The final battle of the eyes of Usyk and Joshua before the rematch: video


Tomorrow Saudi Arabia will host a rematch between Ukrainian world heavyweight champion Oleksandr Usyk (19-0, 13 KOs) and British ex-champion Anthony Joshua (24-2, 22 KOs).

Today, the boxers went through the official weigh-in procedure, as a result of which it turned out that Usyk did not “get loose” at all, and Joshua outweighed him by 10 kg.

After clarifying the protocol numbers, Alexander and Anthony staged a protracted “battle of the eyes”, not taking their eyes off each other, despite repeated calls from promoter Eddie Hearn to finally turn their faces to the public.
