usyk wanting to get involved in a big strong heavyweight like Joshua. So his tactics will mostly be to make him miss, move around and Joshua has to put it on him."
