    aj stops usyk between the 8th and 10th rd. fight will be pretty even when it ends. but usyk will have started to diminish quicker than aj, which will get him stopped.

    Usyk will stop him in the 5th. Only way Joshua wins is if the fight gets stopped on cuts

    Have you thought about the round? If you can predict the round of a ko/tko, its extremely lucrative.

    I have never done this before. but you can win 2000 for every 100 you invest if you can predict the tko/ko round. Tempting.

    What makes you think that's realistic? Usyk has fantastic cardio and never seems to "diminish" in fights.

    Not saying it can't happen, because obviously anything can.. but what makes you think this is a likely outcome?

    ive seen both of them fight. i know what each one can do against others, and against each other. i understand the plan, or lack of, in the first fight. i know what adjustments need to be made by aj to overcome what he faced in the first fight. i know the trainer he has now is good enough to show him, and prepare him, to do what he needs to do.
    its his fight to lose, and i think he will be properly instructed on how not to lose to an usyk. you can have the biggest gas tank in boxing, but it gets punched enough, its gonna leak. fast.

    Copium and hopium > realism. He desired and predicted a Joshua victory first time 'round and is clinging to a meagre chance that he'll be vindicated in the rematch.

    I am gonna predict two things, although many others know more detail about either or both fighters.

    1) It is likely to have the makings of a Great Fight.

    Both guys are coming in highly motivated & well trained.
    Usyk is the consummate professional, about the wisest ring technician you can imagine.
    He also has a strong streak of passion & wildness that he channels-this is an unusual combination, teak-tough & passionate yet so controlled.

    AJ is the superior athletic specimen. While he has some self-doubts & boxing trauma, he is still more a Warrior & has everything to prove here.
    I do not believe that he will be gun shy, nor as great as Usyk is that he can avoid the superior Firepower of an Joshua willing to go all out but with some significant science behind his attack.

    Usyk does not speak of it much, but feels the weight & inspiration of Ukranian aspirations upon him.

    2) I think it will go nearly the distance.
    Could go all the way, & it is possible my preference for the smaller man I admire as a person is biasing my forecast, but I will venture an 11th round TKO.

    I am more confident that Usyk finds a way to win again.
    Mountains of Skill & Will are just enough to overcome a powerful, strategically sounds opponent who fights almost as efficient a fight as he does.


    I believe it has the potential to be an Ali-Frazier level engagement, with both expressing great respect for each other.
    What is perhaps a bolder prediction that that specific outcome is that it will be a competitive, impassioned & superbly contested affair.

    Usyk already schooled Joshua last September and was a round from taking him out.

    Usyk is the more sophisticated boxer of the two, therefore better placed to take an informative read from the first bout. Joshua still doesn't really know what happened to him. He's had to look for answers and is hoping to have found them in new coaching staff.

    Usyk knows that a lot of money is riding on a Joshua victory and will be looking to take the judges out of the reckoning.

    Usyk has seen that he can stun Joshua with his sharp punches. He knows what changes he has to make, as well as the educated risks he has to take, to hurt Joshua and to better weather any return fire.

    Usyk T/KO Joshua mid-late.

    I'm sticking with a Usyk stoppage in about round nine.

    who are you? you ever make a prediction? why are you sticking your nose in our conversation? dont know who you are, but i will bet all the money you have, that i have called way more fights correctly, and a whole lot less incorrectly, than you ever have, or ever will. and i dont even know who you are. thats how sure i am of it.

    I am abandoning conventional wisdom and predicting a Joshua victory. Can't put down any one factor, though the Usyk weight issue is a bit of a surprise.

    im serious. have we talked boxing before? i honestly dont remember. and i have no clue how much you know about boxing. i just wrote that because i know how much I know about boxing, and have complete confidence in that. i dont remember everyone i trade words with, but i do have a mental list of all those who i have pegged as knowledgeable. i mean ive seen your avatar, but nothing sticks out that would tell me youre one of the maybe 5% of posters who know boxing on this site. maybe i missed your knowledgeable analysis.
    well heres your chance to tell me how this fight is gonna go, and why. then i can gauge if youre an actual boxing head, or part of the 95% who dksab. make an impression with your knowledge and i will be sure to remember you in the future. i wouldnt lie about something so insignificant. well i wouldnt lie period, but lying about something like that is ridiculous.
    i am often baked when surfing on my computer, so maybe thats why i missed your wisdom.
    you got to understand, every fanboy on this site comes at me when i go against their crush. they start to blend together in the dksab bin.
    anyway, ive been around long enough, made enough predictions, that those who know, know.
