  • Oleksandr Usyk to win 9/4

What's our prediction?

Joshua will go into this fight in the shape of his life.

"I've learned how to condition my body for specific fights. I'm looking trim for this fight. I'm fighting a guy who is a 12-round fighter. So it would be silly of me to go in there bulky with my muscles screaming for oxygen. I've been training like a 15-round fighter in this camp. I will be well-conditioned to fight. That is key"

With a combination of strength and stamina, it's impossible to look beyond a Joshua win.
