Hearn: Joshua is an underdog? I like it!"
Oleksandr Usyk (19-0, 13 KOs) after an impressive victory over Anthony Joshua (24-2, 22 KOs) in the first fight is the favorite before the rematch on August 20. "That's wonderful!" - AJ promoter Eddie Hearn commented on such bookmaker odds in an interview with IFL TV.
“I like that AJ is the underdog in this match because he has already lost before. In addition, Usyk may be better now, because he is used to more weight, he successfully fights larger opponents. Although I know that he has already competed in the amateur heavyweight division,” said the head of Matchroom Boxing.
"Anthony will definitely be the underdog here, and I love that!" Hearn claims before the battle in Saudi Arabia.
