Usyk will stop Joshua in rematch – Wilder’s coach


Former opponent and current coach of ex-heavyweight champion (over 90.7 kg) Deontay Wilder (42-1-2, 41 KOs) American Malik Scott and US heavyweight Gerald Washington (25-5-1, 13 KOs) talked to an American reporter during a training session in a boxing gym.

spoke out about the future rematch between the unified champion from Ukraine Oleksandr Usyk (19-0, 13 KOs) and ex-champion from Britain Anthony Joshua (24-2, 22 KOs), as well as about Joshua’s new coach, American specialist Robert Garcia.

– Malik Scott, you sparred with Oleksandr Usyk. Gerald Washington, you sparred with Anthony Joshua. And you both fought Deontay Wilder. And now you (Scott) are also his coach. So what do you think about Usyk-Joshua rematch? Disassemble the fight.

— [Вашингтон] I think Joshua will try to snatch the win. He will not box, but will try to be more aggressive. But Usyk is a relaxed, experienced and confident fighter.

Malik, what do you think?

– I think it will be a more competitive fight than the first fight, but I bet on Usyk’s victory with a stoppage.

– Robert Garcia is Joshua’s coach now, what do you think about that?

This is a good opportunity for Robert. I don’t know about their chemistry. I don’t know if he coached heavyweights.

Yes, I trained years ago.

I don’t know about their chemistry.

— [Вашингтон] Joshua with Robert Garcia won’t back down.

– Mexican style.

– Yes, he will try to bring down all the power. Don’t know. I see Joshua as a huge fighter.

– What do you remember from sparring with Joshua?

– He was big. He was preparing for Kubrat Pulev. He is good technically, answered everything.

How hard does Joshua hit?

– He’s strong. You saw him. It’s made for action. He has everything.

Who hits harder: Wilder or Joshua?

I think Wilder.
