Parker: 'I bet on Usyk, but the fight with Joshua will be interesting'
“Joshua will always be a threat to everyone,” says Joseph Parker (30-2, 21 KOs), lost the WBO belt Anthony Joshua (24-2, 22 KOs) in March 2018. The Englishman has only twelve days left before the rematch with Oleksandr Usyk (19-0, 13 KOs).
“He has natural strength and the ability to shock opponents. I myself am curious what tactics he will choose and where his head is now. Because you can be in great physical shape, but if you are mentally in the wrong place, everything else is meaningless and a waste of time. Joshua was a good and strong champion. He can become him again, now everything depends on him and his new team. Let's see what happens in this rematch. It seems to me that the victory in the first battle gave Usyk such strength of mind that he will win in the second fight as well. But it will definitely be an interesting fight," the New Zealander added.
The IBF, WBA and WBO heavyweight belts of the Ukrainian will be at stake in the rematch between Usyk and Joshua. This time the boxers will share the money from the profit equally.
