Anthony Joshua vs Usky 2 promises to be a fight that will determine who is the best in the world right now. The two contrasting styles part boxing fans and experts alike. One thing is for sure, Usyk has the technical ability over Joshua. So, if you are a technical fan and understand the movement and beauty of boxing then you will opt for an Usyk win.
To average watchers, the two heavyweights look worlds apart with Joshua towering over Usyk and with the body to match. AJ is cumbersome, however, with regimented movement and lacking punching variety. In stark contrast, Usyk moves effortlessly around the ring punching from various angles and with precision. Perhaps the war in Ukraine could play into the hands of Joshua in this bout? Usyk has braved the war and still managed to find time to train for AJ vs Usyk 2, how? Is anyone’s guess!

Anthony Joshua vs Usyk Fight Prediction:
This is a tough fight to call, especially given the situation in Ukraine, and how that may have impacted on Usyk’s training. The best odds, for me personally, sit in the Method Of Victory market. I would go for either by way of knockout. This market is better in odds than the fighter markets in terms of value.
