    Usyk knows he's not gonna get a fair decision if it goes to the judges so I reckon he's going for the knockout between 7-12!

    Has AJ ever rematched vs anyone he has beaten?

    His only rematch was because he lost the first fight

    In the contracts he gets his opponents to sign since beating a prehistoric Wlad, rematch clashes only apply if he loses.

    To be fair, having 3 belts comes with it mandatories and other opportunities.

    I think AJ and Wlad were actually in takes for a rematch until Wlad decided to retire. After that, what point would there have been in a rematch with any of his opponents?

    Ruiz 3rd fight? Why? Parker rematch? Povetkin? Pulev?

    Not necessary. He easily UD'd Ruiz and Parker, KO'd Povetkin, and KO'd Pulev who he was well beating on the cards.

    He maybe could have offered Povetkin a rematch because it was a close fight, but I don't consider it an issue that he didn't.

    He has nothing to prove.

    Any Usyk fans in here? Do you think it was good for Usyk to add on weight.

    Anyone else think what this fight needs to really be interesting is an early knockdown?

    Personally, I don't, but I would have to trust that Usyk knows himself better than I do, and he and his team have got a good gameplan.

    Yes, but only 70 dollars on a Aj by decision, which will give me $210 if i get my prediction right

    Unfortunately you'll lose 70 dollars. My bet on Usyk by decision.

    You're a Joshua hater, surely you realize Joshua will have corrupt Judges behind him right ? Usyk will have to win a bare minimum of 10 rounds to take the victory and if he looses the early rounds by being too inactive it's a done deal. Usyk is not getting a decision in Britain. He'll have to get the KO

    Better hope those rounds Usyk wins aren't close whatsoever or the judges will save the bodybuilder

    At the end of the day guys if Usyk really does win but is robbed then everyone will know it.
