    Usyk cannot KO Joshua. Simply can't.

    He doesn't possess the power nor the momentum to knock out a strong specimen like AJ. His pitty-pat soft punches can only itch Joshua.

    I am 100% sure it is Usyk who will gas out, because:

    1- He bulked up as he never did before. He is not used to fight in that weight.

    2- He has never fought a big and powerful boxer like AJ. Working on him isn't similar to working on Bellew or Gassiev.

    Thus, he will get exhausted in the middle of the match.

    AJ gassed in Klitschko match, because Klitschko is also a big and powerful guy, unlike Usyk.

    AJ just has to make it relatively close and the judges will do the rest for him. You heard it here first.

    Does Usyk need to become morbidly obese and turn Mexican for him to be able to KO Joshua ? LOL ridiculous

    He didn't gas with Ruiz because Ruiz was always still and easy to hit.

    A.J with aunt eddie should win this one. If A.J is not absolute and total bum.


    This does not changes that A.J is not better boxer than Usyk, he is just larger.

    As a boxer he is worse then 126 lber GRJ. :p:D
    Size does matters, A.J also is cash cow, :D with good aunt eddie. ;)

    If AJ wins, he's the better HW boxer regardless of your caveats or criteria you want to add

    We're talking second Ruiz, right? Joshua didn't gas out the second time because Ruiz was WAY TOO FAT and it was relatively easy to stay away from him.

    Lennox Lewis has already answered this question:

    I think it will be a great fight
    My predictions are -
    Cagey at the beginning
    AJ will try to use his jab and reach
    Usyk will try lateral movement to get around him but at some point will have to close distance and AJ will hope to time him with the right cross
    I dont think AJ will gas as I think he has learned thats bad news
    He will tie up a lot when Usyk gets in close. (as he tried with Ruiz #1 but Ruiz was v good at punching out of the clinch with short hooks)
    I would imagine he has been working on his stamina but he is still a very big heavily muscled guy so cant just empty the tank
    Usyk I think will be affected by his weight gain so slower
    In the later rounds Usyk will take more chances coming in, get tagged and knocked out - possible stopping the fight a bit early (really hope not)

    I am looking forward to it hugely though because Usyk is very skilled and could prove to be a nightmare for AJ on the night

    Lets just hope for a fair ref a good fight and a clear winner

    Yeah Ruiz punches so hard he KO'd shot to bits Arreola. Oh wait. Yeah just because im a fan of Lennox Lewis doesn't mean i agree with anything he says. Ruiz isn't a big puncher. Look at his record

    Not really buying into the "leaner AJ will no longer gas".
    His problem is mostly mental. He panics when under attack, and doesn't believe in his stamina/recovery abilities. I feel all that nervous energy makes him gas more than an extra few pounds of muscle mass.

    This is the least ****ish version of LL I've ever seen. I like him alot better in this much more casual format. He doesn't seem like a smarmy, pretentious wanker at all! Is LL actually not a ****? Maybe I've been wrong all this time? Maybe he just acted ****ish on a couple of very notable occaisions, but is usually a righteous dude? i'd rather think that. Good interview.

    No his problem is mostly unnatural muscles and him exerting too much. He gassed against Takam, Klitschko, and against Pulev in round 3 when he threw the kitchen sink at his opponents. When he paces himself like against Parker, the Ruiz rematch and after round 3 against Pulev his stamina seems to be better
