If Usyk does not TKO Takam then he is the most overrated HW ever.

    Considering he is rated by most here as the second best HW - after Fury. Anything less than a TKO against Takam will expose him as overrated. I really hope he does not embarrass his fan boys.

    Imagine the horror if he was knocked out by Takam lmao!!

    Usyk is considered the second best HW after Fury?

    I don't think he TKOs Takam. Joshua struggled and Povetkin was on PEDs, and Chisora put in a career best performance. Usyk should shut him out, or at least win 9 rounds. Usyk imo will be the 5 top Heavyweight


    1. Joshua
    2. Fury
    3. Wilder
    4. Whyte
    5. Usyk

    absolute tosh,he may want the twelve rounds at the new weight.You clearly don't understand boxing and I'd be surprised if he does stop Takam as he's very durable.

    Takam is a durable guy, I fully expect Usyk to pretty much shut him out, no shame in not TKO’ing him whatsoever.

    Tko'ing over matched opponents does NOTHING for the fighter. This is a good safe test with a live top 20 (10-20) hw journeyman.

    Usyk needs to prove takam doesn't belong in the ring with him exactly how Aj did

    Aj struggled, seriously ????
    Aj completely dominated takam and proved without a doubt takam doesn't belong near a ring with Aj

    He isn’t rated the second best HW in the division though, regardless he doesn’t have to stop Takam, Parker was rated top 5 by a lot of the guys on here and he never stopped Takam, it was a close fight.

    If the Best HW who is a power puncher that guns for KOs took 10 rounds before stopping Takam, in what could barely even be considered a TKO, then a slick, movement based #2 shouldn't be expected to KO him.

    This. Also, Joshua was struggling with Takam's head movement in the early and middle rounds. It took Joshua a good 8 to 9 rounds to adjust to Takam to where he could start landing clean.
