To defeat Usyk Joshua needs a brain transplant – boxing veteran


British boxing veteran Carl Froch is convinced that former world champion Anthony Joshua (24-2, 22 KOs) will not take revenge on the current holder of the WBO, WBA and IBF heavyweight belts Oleksandr Usyk (19-0, 13 KOs). Their fight is scheduled for August 20.

Before the second leg, the Briton repeatedly stated that he was going to fight aggressively, not box, and took on a new coach, Robert Garcia. Froch shakes his head.

“Sometimes change is good, but for Joshua to beat Usyk, he needs a brain transplant. He has all the physical data, but I just don’t think he can win,” said the Lightweight Boxing Show veteran.

Why Joshua made a mistake in choosing a new coach in front of Usyk – expert

In another interview for
iFL TV Froch said that “It will be very difficult for Joshua to defeat Usyk if he does not change his way of thinking and his thinking. He needs to start believing in himself and step into the ring with all the confidence that he can and will do his job. If he goes out with faith, he can succeed.”

“I just think that after losing to Ruiz, he didn’t have that mindset and winning mentality anymore. I didn’t see it in him. He sort of “survived” the rematch with Ruiz, and I was not impressed with the victory over Pulev,” Karl criticizes. – In general, it will be difficult for him. I’m not saying he can’t do it, because he can. But he needs to clean himself up mentally. Because if he doesn’t believe in himself, he might not even bother to show up in the arena.”

Froch also believes that Wilder is likely to knock out Joshua and Usyk is one of the best southpaws ever. Chisora ​​is so absolutely sure that it would be better for Joshua to lose to Usyk by knockout.
