    Usyk has fought Chisora, Bellew and Witherspoon at HW. Joshua has done far more.

    No man I mean their whole boxing career as a whole. Not just as a certain weight or professionally.

    Usyk has vastly more experience than AJ does In that sense. I dont mean at HW.

    CW and HW are very different. Usyk's "whole career experience" doesn't work on Joshua. Joshua is host and Usyk is guest in HW.

    Pro boxing is to earn money.
    Yeah, with Papachenko as advisor for Usyk, A.J will beat him.
    Nothing wrong, pro boxing is to earn money. Money.
    Usyk will earn money.

    Joshua also is not big host, if he will gas like vs Pulev, Usyk might KO him. If he will not listen to Papachenko.
    Loma too should had fired Papachenko some years ago.

    Joshua is HW's cash cow. They won't cut this cow. Ruiz 1 was the biggest experience for Joshua's owners.

    Joshua by UD is as clean as daylight.

    Ofc Usyk will not win on cards vs A.J in NO case. Worst thing that he maybe dreams on Papachenko. Under Papachenko he might get stopped and they most likely with a glance are ready for british stoppage.

    To win A.J Usyk needs to KO A.J and quickly. Papachenko is last guy who might teach to KO ppl quickly.

    Agree. Usyk can't win by decision. Also, referee didn't let inside fighting in AJ vs Parker fight. Because he was knowing that AJ could get mauled. I hate bodybuilder merchant. I hope Usyk gonna ko him.

    Usyk would have walked through Fat Andy Ruiz, yet AJ took the mother of all beatings off him.

    If I was AJ -

    I'd be working on that jab a lot. I'd lean back and jab, jab, jab, and use my physical superiority to outreach Usyk. I'd also be working on my accuracy with those straight right hands, trying to do damage in short bursts, never committing too much, and seeing what Usyk has to offer.

    If I notice an opening when Usyk is forced to come after me, I'd try and land a decent counter shot and if I sense that that hurt him, I'd go after him and try to KO/score a knockdown.

    AJ will have to be careful though. Gassing out late on against Usyk would be a nightmare.

    If AJ can be smart enough to know when to commit, he should be OK.

    How do you guys think Usyk will do with all that extra weight?

    I think he will still retain enough speed to outmaneuver AJ, while having a little extra sting in his punches. Will also help mitigate AJ if he tries to bully him via clinching.
