Cooking Joshua for Usyk. ‘Zero’ fighter from Australia challenged Anthony to a fight


Australian heavyweight prospect (over 90.7 kg) Demsey McKean (22-0, 14 KOs), who has been a prospect for nine years, challenged British ex-world champion Anthony Joshua (24-3, 22 KOs). Recall that this southpaw was one of the main sparring partners of AJ before his fights against Oleksandr Usyk.

Yesterday McKean knocked out in the 3rd round of a certain
Patrick Korte. And then he got pissed off and said he wanted Joshua.

“I think I’ve done enough [чтобы получить следующий бой с кем-то известным]. I again arranged an early knockout, and now you have to rely on Eddie Hearn to keep his word. He said he would [бой против Эй-Джея] on “Gabba” (multifunctional stadium in Brisbane, Brisbane Cricket Ground, ed.). Obviously this would be my priority. But, in general, I’m ready for any of those top-level guys that he mentioned, ”said the Australian.

According to him, this is also Derek Chisora ​​or Dillian Whyte.

“I have a lot of respect for these guys, they have done a lot for boxing, and I think my time has come. I need to start climbing up the rankings pretty quickly and I think beating one of them will really take me to the top,” McKean dreams.

Hearn, of course, stated that a fight with Joshua would be “an incredible night of boxing”, and in general this is a real possibility, but did not add anything specific.

In Eddie’s words, “He’s 22-0, he’s in the top 10, what else do you want? He has yet to fight one of those elite guys, but that’s what usually happens: you build your record, study, climb up the rankings, and then fight one of the tops. It’s a natural next step.”
