Both Joyce and Parker have already dealt with AJ. An Englishman in Olympic boxing, a New Zealander in the union of three championship belts. They both lost to him, but at the same time they believe that Usyk will again prove his superiority on August 20 and defend the IBF, WBA and WBO belts in the royal category. Duel number two will be held in Saudi Arabia.

“We don’t really know what Joshua is doing with the new team and how he trains. I hope he grows as a boxer, but I prefer Usyk, ”Parker said.

“Joshua has chances for a puncher, of course, because he hits very hard, but Usyk has already beaten him once, which will only give him confidence. The puncher must punch first to use his power. Joshua can win, but I bet on Usyk again, ”Joyce shared his opinion.

The best of Parker vs. Joyce will be the mandatory contender for the WBO heavyweight title.
