Anthony Joshua and Oleksandr Usyk’s fight is inching closer with time. The pair will meet each other this weekend for Joshua’s WBA, WBO, and IBF heavyweight titles. This contest is one of the most-awaited and perhaps the most important fight of the heavyweight division of 2021. Also, it is said to be the British boxer’s sternest test, because he hasn’t faced a more tactical and calculated fighter like Usyk before.

My camp is good, more job, very good,” he said.

This contest holds a special significance in both Joshua’s and Usyk’s careers. Also, the ex-cruiserweight champ, too, hasn’t faced someone as elite as ‘AJ’ as he’s considerably new in the heavyweight circuit.

Ever since this fight’s announcement, Usyk has put himself through some stringent tests. As Joshua is one highly intimidating boxer, he most likely will be a favorite in this fight. But the Ukrainian fighter too holds some weight, and he is ready to shock the world.

If Usyk gets past Joshua in this bout, he’ll have a prime chance to fight for the undisputed throne ahead. But before that, he has a much bigger task on hand as he’s facing one of the finest heavyweights of all time on Saturday night.
