Hearn is not afraid of a heavy Usyk: Joshua is a monster
Another photo and video posted on social networks of the heavier Alexander Usyk (18-0, 13 KOs) did not make any impression on Eddie Hearn. The promoter of Anthony Joshua (24-1, 21 KOs) is confident that his protégé will cope with the undefeated Ukrainian on September 25.
“In my opinion, Usyk will never be heavy, bloated, really heavy in size. But he will always have excellent skills. This transformation takes time,” said the head of Matchroom Boxing in an interview with talkSPORT.
“Let's just say AJ would have been much easier to fight Usyk a year and a half ago, now Usyk had a fight with Chisora, which helped him to understand what he needed to work on, but AJ is just a monster! The big good fighter will always defeat the good little fighter,” Hearn said.
According to bookmakers, Joshua, who will defend his WBA, WBO and IBF heavyweight belts, is the favorite for the September's fight in London. The coefficient for the Briton is 1.44, for the Ukrainian - 3.25.
