Joshua: Usyk is a ’perfect’ fighter

Tony Bellew has total confidence he will dethrone Oleksandr Usyk on Saturday

Tony Bellew is still the WBC "emeritus" champion ahead of his fight with Oleksandr Usyk for all the world cruiserweight titles, WBC president Mauricio Sulaiman has confirmed.

Fighting on the road will not faze a man who has already dethroned three world champions in their backyards - Krzysztof Glowacki in Poland, Briedis in Latvia and Gassiev in Russian Federation.

The prize on the line is the undisputed cruiserweight championship, a title Usyk now holds.

In terms of being able to absorb people's onslaughts, Usyk has a very canny way of just getting out of range and coming back with his own counter-punch.

"To get the best out of them, they have to make the opponent adjust to you". I will try to speak less and do more, ' Usyk having arrived said.

Bellew will not shy away at any point, but he will struggle from the off to get a grip on this fight.

Republican Ron DeSantis defeats Andrew Gillum in Florida gubernatorial race
Oliva endorsed DeSantis before the primary, when most state lawmakers were backing Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam . Identity politics factored into this campaign in a way few expected before the August primary.

Froch said: Whatever is happening early on, if you're getting out-jabbed, if you can not get to him, don't forget it's a 12-round fight. So, Tony is yet to step in the ring with any monsters, whereas Usyk has. No excuses from "The Haymaker", but it was obvious that years of injuries had caught up with him, and his legs never looked steady enough to take punches from a fighter that had grown into his Heavyweight frame. He finds your weaknesses and exploits them.

However, Ukrainian Usyk, who now boasts a 15-0 professional record, has admitted he would consider stepping up a division to challenge Joshua, if he can brush aside Bellew.

"David Haye was a better fighter than me, but it's not about the better fighter because the better fighter does not always win". You need to inundate and immerse yourself by sparring this way and I think that's what Tony Bellew has done.

"No disrespect to Gassiev because he's an excellent fighter but on that night he froze and he was a walking punch bag".

"On reflection it's been a tough year but that's boxing, sometimes you don't get the breaks and it's a bit of a waiting game". He simply missed out the cutting phase, boiling down to the weight, he knows how to get the best out of himself in the cruiserweight division. Everything is good at the training camp.
