Great stuff this will be a good one
Sweet, now lets hope nothing happens between now and then to derail that like another Usyk injury.
No No No No No No, he is supposed to duck Usyk. This isn't meant to happen.
And people still going to hate
Great test for AJ. Looking forward to it.
What's the split?
I'd like to see the smaller Usyk put on a boxing lesson. Gotta go for the man that challenges himself.
This is great
To be fair, it was Eddie himself who was saying they might duck Usyk.
Good fight and the first AJ fight to really interest me since the Parker fight
I don't think he ever said "duck" and I think he said that Usyk was the fight he wanted to make but that they had other options if Usyk didn't play ball on the demands.
Looking forward to this one. Props to both men for getting this fight made.
Gassiev in Russia
Briedis in Latvia
Glowacki in Poland
Huck in Germany
Bellew in England
^^All current or former world champions at the time
Hunter in the US
Chisora in England
Gassiev, Briedis, Glowacki and Hunter were all undefeated
And now he's signed to face the way bigger, heavier, stronger, and more powerful AJ in England where everything is stacked against him, where he will likely have to win via shutout or KO to get the win, after only having fought twice in almost three years, and he's going to have to beat him twice if he wins the first fight
What was that you were saying about the size of his plums, Serge?
The only one of Usyk's last 10 fights (including the AJ one) which wasn't in his opponent's backyard is Mchunu who is a damned good fighter in his own right and that was on neutral soil
He didn't just win his world titles in his opponent's backyards, he defended and unified them in their backyards and didn't have a single home ref or judge in any of those fights
Every single fight Usyk has had at the world level has been in his opponent's backyard sans one and as said that was on neutral soil
