It would be better for Joshua to lose to Usyk by knockout – Chisora


The famous British heavyweight Derek Chisora ​​is convinced that his compatriot, former world champion Anthony Joshua (24-2, 22 KOs) should not be afraid of losing a rematch to Oleksandr Usyk (19-0, 13 KOs) ahead of schedule, because such an outcome would be better for him, than another defeat on points.

“If Joshua gets knocked out, it will be good for him,” Chisora ​​said. – If he loses on points, then it, on the contrary, will be bad. Do you understand? If he concedes by decision of the judges, he will chastise himself for the next 20 years. But if he loses by knockout, he can say, “I got knocked out. I couldn’t help it after being knocked out in the fifth round. Now, if it came to the sixth round, I would have knocked him out myself.”

“Do you see now why I didn’t complain when Dillian Whyte knocked me out? Yes, I fucking got knocked out, but in boxing this is the best way to get out of the fight, Derek is sure. Usyk can only knock out Joshua in the late rounds. But in the first eight rounds, Anthony knocked him out. (In the first fight) Joshua tried to box and it didn’t work. He needs to forget about this nonsense (with boxing) and unleash all his power on this guy, that’s all.

The Usyk-Joshua rematch is scheduled for August 20 in Saudi Arabia.

Meanwhile, the expert believes that Joshua made a mistake in choosing a new coach before the rematch with Usyk.
